Re: how to remove fingerprint

Hi DCobb;
Nice job... but what do I need to do to get the texture of the jacket.

If I can repair this photo, I need to repair the sleeve well enough to allow an enlargement to 11x14. ( or 12x something... not sure atm) without the damaged sleeve being too noticeable.

Hi John_D

I used curves.
Try to make all the image darker, then invert mask and with 5% opactity brush make fingerprint mask. When you get correct luminocity u can add some texture with healing brush.

Re: how to remove fingerprint

John,
This is my try. I used clone, and a bit copy and paste.

Smile Re: how to remove fingerprint

I have to thank you all for sharing your methods and comments. You have been very helpful. After reading your comments and after scanning retouchpro's archives, I gave it a try.

So... how did I do.

I hid the fingerprint using D&B with "highlights" setting. I used clone very little, only on the black spots and a few white spots, and also used levels. I did not use Healing brush at all. I do not like the result of healing brush. Oh, and I added a little noise to the repair area to give a little texture.

I am not sure what I am doing... but I enjoy what I am doing... without your comment and tips though, it may be a lot diferent. :o)

Is there any easier way to do this repair? Is there any other step that I may have missed that could have made the repair better? Thanks again for your comments.

Re: how to remove fingerprint

The healing tool seems to do the job well. It does a nice job on those pesky Corbis watermarks...har har...
