Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

wow the effect is really nice. in this example it it of course too much but going down with the opacity is not a big problem. did you just copied the one red channel and applied it on screen modus?

@Linkin
Yes that's the way I did it! I ended up adding a quick 'n dirty mask to reveal the original red of the lips some red in the hair and the makeup of the eyes. Five minutes work

@amica999
Thank you very much for the helpful translation link. I didn´t even know such a needfull thing existed

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

Took a while, but its close. Picture is from an old thread from RTP.

The its not B&W, its peach-ish. I used my own version of what Mandos did. I chose to darken the shadows as the example pictures also did.

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

I am pretty impressed by Tareqs pic as well. How did you get there? Can´t be only highpass and sharpening?

Cheers Mandos

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

OK friends,

First of all i didn't use highpass at all, in fact i don't like the effect of highpass.

OK, i will tell you what i did but not sure exactly what i did completely.

1. Duplicate or create new layer
2. Desaturate the photo by any way you choose [Desaturation, B&W, Channel Mixer,...]
3. Change the layer mode to Overlay
4. Play with Opacity, good between 60-80%
I like the effect in this level, but you can do more if you want
5. Repeat the above steps if you want more, if enough then go move to following steps
6. Play with curves and levels and contrast to add more punch for details and also to balance the exposure little bit maybe
7. You can add Shadows/Highlights to above step for more option
8. If details are too much, then i use Noise Reduction, with that i achieve 2 things:
a- Eliminate Noise if shown.
b- Reduce the details on the face.
9. If the details are good enough without noise reduction and you want to add more then do the opposite, add Sharpness t a limit to bring some details as you want.

10. Last step [Can't remember if i use this step as last or after step 4, just you can try both ways] i go to Hue/Saturation, then i reduce the saturation of Master to -50 for overall, then i can play with Red channel to reduce the reddish cast on the face, i can see yellowish as well, but you can play with any separate color channel in Saturation option.


Try that and tell me, because i am not good in Photoshop, some can try with dodge&burn, maybe some can use Layer masks for more accuracy, do whatever you can and please tell me, i want to learn as well.

Good luck!
