  • How to repair hair?

    Did some extraction using select color range, and I damaged the hair in the process by removing some bits in the central area. I want to repair the hair now but the cloning brush gives a patchy look.

    I've been thinking of using hair brushes as a pattern stamp as I've found some that have similar shape. Thing is, how would I use them this way? Highlighted hair has distinct streaks, but when I use the hair brush, after I paint in 1 color and switch to another and repaint, it just looks like 2 flat pieces of paper hair overlaid on top of each other.

    Any suggestions?

      Assuming you still have the original image you can clone or cut and paste from there.

        It depends a lot, but often instead of using the clone tool, the heal tool set to replace mode can work well.

          Any of you guys who work on hair often, i applaud you. I know Theveed was mentioning not too long ago, that he had a lot of experience with it.

          i've been helping out on a campaign for a major hair product, and it's by far the worst thing to work on. After all the careful cloning, i...
