  • Cleaning one color uniform background ?

    Hello there,

    I have to clean the background of a 100+ images and I am looking for best way to approach this.
    I am attaching a simple image of what I do know , but I do not like the results very much. Do you have an idea how I could get more uniform background?

    What I do is cleaning the bigger uneven parts with Patch tool, then run Median filter on separate layer and add noise. Finally, I mask out the person.

    After running quick retouching action on the legs, I used a second split frequency action to correct the background.

      I use Dust and Scratches filter or plugin called Portraiture to do this. Portraiture is similar to the split frequency action. What I like about it is that it doesnt blur the edges of the person (like gaussian blur etc.).

        Can this be rescued?

        I think the problem should be obvious - is there any way to bring out the statues and/or de-emphasise the background? I should say that I had pretty much Hobson's choice in the positioning and timing of this shot - passing through early afternoon (harsh light) and not much...

        This seems like an easy task ... but I just cannot get it right.

        Would you mind taking your shots and posting results/ideas. I am not asking for free work, just love to see a few ideas and some strategies:

        I'm having a hard time getting a consistent, non "splotchy" background on this picture. I'm hoping someone can provide some instruction on how I could go about replacing the background, or retouching it.

        uniform background and printing

        I'm new here - I've been lurking and learning for a while in this great forum. I could use some advice with an image I'm working on.

        I've already done major repair work on this image, but I'm stuck with the background:

        What can I do to the background...

        How do I smooth out my background?
        by hongkongblue
        Hey guys,

        Having an issue with getting a nice smooth background on my portraits. For my workflow, I mask in a gaussian blur filter at 89 radius, but I obviously can't get to close to the edges of my subject or I will get that bleeding blur from them. How do I do this properly? ...
