Basically it is this technique derived from this thread on MM - high pass sucks. I think a few pages in someone comes up with this technique. It uses that frequency seperation thing which is good for doing initial healing work.

The method 2 was actually one from that Jessica Lowe tutorial she done recently. Up close it looks nice but that uses surface blur (where as method 1 uses gaussian). I think the surface blur gives too smooth/plasticy an effect. I see this type of smoothness more in child pageant type pics so maybe it's not suitable for this kind of person.

I think it gives a nice starting point from which you can then do d&b at pixel level. Im going to do that tonight and will post back once done but I think that will take me a few days given I can only do it after work each day. :-(

Once done if anyone wants the psd let me know and I can upload to somewhere.

I have read the tutorial "HP sucks and Solution" , but I don't know what should I do with those 2 resultant layers, how to use them. Could you enlight me with that?

Is there any thread on here similar to this?
