Re: Smoothing wrinkles in a coat

When using the split technique it's possible to keep the texture (fine lines in the cloth on my example) as still remove any unwanted creases. If you want me to PM you with an outline of how to do it I would be glad to.

2 Mike
Nice, I've never tried to use split technique for this, but I'll definitely try it

Yes, frequency split works great for this and inverted high pass is good too. When using the split, you can select the wrinkled parts from the "low" layer, copy the selection to a new layer and blur it further to smooth the wrinkle. You can even put the IHP layer between the low and the high freq in order to preserve the fabric texture.

Haha! Yes, how many time have I told someone it would have been cheaper if they had just bothered to pull those hairs off of her face before they snapped the photo!

Re: Smoothing wrinkles in a coat

I did a screencast showing some techniques that could be used - it was awhile back, and I would do the HF a bit different now, but still it works.

this is meant to give a rough idea only.

Re: Smoothing wrinkles in a coat

Very interesting video Shift.

I know it's supposed to be just a rough idea but would you mind explaining the settings you used to create the High frequency layer, blend modes ect.
Also I noticed you used the patch tool with what looked like a white pattern. Is that just a solid white color?

Cheers
