  • hair help

    hi everyone!

    long time reader, but for the life of me i can't figure out how to fix the "see through stringy hair" in the attached pic. i've cloned, healed, cut/paste/transformed, and i just can't fix this mess!

    any direction will be greatly, greatly appreciated

      Well, first of all, it's not a "studio" shot. Just some folks kicking back and having fun. Perfection is not called for. :-)

      I assumed you were talking about the lady in black and white so....

      Clone tool is gonna be your best bet. I just zoomed in and cloned from the hair color into the areas that the sun was shining through to fill in the gaps. Also cloned background areas into the hair edges to smooth out the fly aways.

        hey thanks! i tried that and totally blew it, i guess i need more practice. hair always makes me crazy, then the sun almost threw me into an asylum.

          I'd say that gives you all the more reason to burn it.

            How about the smudge tool. Took seconds to do. Probably looks it too.

                  I worked on this in the morning. If I remember correctly, I did a levels adjustment only on the people. Remember doing some burning on the hair and on the lady second from the left, where the hair really had the sun coming through changed that.

                  I really wan't sure which person(S) had the hair problem. If you have a specific question about a specific person or part of the picture, I will be happy to go back and see if I can remember exactly what I did.

                  At the time I did this, I felt that the problem had been resolved and did this just for practice.

                  The original post is on the left; my effort on the right.

                      Help with Hair
                      by Ms Bay
                      Does anyone know how I can "fix" this hairline? As you can see the bangs look more like they are stuck on instead of blending in with the face. The photo was seriously sun damaged and when I tried to repair it, it turned out looking more like a portrait than a picture. Any suggestions...

                      I have a senior gal with hair over the bra strap...she wants the bra strap to go but how do you keep the hair. I am just starting out...I am pulling my hair out..

                      Hello!

                      Would someone please tell me, or direct me to a tutorial, on how to add hair like this child has. To me, it is obvious that it has been added and manipulated.

                      Thanks,

                      Hi there,

                      A couple of friends of mine are morning show hosts on a local radio station--they would like to spoof one of the movie posters for the new Twilight film (http://static.newmoonmovie.org/bdm/i...wn-poster1.jpg for example).

                      The only problem...

                      How to improve this hair? Help!
                      by LunaLuna
                      Hi all!

                      I've been working on this image. It's not finished yet but I think I'm doing a decent job here.

                      I'm having problems with hair, specially in the left side. The hair is tangled and I don't know how to make it look better.

                      Any advice will be very welcome!...
