repair using frequency separation

Post by Shine Gonzalvez » Sun Feb 01, 2015 9:26 pm

it was noted by bobby that the large spot on her forehead possibly distracted from the picture.....
he suggested i might try frequency separation to repair it....
although i like the technique ...i feel it that this technique may work better on delicate repairs and smoothing as opposed to a large one like this....
i would value the opinion of anyone that knows about this to let me know if this is true

Shine, in the original area, you have texture and the colouration of the skin. In the others, it seems that you have lost texture in that area. I have found when I use this technique, that it sometimes requires careful selection of areas to clone the skin tone from. I am not sure but I have the impression you may have been working on the high frequency layer when using the clone tool instead of the low frequency layer. This is something I was doing a lot by mistake when I started using this technique. It sometimes gave results similar to this.

As this correction requires a tonal adjustment only frequency separation is a prime opportunity to use this technique as it separate all detail and all tone to dofferent layers, simply paint over the bad area with the proper tone, blend it with a bit of Gaussian blur and you should be good to go. It does not matter if you are working on a large detailed project or a small patch such as this FS is a perfect tool for tonal adjustments without losing detail.

They are both good though the phlearn version really only covers using the technique for smoothing while the other one from Herb is much more detailed and delves much deeper into what can be done with the technique.

Shine. Your attempt here for me is a little bit better. Perhaps it's the techniques itself or just getting accustomed to it. Even though it is dark, gloomy etc, it comes across as a cleaner edit if you get my meaning. This one is a better fit to the "vision" I guess is another way of saying it.

In all honesty I am not sure I see what you are changing. My issue with the image was the patches of saturated skin across the forehead and down the camera right side of the face. To fix these you would paint skin tone color from sampled areas near the areas to be fixed with a soft brush set to Color mode. You would do this painting on a mask on the lo frequency layer and may have to adjust opacity of the repair to blend
