Re: How to remove hairs on women face?

Thanks for the advice,

However I have noticed that I could remove some of hair little by little using Healing Brush in HF option bar selected to Current Layer but when I tried to remove all of them by holding down healing brush and move back/forward, the new skin look awnful (unmatched, it kill the texture). Any tips?

Another question when creating 2 layers Low and High, Is there a way to create a middle of layer between them just like in the 1st tutorial to get more control of it?

Sorry about the bad link. It is now fixed.

I think you would have to replace the texture altogether.

Re: How to remove hairs on women face?

Here's I did so far using Healing brush tool (small brush 15px) but it doesn't seem to blend all together well.

Here's what I really mean:

Is there a way to fix that issue?

Re: How to remove hairs on women face?

Qpixo, if you analyse this image, it has a very large area where you need to replace all the texture because the texture that exists is only hair. That is not usually the case but for this image you will need a large size brush like around 80 px. I worked on your circular area as an example. I healed the bottom of the circle with a sample from the bottom of the neck and I healed the top of the circle with a sample from near the top of her cheek. I even stamped a section of her lip to show you that on the HF layer you can heal from almost anywhere and with the healing brush the texture blends in retaining luminosity. Unfortunately your cropped image does not permit me to sample from areas where I would normally find good texture.
As for other layers, there are a number of layers you can insert.
You can add a blank layer above the Low layer and paint on it to make color adjustments without affecting texture. You can add a layer above the low layer and heal on it to fix large patches which were not protected as texture in the high layer.
I recommend you try to gring through that ModelMayhem thread because there are other useful suggestions. I would also recommend you do a search here at RP for Frequency Separations and you will find some other useful info.
I hope this helps,
Regards, Murray

Re: How to remove hairs on women face?

Mistermonday,

After several tries which killed me I admit.

Here is my latest of removing hair on face:

Before:

Now:

Still a lot of work to do, does it look better than before?

Wink Re: How to remove hairs on women face?

I find myself having to do this very often.

For hairs lighter than the skin, create a layer and set it to darken...
Then either clone from an area sampled right next to the hairs (even a hairy part could work), or use the paint brush and sample the color of the area between hairs. Then brush over the light hairs.

This will affect, and darken, only areas lighter than what you sampled from. Works fairly well...

For hairs darker than the skin, you can do this the same way but use a layer set to lighten instead.

I don't know what method you have used but for myself I use separation frequency which works well once you know how to use correctly.

Qpixo, yes looks much better. The technique gets easier and more effective as you practice.
