Re: double chin removal

Got a larger photo? You won't exactly be able to print this out very big @ that resolution. Also, if you do have a larger one - please upload it somewheres as a high quality JPEG, the current one has a lot of artifacts from JPEG compression (especially on the faces).

PSD found here.
On the base photo layer I adjusted the colors with a selective color adjustment.

And if you could think of any other improvements, please let me know all the steps so I can learn.

Thank you very much in advance and Happy Sunday!

Re: double chin removal

Cropped.. whitened the teeth and whites of the eyes.. got rid of red in eyes.. Painted hair dark brown on a Linear light layer at about 60% opacity.. new layer linear light layer at about 55% opacity of same color with hide all mask then opened up the skin and hair with white, darkening them some.. Painted purse and got rid of some highlights by girls head.. Curves.. fixed skin artifacts
Might be good enough for email, web, or background

Added the bigger version

Small ......... larger

mrsrelayze (Mrs Real Lazy),

What retouching software do you have? This will help focus the tips to the programs you have available to work with.

Please read the FAQ's:

"Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?
No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo."

"Images you own can be posted by you if you have permission of anyone recognizable in the image. "

"Celebrity images or random images from Google or anywhere else on the internet cannot be posted unless explicit permission from both the photographer and the subject has been obtained."

I do believe Jordan Knight as an ex-New Kids on the Block singer would qualify..

Re: double chin removal

Here's my version, I also made a cropped version to get rid of some extra space while still keeping the environment. I wish I would have had the full size when I started, a lot more detail in the linked one Looking at it again after a break the skintone are a bit too yellow for me but I didn't really take too much time since I was working with a small version.

How I did it:
Basically I started out cleaning up different things, and blackened the dark backdrop area's and cleaned up dust spots with the healing brush. Next I used curves to adjust the background with a mask, then each face and arm had a different curves layer with its own mask, adjusted to about 10%,28%,32%,0% CMYK and used the RGB channel in curves to give the skin some contrast (a little high in the midtones on ur face, but I already flattened the image) For the purse I just cloned it out and rebuilt the rest with the burn tool. For the hair I made a hue/sat adj layer and made a hairmask, used hue to turn it brown and turned down the lightness slider to make it a chocolate color, next I turned the adj. layer to softlight or overlay and reduced opacity. To remove the double chin (having the high-res really helps here) I made a new layer used the lasso selection tool to draw where the jawline is, then continued down so the neck is selected but the jawline is protected. Clone on the empty layer, start from the bottom of the neck and continue up so you have more neck area, use the healing brush to blend any clone lines. It will look funny now because theres no shadowing and the jawline will almost disappear when if you deselect. Next with a blank overlay layer select black at 4-6% slowly darken the overall neck so it's tone is darker than the jawline, creating depth. Now do the same on the jawline trying to keep it soft so it gives you that shadow. Now inverse the selection (cmd+shift+I I think) so the neck will be protected and the jawline is ready. Softly brush in a bit of shadow on the edges of the jaw to darken them in a bit more.

Hope this helps,
let me know if you have any questions

Re: double chin removal

In my version the chin is done with the clone stamp and a little painting.
