Its a Divx codic. You have to go to divx.com and download the FREE player. It will install the codex for all your players.

I know this will work on windows but that should help.

hope it helps a bit for those who wanted to see how it's done.
Help. I cannot figure out what to do to download the video from the megapload site. What todo?

Re: d&b tutorial download

I really had my eyes opened to the amount of work involved in the D&B retouch, I need to work out the set up for the tools group layer2 and layer3. The D&B is pretty straight forward but wasn't sure what the layer4 in the group2 below the D&B's purpose?

Click on the link and it will take you to the web site. You have to enter the 3 letter code (caps sensitive) in the text box next to it.

The next page will show you a premium or free option. You should see a 25 second countdown under the free. Once it is done with the countdown, click the free download at the bottom where the countdown was.

Click save and put it somewhere you can find. Desktop would be the easiest.

Then wait till it’s done downloading. Open the file and choose a place to extract, again desktop is the easiest.

In the Tools group layer 2 = new layer fill with black blending mode color
Layer 3 = new layer fill with black blending modes overlay and soft light only for viewing purpose
The Layer 4 under The D&B layers is The healing layer used to remove the spots or big marks that will be tedious doing it with D&B technic using clone or healing brushes.


Hope it helps

Re: d&b tutorial download

I just watched the first half of it but I am a little confused by the layer group 'tools'. Is it used to make it more obvious where to dodge and where to burn? What is the idea/theory behind it? All I saw is a layer set to blend mode = overlay.

You are correct, it is used to more easily see blemishes... look below for an example (Its a 100% crop from a left cheek, corrected with only D&B).

Its a simpler version of a Curves layer with an "s" curve and desaturate (last picture). The theory is that the black, overlay (blending mode) makes the darks darker and the black, color (blending mode) makes the highlights easier to see and makes the picture B&W.
