  • Glare reduction (not glasses)

    At last, a photo of me that I like, but it's flawed. I've tried everything in PS Elements, but have run out of patience! Could someone advise me how to get rid of the glare? Thank you in anticipation xxx Anjie

      .. couldn't agree more!!! A link to a higher resolution picture is very, very welcome, but please, post one here too so that people can see and learn from this Thread even when the link won't work anymore...

      (links to step-by-step instructions on attaching files and resizing images for RetouchPRO right under my signature..)

      In the meantime, you can have a look at this Thread dealing with the same problem..

          Levels adjustments. Replaced her right eye with her left eye and did some cloning. Also some cut and paste with hair. Then drew in some hair.

            .... that makes the two of us ... 'Glare reduction (not glasses)' ... sorry Anjie!

            What I did with your picture...

            • Levels Adjustment Layer to fix the colours a bit.

            • Created a blank Layer on top of the Levels A.L. set its Mode to 'Color' and using a soft (fuzzy) brush, sampled from surrounding areas and painted over the faded (glare) areas.

            • Duplicated the 'Color' Layer twice setting the Mode of the duplicates to Soft Light (decreased the Opacity of the top one until I was satisfied with the result).

            • Used the Heal brush to even out the borders between corrections and the rest of the image.

            • Used a Levels A.L. to increase contrast on a selection of the 'glare' area.

            After this, it's up to you to decide how much or how little you want to do with this picture..

            (Attachment 1) my result just after these procedures.
            (Attachment 2) my final result.

                Tried a more nocturnal look.

                Set colours with curves. Then a curve to bring the highlight down. History brush the curve result onto the spot. Clone around to blend it in. Cloned in corner or eye.

                Painted a little hair in the light spot That's mostly it.

                My mascara work won't win prizes.

                    Hey,

                    I'm a newbie and was hoping someone could help me get rid of the glare on the right eye? I tried copying the good eye but wasn't able to match the tone around the new area.

                    How to reduce glare on glasses
                    by Mona
                    Hello,

                    I'm trying to digitally reduce glare on glasses. Are there any tutorials out there (for any program) that someone can point me to?

                    Thanks!
