  • pockets glowing through the pants

    Hello

    I've got a problem, there is a picture of man in white striped suit, but on the pants yu can see through the fabric the pockets, its a bit brighter. How do i make it disappear, to look like all the same without damaging the stripes.

    Re: pockets glowing through the pants

    Create a 50% grey layer like so: layer> new layer. In the new layer dialogue box change the mode to 'overlay', opacity 100% and tick the box 'fill with overlay-neutral color (50% gray)'

    Then using the dodge /burn tools set on a low opacity, burn in the lighter bits and dodge the darker bits on this gray layer to make the pocket 'disappear'.

    Hope this helps,
    Anna

      Hmm, I would instead suggest curves.
      ...and a layer mask.

        nudisco,
        Try cut and paste with layer masks to blend the pants.

          Line the pants and shoot again.

            Why make it complicated... Just use the clone tool and set the opacity around 30 percent...Line up on the stripes and blend the white pockets in.

              to not disrupt the lines at all, you cannot use healing brush or clone tool as it moves the pixels rather than playing with the pixels that are already set in place.
              all i did was:
              duplicate the background layer
              select the area around the glowing pocket (do not include any shadows in your selection)
              feather the selection by about 3
              open levels (ctrl+l)
              now instead of adjusting the input levels (top bar) adjust the white slider of the output levels (bottom bar) as it wont make the colours go saturated and it wont look as if they are pixely. you should adjust the output levels until they match the surrounding pant colour.
              do the same for the other pocket
              dodge and burn the remaining line

              and then hopefully your done.
              ill attach my attempt.

                Create a softlight layer, fill with 50% grey. Use the dodge tool set on midtone and around 20% strength. With a tablet, carefully paint away the darker parts. Simple!

                (but you will need that tablet).

                  Dodge/Burn layer
                  by Doug Nelson
                  Dodging and burning can be problematic at best. One alternative method I use occasionally is to create a new layer, set mode to 'multiply' and turn the opacity WAY down, then paint with black and/or white (or gray). I feel it gives me more control, plus it also seems to be more tolerant of errors. And...

                  Hi all

                  Another newbie here! I just wanna say first, what a great site, there certainly is a lot of talent out there. My problem is this photo. I want to make the faces more focused. I've tried unsharpen & other sharpening plug-ins to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Keep up...

                  Help needed understanding these layers.
                  by peejay
                  Can anyone break down these layers into a simple set of instructions? I would love to duplicate this effect but I just dont know enough about PS yet to manage it by myself.
                  TIA

                  Stronger Overlay Blend Mode
                  by galvaros
                  Dear all,

                  how can i make the effect of an overlay blend mode layer stronger, WITHOUT duplicating the corresponding layer? (the layer is already at 100% opacity)

                  My problem is this: an overlay blend mode layer with some blacks and whites in it does darken/lighten the target...

                  Whats the deal with the 50% gray background?
                  by abdul10000
                  I read so much about 50% gray background in this forum, but for whatever reason cannot understand its exact purpose.


                  It seems people use it with blend modes like soft light, overlay, etc for some special effects. For example, I can't understand how its applied to D&B instead...
