skin of child


I need to retouch a child, and I've got porblem with skin. I used median to soft skin, and after this I added highpass filter to highlight features of the face. On computer it's look fine, but after print my employer said that face is unsharp.

I don't have a time for d&b, ( I'm not eaven certain, that I should touch this skin 'casue skin of young child is naturally soft )

I need only recipe for soft & sharp skin.

Have U got any ideas how to do that ?

Re: skin of child

well.. d&b would work perfectrly here. but I'm not sure that you need to spend that much time here. it's just light up that areas where she has blemishes.

Re: skin of child

Jaroslav, I would say that your customer is right. The image has "Digital Softness" which is typically what you get from a digital camera. A small amount of Smart Sharpen or unsharp mask will bring it back to what the human eye sees. An isolated color selection using a Hue/ Sat adj layer with the Color Range masking option can attentaute the red marks. Then if you want the skin to have a softer look you can apply a noise filter like noiseware to it or use one of the many other techniques to soften skin.
Sample below is sharpened only with adj of the red spots.
Regards, Murray
