Hair textures are different.. if her hair is fine you need fine hair! the stolen hair should match in texture, flow and color to keep the headaches down..

Sorry but it was already linked here..
They are on Bert Monroys's site:
http://revision3.com/pixelperfect/page/all/
All kinds of good stuff there..;+}
Check out making hair.
I would be curious if some one talking about using other parts of hair and putting it into another image? That sounds very interesting.. How do you do it..
Can some one post a link to some kind of tutorial?
What do you guys do.. mask out hair then warp it to the shape you want?
In any case would appreciate further info.. how do you blend it in etc...
Thank you
Snook

Re: How to add hair...

Thanks Snook,

I've seen the tutorial... It's great! I thought that using the smudge tool was a different technique

I'm always open to new ideas!

I've used the copy, paste and mask hair method (have yet to find tutorial!):

1. Look for the right piece of hair within a group of photos from the same shoot (same model, same background). It's a bit like finding the missing puzzle pieces!

2. Select, feather, copy and paste many pieces of "good" hair to a new document (same size as image you're working with).

3. Drag selected pieces of hair to the image you're working on.

4. Adjust the pieces to fit (color, size, alter, warp, etc...).

5. Apply a hide all layer mask to each piece.

6. Reveal as desired.

This is my method... I'd like to learn others!

Re: How to add hair...

Not sure if this applies but I found this method excellent. It seems to work nicely if you need to add hair to someone completely bald or else add onlya patch of hair. As you do the tutorial you will swear that it will never work. The results will probably surprise you.
