    replied to Restoring an old photograph.
    Re: Restoring an old photograph.

    This is an excellent tutorial. A lot of people neglect these steps because they're unaware of them. Retouching can't be done properly without knowing how to do this, so anyone who's thinking of learning retouching, or correcting scans, or almost anything...

    Re: Need Help Retouching Wife

    The bad news is this picture is not going to be able to handle much of anything you have in mind. The location of the subject relative to the lighting will create this problem.
    Besides the lighting problem, the health of the photo is poor, as you...

    replied to Help with B/W portrait
    Roger had some really interesting things to say about the blend mode changes, and while I haven't used that in quite this context, it is a rather peculiar thing about photoshop. What Roger had to say is also an interesting technique to boost saturation to, as he says, really garish levels, but almost...

    replied to Hair highlights
    The really easy way is to just paint the hair in and use blend modes. You'll have a lot of control doing it that way.

    For example, open a pic of someone's hair in ps, then sample its colour - if you wanted something which would be somewhat similar to the base colour of the person's hair,...

    Jason,

    One of the easy ways to get this effect, at least the portion of the image of the foliage in the foreground, is to use gaussian blur, then after you've applied filter, go to Edit>fade filter and fade gaussian blur in darken mode. It's important to make sure you're fading the...

  • Hi,

    The crazy thing is, when I go back to the saved file to open it, photoshop has in fact saved it as a jpeg file but just added the wrong file extension. I know this, 'cos it doesn't recognise it as a .psd file, but if I go back and manually change the file extension to .jpg in windows...

    replied to Nose Techniques
    Hi,

    Try making a loose selection around his nose, making sure to make the selection big enough otherwise once you shrink his nose in the next step you'll end up with portions of his current nose exposed underneath the selection. So basically you want to select the nose + areas of neutral...

    replied to enviroment
    Hi,

    You don't need a filter for this. Just draw a circle with the selection tool, then fill it with a colour of some sort, then free transform the circle and change the blend mode. The person who put this together also added shadows at the bottom of some of the circles, plus he/she...

    Smooth,

    duplicate one of the channels in the channel pallette, then add contrast to this duplicated channel with curves, for example, and use it as a source for selection. activate the selection.
    copy the darks and put them on their own layer and change the blend mode to multiply...

    First off, just want to say what an incredible job some people did with the masking of the hair here - really excellent!

    Randy, you asked about a book on channel stuff... the one I'd recommend is called Channel Chops. It's probably out of print, since it was written for a much earlier...

    That is a harsh shadow. Perhaps you can get a nice result with some cloning, which is what I did here at a low opacity as you gradually move your way down her neck till you get a smooth transition. I accidently cloned over a necklace she was wearing.

    Might just be a nice backyard, but...

    Chuck,

    Sorry, but you won't be able to do this convincingly. Photoshop will only get you so far with this picture, so you have two options, where a combination of both would get you the farthest.

    1) in whatever bg you use, make sure it's green around her head. That way...

    replied to Please critique
    There are two main problems - colour/texture & sloppiness.

    1) the colour/saturation and texture of the bat file that you copy and pasted into the painting file are not the same. You did a pretty job with the colour under the circumstances. There's a lot of green remaining in batman,...

    I'm a little confused by what you are trying to accomplish here, so forgive me if my suggestion is completely off. However, if I understand you correctly, and what you are trying to do is what I believe you are trying to do, I managed to do it in a couple seconds.

    - copy/paste (or just...
