Textured Trio
« on: October 12, 2017, 02:57:14 PM »
Hi guys.. trying something new with this one.. it would be fairly easy BUT for the terrible texture crackle all over it.. I have a plan.. we'll see if it works... (or not). Did a levels adjust first red green and blue separately.. then did an auto curves which made no difference really.. I did another curves adjust for the neutral gray and I DID check the black point (Shadow was sitting on my shoulder)... left it where is was..
Color correction only..FFT filter did nothing..This should make for interesting work... :cool:

Would this help? Surface Blur?

You are a brave woman Lynn. Eager to see how you whip the cracking into shape! Bambi might be on to the solution  ;)

I'll be interested to see what you come up with!
My gut feeling is that a mix of techniques (noise reduction, blur, painting, patching/cloning in the fine details) might be needed.

I had a quick try just of curiosity:
- Dust & Scratches filter at 1.0, threshold 3 (applied twice)
- Brushed in Gaussian Blur (radius 3.0) at 15% - 50% depending on how visible the cracks were
- Did a rough job at adding in sharper 'dots' on the woman's dress
  > High Pass filter with 'dress' mask with blending mode 'linear light'; this brings back both dots and cracks
  > blurred the cracks between the dot patterns on the HP filter layer; only a rough job as demo - it's painstaking!

here's my latest wip.. don't want to go too far with removing texture so there are still some quirks in it but I think it may be best to leave them.. what say you...

Long overdue, considering the work you put in! I'd hold out for a chauffeur and free flights too ;)

The latest WIP looks great btw.

All in good time my friends. We even provide a corporate jet for the over-achievers. Stay tuned <maybe not in this life time> and you will be rewarded. Thought to self: I smell a revolt and Mike is fanning the flames.  :cool:

Great job Lynnya!
