  • need tips on wrinkled shirts w/ patterns

    Just as the title says, how do i retouch a shirt with wrinkles but more specifically one with patterns on it. Does anyone have any good tips on this? Preferably something that can not take up so much time, if possible. ive attached an image to demonstrate an example of what i mean.

    Well, that would ruin my day! I usually make up a 'clean' patch of material from the scraps available and then distort and merge them in to the surrounding areas. This transition from the new retouched area to the existing 'good' bits are the key to a good result. You have to contend with weave texture, seams, button holes and subtle tonal changes which just eat up the hours. I don't know any quick fixes that give commercially acceptable results.

      yes i fear that much as well. I was just trying to see if there was a short cut of some kind. Maybe something that someone knows as im still new at retouching on the commercial level. Thanks for the reply though much appreciated.

        I would agree with Repairman on this. Find a clean patch and then warp and distort. I've been working on these fixes for a few years and have yet on come across a shortcut.

          thanks, i was working on duplicating clean patches and then making one clean version of it which i could then loop but as i did that, i realized this is taking just as long as the other one...very challenging indeed.

            Water-damaged photo - tips and techniques please?
            by sulayman
            The dapper gent below is my late grandfather. I was hoping to restore and reprint the photo and frame it for my grandmother as a gift for her. Thing is, my restoration skills leave much to be desired and I was hoping that I might be able to get some tips and suggestions on how to tackle this.
