Re: RP LIVE - Chris Tarantino redo (rebroadcast)

Very informative. I would love an entire Tutorial on Custom Filters, and understanding the algorithms on a higher level. I am also interested in learning the glamour/ fashion portion of retouching, can retouch pro hire anyone to teach such? I am a retouch junkie, I do this for a living and I want to know everything!

Two sharpening questions for Chris ...

Last night was the 2nd time around for me for the broadcast - I learned a huge amount more by seeing it twice and taking the time to practice the techniques in between. So much made more sense last night, so thanks again!

I have a couple of questions for you about the sharpening you used:

1. The image was fairly sharp to start with. Did you use some kind of post-scanning "capture sharpening" to get it to that stage, or is that how the image came off the scanner?

2. Something I noticed in the re-broadcast that I didn't notice in the original: unless I was seeing things, the group/smart object you used to control the sharpening (i.e. the two custom filters) were really low in the layers stack - just above the background layer in fact. Perhaps I was just tired and my eyes were crossed, but I am more used to the sharpening layer being at the very top of the layers stack i.e. it's the last thing applied. Am I mis-understanding something?

There was no sharpening done on the scan. The conversion I came up with to go from a scanned negative to a positive image takes into consideration apparent sharpness. Usually thats all any image needs, but occasionally a little more needs to be done.

You noticed correctly. The custom filters are on the retouched layer of the image. I prefer that as if any further retouching needs to be done I can see where it can be effected by the sharpening.

Of course the biggest reason is to be able to undo the sharpening at any time. Or adjust. Adjusting a stamped up layer is a bit difficult to do. Taking the stamped up layer off is easy, but then you have to remember to do it and also the settings that you first used.

Re: RP LIVE - Chris Tarantino redo (rebroadcast)

I would kindly appreciate this if there is a rebroadcast of this again. I missed all three of these because my time zone is PST (and usually it's earlier here) and I go to school during daytime on weekdays. If it were broadcast in something like 5 pm PST that would be greatly appreciated.
