  • Surface uniformisation

    Hi everyone, I mostly take architectural photographs and I regularly stumble upon one problem when I have to deal with with wall surfaces that are not uniform due to aging, tags, moisture, cracks...

    On the picture below you can see what I am talking about on the red surface, old tags, new tags, moisture, dog pee. Usually I deal with native Photoshop tools as healing brush, patch but here, and particularly on the "washed out white surface", it is difficult to obtain a nice result with those tools.

    I also tried to apply a red layer and I have tested different fusion modes but still with no success.

    Any idea on how to deal with this kind of situation and how to uniformise the surface and at the same time to conserve the "grain" of the material and the original lighting ?

    Thanks a lot !

    Just one thing to help the forum... If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described in this thread:
    (Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images..)
    The save for web function in the latest Photoshop is hidden under File>Export>Save for web (legacy)

    This thread explains (How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads )

    If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread,(as you did here.... but please link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload) also, always please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).

      After a recent visit to the UK to meet ailing folk, I have charged myself with archiving a pretty vast trove of photos - some going back to the late 1800s. I have completed the scanning stage (using a Canon 220 at its highest resolution), so we have everything digitized. A lot of the...
