Re: Dbl-chins, sagging jowels, flabby bellies

Shift, I have a dumb question about your video. You made a selection with the lasso tool over the wrinkle area, feathered it and then choose the patch tool. You then choose fill with pattern and removed the wrinkle on the low frequency layer, but I didn't see you define a pattern. Did you define a pattern earlier, before you started recording from a selection on the low frequency layer or did I miss something. Thanks a lot.

Re: Dbl-chins, sagging jowels, flabby bellies

the pattern is pure white.
So make a new grayscale doc, 20x20 px or something like that.
Fill with white, save as a pattern.
Its a technique I came up with a couple of years ago, to patch an area, where the patch has a smooth transition from all edges to the centre.
It has nothing to do with the specific image.

Make sense?

Re: wrinkle removal screencast

Thank you. The video was really helpful. I've used all the tools in one way or another but putting them all together end-to-end helps a ton. I'll want to watch it a couple more times

The screencast is here (done a little roughly):

I know you didn't ask for a wrinkle removal technique, but I thought since I already started in this thread, I'd link it here.

Upon reading this thread: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...-question.html
I realised my method for sampling/patching on the HF layer in the screencast was not as flexible as it could have been. Instead of filling a section of the HF layer with 50% gray, I should have set the HF's blending mode to 'normal', placed it in a group with blending mode set to linear light, then dupe a patch and tweak as necessary. see the layer stack below. Sorry to have complicated things.
