tried it.
they overuse it in the TV-newspapers and some ads.
it looks artificial. maybe using it and decreasing the kodak-layer to 20% ?

Image from my Website

Tahir...

I see that you are using an image from my site.

Also come clean... you are not using Photoshop but another piece of software - why the big secret??

C'mon Tahir - spill the beans

Tahir,

I think Shelby has made an interesting observation; I'd very much like to know what tools you are using to get a result like that in just 5 minutes (if you're not using PS and Ro's de-grunge technique, or something very similar).

I'm also curious as to why you haven't revealed your technique in any of your posts. I guess if you wanna keep it a secret that's fine, but I'm pretty sure there are a lot of members who would be very interested to know what the process is.

P.S. Shelby - I can't get to your website - I just get re-directed to Pipex - thought you might want to know.

Tahir's Skin

Well Tahir

I am glad that you have admitted that it is supposed to look plastic like. You have succeeded remarkably well. Whether you used a seperate piece of software as Shelby has suggested is your secret, although it is definetly achievable as you have said without cloning etc. in Photoshop. Scriptable even.
As many of you have seen from previous posts I do everything pixel by pixel. But I don't eliminate the need for cloning or healing.

Back to Pure's original frustration, you need to take the time that is needed to get the job done right. On my fashion and Beauty retouching I typically take at least 3 hours for skin work. My site www.christarantino.com is still in the works but should be up next week with some great examples of before and after.

Deadlines do need to be met. Understood. But you need to let the client, whether a photographer or a studio, know what a realistic time is truly going to be for the quality they are expecting. I have found that if you stick to that deadline and deliver the results then you have found a returning client.

Regards and good luck!

Chris

Re: Professional Ret. Techniques in commercials

It is not actually what high end clients would want anyways. I did get PM regarding this software but i really dont think anything can over take Photoshop. Perhaps for the low end stuff it would be ok. It is something they have developed in Asia.
