GIMP Degrunging.

So simple. I didn't even do any pre blemish removal. I did do the degrunging twice (same settings, just different opacity adjustments on the blur layer. To do a highpass filter in GIMP, just Dup for total of three layers, Gausean blur the Top layer and set to Grain Extract and Merge down and set the resulting layer to Overlay.

I set the blur radius for the Highpass to 7 and the blur layer set to 15. I also adjusted the opacity of the blur layer until I just got a good focus. I then turned off the base layer and merge all visible layers (note that I made many copies of the original). I then dup the base layer and set it to the top. I set it to Grain Extract and merge down. I then set the layer property to Overlay and dupped til the skin looked good. Again, I did the above steps twice for the result shown (well I did do a dup for three layers, set the Top layer to Overlay and merged down and set the resulting layer to Lighten and played with Opacity for a contrast enhancement).

This may be a bit much, but here it is anyway.

Re: Bumpy Skin Retouch Help!

Happy New Year everybody!

Was sorta' bored this evening, so I lurked around online. Found this post, and thought I'd give it a shot without spending too much time on it. My efforts are attached here. This is just an idea of what could be done, as I would need a few additional hours to perfect it. As I perceive it, there are a bunch of problems with this particular photo, with the patches of miscoloration of the model's skin being the major one. It could have been diffused by professionally applied make-up. Oh well,that is what we retouchers are for as well...

Re: Bumpy Skin Retouch Help!

Hi Butch,

Could you please go a bit more into detail. I love the look of your process, but am not exactly understanding some of the steps.

What do you mean when you say "produced a pore mask with highpass filter, and what radius"?

When you say stamped layer, what do you mean by this?

Not sure which layers were duped and set to multiply either. Thanks in advance!

I duplicated a layer and produced a pore mask with a highpass filter and turned the visibility off.

Then degrundge with a 15 highpass and 5 blur... masked as needed.

Stamped a layer set the blend mode to screen and applied gaussian blur at 10 pixels. Reduced opacity to around 70 I believe then duplicated and changed the dups mode to multiply. I grouped the screen and multiply layers and applied a mask to remove from eyes.

Turned on the pore mask and adjusted opacity as needed. Then sharpened.

Using Soft Focus Technique

I copied the background layer and used screen blending mode. To this layer I added an aggressive Gaussian Blur of about 45. I then copied the blurred layer to a new layer and used mutliply blending Mode. I decreased the opacity of the multiply layer to about 34% to keep the photo from getting too dark.

Next I selected the Screen Layer and the Multiply layer and used new group from layers option to combine the layers and to that group I added a group mask.

Then I painted the mask in with a white brush.
