What's the best technique to deal with this img ?

I have shot some images for a client brochure and everything went fine until this morning when he calls me and asks me to remove all the wrinkles in the leather as in the image posted.

I was wondering what would be the best way to get rid of all the wrinkles and irregularities in the leather ? As there are so many images, I need something quick and efficient.

Hi,

I am not sure if the healing brush is the best tool/technique, but it works. I have done very rough and quick job with the mentioned tool and the result could be acceptable, see the attachment.

Working with uncompressed file would be useful.

Have a nice day

Martin

The best way would take the longest. One option would be to frequemcy split the image using a very low radius to isolate the fine texture of the leather. Then heal or degrunge the low frequency layer. Sample attached.
There are other methods but this is one that is relatively fast and still maintains a reasonable texture.

I can't do that as very few of them are shot at the same angle and most of them are different colors. Anyway, I'd like to try out the technique mistermonday mentioned, care to explain ?

Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it.

Murray was referring to the method mentioned here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=439098

There are also numerous videos and actions in the thread (beginning and end) that'll provide you with the most important information. But I'd suggest to read its entirety.

Re: What's the best technique to deal with this im

First of all thanks for the help guys. The frequency technique looks like it gives great results. I tried the action but couldn't find anywhere on the page the amount of blur I need to add in the blur box. The action also resulted in two layers which if transferred to PS make no difference.

Can any of you that tried the technique please help me with the specifics ?

I have also uploaded the full-rez image on my web page for anyone that wants to try playing with it.
