One for the pro retouchers...yes you shelby & co

Hi guys new to the forum, have read some great advice so a big thankyou,
Now a couple of questions of my own,

1, not using the degrunge method how can i go about getting rid of mottled skin and tan lines on this girl

2, where to go for good tutorials and tips, like the lyden website, i have done quite a few searches but keep coming up with the glitter guru tips

btw this picture is the original and i'm the photographer,

thanks in advanced

it's possible to use information from other channels, sometimes the "mottleding" may only show up in the red or cyan channels...

For the mottling of the skin I would recomend this tutorial:
http://www.dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=23233
Dan Margulis has some good tips on removing the blotchiness , his referance to ch. 16 was from his Lab color book.

As for where to look, you have me theres an overflow of tutorials with excessive bluring, degrunge being the best of the bluring techniques.

*Edited*
To remove the tan lines:
You basically have to match the rgb values of the untan skin to the values of the tan skin so they match up, doing this on an adjustment layer so you can feather the mask out and adjust and tweak.

I'll give it a shot when I get back from supper later on tonight,

Hope this helps

I believe he was referring to looking through the individual color channels, Red, Green, Blue or Cyan,Magenta,Yellow,Black etc... All represented in grayscale, the lighter the shade the more red or more cyan it will have. Looking through one that didn't have any spots for example. You could then copy the section in the good channel and paste it over the bad section. This will leave it looking kind of funky, as the new piece will not match the tonality of the old. Then adjust this new section with the curves to make the grayscale tonality even.

To sum it up, you basically copy a section of good "information" and paste it over the problem spot, they look the same now only the shade is different, adjusting with levels makes the grayscale tonality match, when switched to RGB mode it will all be in color and no blotches.

Another example is a blue pen marking on a photograph scan, when looking at the channels the red and green will be free of any markings, the blue channel will have the pen marks in it...this is assuming its pure blue pen ink.

It sounds harder than it is, hopefully I didn't confuse you

Whoops typo

I meant:

Havent tried the Dgrin picture yet...looks like a tough one, might be kind of hard to follow dans technique if you dont have the book though.

Hi there

Since there are no pores to worry about why not just used a screen blur with a multiply duplicate to darken.
Simple easy and effective.
