  • Clone stamping detail covering the face.

    Hello,
    I'm having trouble with this photo that I took for a friends family shoot. I really love the picture however there's a lace covering the face of the central figure that I tried to edit out using the clone stamp tool. However because its such fine detail and it's over the mouth i'm struggling to get a clean retouch of the face.

    If anyone can give me any tips they would be much appreciated! I'm using photoshop Cs5 and the picture is attached.

    Much thanks,
    James

        I'd use use patches of 'good' skin and apply them through a layer mask that broadly corresponds to the shape of the cord. Feather the mask to avoid a 'stripe'. Why not post a larger file of just the offending area so we can see the detail.

          Hello Repairman, thanks for your reply i'm about to try what you recommended and hopefully i'll have some success with it.

          I was struggling to upload a decent sized image because of the upload restriction of 100k but i've cropped it so you can see the detail... Is this any better?

          Thanks.

            Here it is - the teeth take time but all very do-able. Having made a jpeg of a jpeg it's not great rez but I'll send you a tiff by PM if you like.

              My goodness that's amazing! Thanks very much I can't believe how well that has turned out. A Tiff would be great if it isn't too much hassle?

              I don't really understand Retouch pro, what do you get out of this?

                  Repairman you've inspired me - if only we all took on that philosophy the world would be a different place. Thank you very very much for your time and help.

                          Cheers guys. An intriguing pose - you managed to catch everyone mid jump. Have you made other changes to the image?

                            Hey Repairman, I didn't do much else to the picture - I created a copy of the layer and changed the blending mode (I can't remember what to) then lowered the opacity which boosted the contrast and made it a bit more poppy. To be honest my Photoshop skills aren't the best, need to find some good tutorials.

                              by Jannz
                              I usually work with the clone tool and the healing tool when working on old photos but it is just not working with this old photo. I would like to at least get the face looking correct. I even tried using Portrait Professional but it didn't seem to like working on the black and white photo.
