  • High-Pass problem

    I masked out the skin and saved it as Alpha channel and applied a lens blur on it. After applying multiple high-pass to my image I get strange colour tone on the skin edges...dark colour seem to bleed on to the skin.

    How do I fix this?

    Thanks kindly

    The problem is probably that you didn't desaturated high-pass layers. After sharpening with high-pass, especially with higher radius settings strange coloration will appear. So after you apply high-pass, desaturate the layer. The easiest way would be ctrl+shift+u on windows. If you still have the problem, than I would need more information about the process so I could try to find where is the problem.

      Desaturating still doesn't do it.

        No worries MilanS! I finally figured it out after hours and hours of trials and errors...after 100 views and only 1 response I figured I rather roll up my sleeves....

        ...alot of experimentions with the opacities is all it took!

          As I responded in my message, you're doing the "degrunge" (spelling?) technique not a high pass sharpening, the technique is intended for the skin not edges seems like you're painting with a brush with 100% opacity, you can do 2 things
          1 use smaller values for the technique that way the edges aren't as blured (spelling?)
          2 don't use a brush with that much opacity, use less and try to do some Dodge & Burn tequnique if you have too much problems in the edges

            Patchy skin problem
            by irishblue
            Hi there, I seem to have this problem with patchy skin as attached. I have tried blurring it with gaussian blur or simply healing brushing it. However both result in rather blurry images that loses the natural skin texture. How would you guys approach images as such while keeping the skin still looking...

            Bending problem
            by Isedo
            Hi, how you solve the bending problem? Please do not talk about noise and all the post stuff. I mean really, like you approach an image and work without bending?

            I'm retouching a car and I'm repainting the doors and after 5-6 gradients there is bending everywhere. I hate this thing because...
