First of all thank you very much!

I looked at your fine retouching and at 100% I saw very little texture left, even at 200% it is a little more noticable but still not bad, so I would be inclined to leave it as is.

Hi everybody,


Thank you so much for your kindness!

Great, great job!!

But....I can still see some of the 'blasted' pattern lines in the darker parts of her face...

What I would try is duplicate the background twice:
  • run the first duplicate throught Noise Ninja with stronger settings,
  • for the second duplicate (on top), use the settings you used here.
  • Create a Layer mask for the 'softer settings' (top) Layer and, with a soft black brush (Opacity 20-40%), paint over the pattern that can still be decreased without loss of too many details ...

To bring back some of the deatils in her hair, with the help of a Layer Mask, I partially uncovered the hair from the original background and used the Smudge Tool to help hide the pattern...

Please let me know if it works for you....
