Exactly what he said. That's why I teach the Apply image method as it gives you the freedom to use any kind of blur.

Re: IHP related question.

Since she was doing a normal split, she has most likely used the 16bit settings outlined here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?th...=1#post9585669

Re: IHP related question.

When you say normal split.(i am still trying to work it out) is it GB+AI?
I followed those steps on this link with 8 bit. two copys. GB + AI then mask and slowly smoothing skin with brush.have to say it looks nice like it looked on black skin the file i was of ebony . PSD. however on the caucasian skin the Natalia's method above in this thread gives a more defined texture look.

Re: IHP related question.

I guess Natalia used "Filter"-"Noise"-"Dust and Scratches" on this one, but the basic recipe is the same:
create two layers, use any filter on the bottom one, use apply image with the settings according to your bit depth on the top one and set it to "Linear Light" blending mode. Which filter you choose to modify the bottom layer is entirely up to you.
Of course you'll also have to use settings depending on your images, so I don't know, why this method should give a more defined look on certain images.
Once the technique itself is completed, you should be back with your original!

Re: IHP related question.

You can find some nice links in this thread that might help: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...ere-start.html

If you have specific questions, I could also do a short video on YouTube if you want :-).

Re: IHP related question.

Thank you Der_W again. You how it works with noob. I am in domain of photo retouching.It is densly packed with info and have to work out what to do with one or another technique. My lack of understanding of basics in advanced level makes it sometimes hard for me understand what you guys telling me repeatedly. I have red that article of a Russian guy on: http://zhur74.livejournal.com/998.html and it shed some light on me.
I suppose i have to post one of my works soon and ask you what is right and what is wrong. by the way would you recommend me any videos regarding fashion retouching from retouchpro library on youtube? What i am looking for is to learn D&B technique, using split frequency, working with hair and changing skin tones for a start. Thank you.

Re: IHP related question.

Very interesting topic. I also have a question about creating a true clips curves to get contrast matching after IHP. I found the recipe
R = S + 2 (C - 128)
in http://zhur74.livejournal.com/998.html
but I do not understand the meaning of value (R- S -C? where is this?). Can you help explain?
