  • Skin obsessed !

    I am interested in achieving the skin texture in the photo below. It looks like another texture was applied in a mask then that texture run through USM.. I don't think its the high-pass blur thing. The texture is too uniform to be the real skin...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated !

    i dont think a false texture was added...looks more like the over sharpening is giving that illusion.

        So you think its just the normal work up on a separate layer filled with 50 % grey then that layer duplicated then sharpened with a high radius in USM ?

        Do you think noise and emboss noise was done before the sharpening ? I have never been close to the effect. Not sure I want it but curious..

          It looks to me that they blended a constrasted grain over the skin to match the pores

            I think noise was added.
            If you check the lips out the same texure is there and does not look normal.

              I've taken pictures of leather objects (purse, pillow, chair, etc.) and used it for texturing to get this effect.

                How do you apply the layer mask to the skin ? It must be greyscale to avoid the leather color..

                    I could be wrong but...

                    It looks like when the photo was taken that a ISO setting was used. There are several plugins that you can use in photoshop to simulate ISO settings, try a google search.

                    Here's a photo that I played with on another forum. I used the free OptikVerve plugin to simulate a higher ISO setting. I also have done some D&B which is probably obvious.

                      That noise/grain was definitely added in PS. That consensus came straight form Gavin O'neils mouth. He mentioned that he does that with images he puts on low resolution online. Calls it his .jpg compression surgery

                        this is definetly blurred and then added texture... did you try with texturizer?... load this texture. i always add texture depending of the size of the print.

                                How to retain skin texture when down-rezzing?
                                by feppe
                                I have portraits which are retouched with good skin texture in full-resolution and printed versions. But when I down-rezz to web size, the texture is obliterated. How do you retain, or get back the skin texture?

                                It's my first post on this forum because for the last couple of years I thought my retouching techniques suits me well but then I took this photo and the nightmare has started. The picture below shows the skin condition AFTER the healing brush and frequency separation...
