Re: Improving skin... Techniques for the body

Ok the problem with the high-pass are the transitions in the skin, so far so so good. I mean, it's good to even the skin out, but the shadow and edges becomes blurred.

Inverting the high-pass filter and blur it's definitely not the same as creating 2 Layers one high-pass and one normal Layer and blur the normal Layer. Because then of course you will destroy pixels. If you blur the highpass- layer just a bit to get smoother transitions you wont affect the skin texture, because there isn't (assuming that you have used a wider radius for the filter).

Insensitive you are right, not everyone can spend that much for a retouched image.

What is you procederure Baglady? Do you use a few curve layers like Amy Dresser do or do you use only one Grey layer to do the D&B for the whole image?

Prices should be based on local market rates, your capabilities and experience.

Blurring the high pass layer is the same thing as creating one blurred layer and one high pass layer above... By blurring the high pass layer, you're just doing it in one step. Inverting the high pass layer blurs even more.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!

Mask out undesired effects.
