All the images are viewable!! Congratulations. While comparing the images when using selections and blend-if, it looks to me that the noise in the hair and the backs of the subjects in the background is a little better than the noise in the blend-if. But the sweater noise looks better in the blend-if image. Nevertheless, another great tutorial! Thanks for sharing your brain with us. I guess I'll have to try NeatImage after all.

... It is always a matter of preferences ... and I actually left the 'Blend If' version a bit smoother on purpose ...
Fact is ... with the Blend if, I could have matched the other version exactly working simultaneously and yet separately on highlights and shadows in one go!

Thanks Flora (and Roger) for a great insight into the Blend If option. Not sure I got it all on first reading, but I'm definitely going to be having a play with this one.

JustChecking, Gary,

...Thank you so much for your great feedback!!

I'm actually thinking of changing it.... Once you get the hang of it, 'Blend If' is very, very versatile and quite easy to use ....

I've cut a few corners in my tutorial because Roger had already done such a complete and excellent job with his ... But I think I'll have to explain step by step, how, for instance, by simply using Blend If, you can make such a complex selection (see attachment), without any mask at all!
