Re: Remove Mold on Beach Chair

Perhaps those other parts are an exercise left for OP? I think the OP is looking for techniques and not a finished retouch.

Personally, I would leave the chair as is and add some more real life grubby elements, an old fishing net, a few broken shells, a beer can in the sand, drift wood and etc.. It would add a lot of emotion into the image and contrast of setting.

Re: Remove Mold on Beach Chair

Thank you very much for the compliment. Actually, you will be able to within the next week or so, I have a completely new site Im about to launch with a ton of new content, completely new interface and layout, and the images show up BIG, like you can go full screen big. Im actually having trouble keeping file sizes down enough to hold detail and still have it load with decent speed, but thats besides the point. So Ill post it up when it launches, I have been needing to update my old site for a very long time.

Re: Remove Mold on Beach Chair

Hi I’m a newby, so hope I’m doing this right!

I wanted to reduce the amount of mould visible to stop it being a distraction to the image but not completely remove it and have a perfect chair.
I selected the white stripes then painted over the mould patch with a low opacity brush, then reversed the selection and did the same with the blue. Process took about 1 min, but as I say it’s not perfect.

It’s a lovely image Doug, I look forward to seeing your “fixed” version.

Chillin,
I will need some clarification please. Selecting the green channel is as far as I got. You instruct to "inverse", and I do not know what you are referring to nor how to accomplish this task. Can you provide further instructions regarding this one step please?

Thanks,

Doug

Re: Remove Mold on Beach Chair

Hes either talking about one of two things, how he puts his underwear on in the morning, or using the channels to make the selection and build your mask from. You can load a selection from any of the channels and then select inverse to flop it, then paint away areas to build yourself a mask to be able to drop a color onto and then have it apply only to the area you want. Its basically a refined way of masking it by hand with either the pen or brush tool thats all

Re: Remove Mold on Beach Chair

G: I'm glad you guys have a sense of humor here... but I hope it is the latter of the two.
I will give that a shot, but my working knowledge on channels and masking is non-existent. All my selections are done w/ the basic pallet tools, wand, lasso.

Thanks-

Doug

Re: Remove Mold on Beach Chair

good pic. I think it needs more dramatism (and some color adjustments, etc). I'm too exhausted right now for a proper comemnt.

have a good day!
