        Hi Doug.

        I used the clone tool and healing brush mostly to cover most of the facial damage, noise removal to soften then separate curves and selective colour adjustments for skin tones. I selected the subject and placed her overtop of a new BG layer and used a couple of pattern layers in soft light mode to give it an aged effect.
        Looking at it again, I did not pay enough attention to the selection and lighting of her face and deformed her smile a bit accordingly. oops.

        Cheers.

              • Separated and mixed colour channels to get the best greyscale possible (saved a colour copy);
              • Made three frequency separation layers and restored each, er, seperately;
              • General clean-up;
              • Cleaned up the colours in the colour copy and put them back in.

              (about an hour and a half)

                        Have a look around and you'll find many people applying frequency separation to retouching (faces, usually) because it allows you divide up the image into high frequency parts (i.e. pores and hairs) and low frequency parts (general face shape).

                        For restoration work the frequency separation may help you to identify what is due to noise and dirt and what is from the original image.

                        No quick and easy way to learn. I've been in computer imaging since the TRS-80! (might be before your time!)

                          LOL @ byRo... I started with a CoCo1 and wrote all my programs from color computer magazine and saved them on a cassette tape. I was thrilled to upgraded to a CoCo3 and could do everything the big boys could... albeit a bit slower... Times have definitely changed

                              How to fix this?
                              by johnnycorcoran
                              I tried to make her skin clear like a doll skin/smooth skin and colour balance.I gave up hope.

                              Im putting it back from the start and hope you have any tips for me how to fix her blackheads and colour balance right.

                              Cheers!

                              Help with neck and cleavage
                              by Canna W
                              I do a lot of low-end retouching, working with quite small images, and aiming for 'good enough' in an hour or so. I hope it's okay to bring such crude work to Retouch Pro.

                              Anyway, I got really stuck with this one. The girl wanted the hair removed from her neck and chest (quite understandable!)...

                              Shiny Face
                              by mustangstacey
                              This is my little sister's prom picture. Her face is super shiny. I have tried using the blur tool, and creating a new layer and working with the shadows and multiply but I can't get the shiny-ness to go away....

                              by frommels
                              Hi,
                              I would greatly appreciate any suggestions and help with the sun damaged skin of the model. She is in her early 40s and a great versatile model, but has a considerable sun damage from her chin down. Is there anything that can be done?

                              Thank you for your time. Luba...

                              by cate_55
                              Wondered if anyone could help with this photo. I haven't started working on it yet. It has mold bits etc. But I wanted to know how to work on getting her facial structure and the right shoulder - badly damaged in wet.

                              Thanks
