  • Removing wig net/ realistic hairline

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on a portrait which will be printed A3.

    As you can see in the image attached, the netting of the wig is very visible and the hairline looks really fake.

    What are your suggestions for removing the netting and evening out the hair parting?

    Many thanks!

    Clone some of the hair into the area where the netting shows in the part and also burn that area to make it darker.

      Case in point.... a quick clone and's not perfect but better.

        You'll end up doing something similar to Wolfman's suggestion, but I strongly suggest you gather reference images. They'll help you make a realistic judgement if something doesn't feel quite right.

          I agree suggestion was only to fix the netting problem....certainly it could be made to look more realistic than what I produced....just a starting point.

            When I said you'll do something similar, I meant that it might vary slightly in strategy. I was mainly adding on to what you said to include the need for reference. Otherwise depending on the experience of the person asking, they may just try to mimic and wonder what's off.

              Removing Arm Hair
              by transoptic
              Hey I have some photos with a very pretty model but she is slightly olive skinned with some dark arm hair.

              Is there a NON BLUR method to fix this?

              Can I somehow select the hairs with some kind of channel calculations?

              removing wrinkles in jacket
              by jlv212
              This is my first attempt at retouching b/w photos and am having a particularly hard time getting some of the wrinkles out of this jacket arm without it looking horribly bad--have tried everything I can think of. The Katrin Eismann example of the digital seamstress doesn't really work in this situation....

              Removing clear tape
              by htown
              I was given a drawing (painting) that a friend of mine wanted me to shoot and touchup. Several years ago, the drawing got a whole punched through it so he taped it back with clear tape. here is a section of it and you can see where the tape is. How can I touch this up and make the tape disappear? ...

              by susanfun
              Hi, I have attached a photo that contains an Orb like circle on the head of one guy. Is there a simple solution to cover or remove this?
              Thank you, Susan
