Re: Question to "High pass sucks" technique

Chiilin, you might be better off clipping a Blank layer to the HF linear light layer and use the eraser if it is needed. Another good option is to forget about a 3rd layer but instead create a layer group of the 2 split layers and just add a layer mask to the folder. Assuming you still have your underlying layers or BG, they will pass thru everywhere the mask has not been painted black. There are probably a couple of other ways. All that being said, I find in that for the type of healing done on the HF layer that you rarely make mistakes and when you do they are easy to fix. Its nice having a safety net for everything you do in a retouch but if you work on large 16 bit files, every additional full pixel layer bloats the file and slows down the processing considerably.
Regards, Murray

Yes you're right, the file gets considerably larger, but I don't like the thought of not having easy way out

Thanks Murray
