Hello :) And master of the lashes anyone?

Hey, i've been a member for quite sometime but never made a post. I normally do ad and web design and composition, things like that. But for the past year have been dabbling in retouching photos. It's mainly just a hobby, but I would like for it to be good

I have two questions. One is what would be the best way to get stray hairs off of textured clothing. I have a photo of someone wearing a ribbed shirt, and the hairs are laying across it. I've had a difficult time getting it off without making it noticeable.

Also, for those of you who are really good at doing eyelashes, what's the best way to master natural eyelashes? Do you add those in by hand (without a eyelash brush) for each picture or do you use a ready made eyelash brush?

Also what's the best way to make "perfect" (straight across eyelashes) I would like to be able to make these myself and wondering the best way to do that. I've tried using the pen tool, but am having a difficult time with it as I have never had to use the pen tool before. I have several sets of eyelashes i've downloaded, and none of them are what i'm looking for, lol.

Thanks so much, ash_mac2001

I don't know about the eyelashes so I can't help you there. For the hair on the shirt, are you using the clone or healing tools? How are you doing it?

I tried the healing tool, and that didn't seem to work to well. I also have used the patch tool, which seemed to work the best out of all the methods, but their are a few spots that make it look like the shirt was "picked" after i'm finished.

I would try using the clone stamp as well, use a part that has no hair but is similar in texture, preferably a part that is very close to the area you're working on. Maybe someone else can come up with a different technique but this is how I would approach it.

A sample "photo of someone wearing a ribbed shirt, and the hairs are laying across it" posted here would help us in offering advise.. Without seeing the picture I would say use the clone tool.

Also, Are you wanting to make eyelashes or eyebrows?

Thanks so much, ash_mac2001
this technique works well sometimes (depending on the texture). Dup your image and then use a hide all mask on the new layer then check out the position of the hair. Depending on where it lies, move the background image so there is clean shirt ribbing under the hair. Then move back to the top layer's mask and use a white soft brush and paint over the hair. If you are off, reposition the bottom layer. You can do this a number of times if there are a number of hairs. Again this doesn't always works, it depends on the texture, lighting , etc. It might be helpful if you post the image.
Hope this works for you.

Making a eyelash brush ( 4 free eyelash pic. included) Click here)
use brush either black or the color of the natural lashes @100% opacity (to be adjusted later) on a new softlight layer then use the transform tool to move and shape the brush to the eye.

OR

Use the "freeform pen tool" to draw your own lashes (click here). Drawing on a new softlight layer
