Sandwich Technique
« on: November 18, 2006, 01:03:28 PM »
Here is the tutorial. I posted it on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhhjsy0_yMM


As with any technique in photoshop, you can do several different things with this. I've found that if I'm really stuck on a project, I can do this and it usually helps.

If anyone has trouble understanding the video, let me know and I'll clarify myself. I realize all of you may not speak "Hillbilly", so forgive my accent.


Kenny :)

But why is the rum gone?

Kenny -- Great tutorial!  I can attest that the technique worked very well on my last restoration, and I'm sure I'll use it again with the next one.

Thanks for taking the time to give us such a succinct explanation.

Kenny,
Wow--I just stumbled on this thread -- and boy am I glad I did.  I know of another sandwich technique and just assumed that this was the same...   <<..it's not..>>

Anyway, keeping the photographic quality of our originals has always been challenging with those really damaged images and this technique is just wonderful!

I'm curious if you use smart objects on your original layer.  I couldn't see (my fourty-something eyes are acting up!) with your clip if it was...

Can anyone explain this technique to me. I've heard about it in throughout several different threads. When I just went to watch the video, it was no longer there. It says it was removed by user. :(

Hi!

Kenny must have just removed the video, because I checked it out Saturday before I recommended it to someone and it was still there.  I always have to refer to it, because I can never remember exactly what he did.  I'm hoping someone else can.

I THINK this is it. I believe Kenny used the eraser on the desat layer. I prefer a mask...it's more forgiving. ;D

Someone else will have to answer that. I don't use it.

From what I remember, the Sandwich Technique is for restoring the photographic quality to a restoration that has lost it, i.e, become painterly.  I think you copy the original, damaged image onto an layer (on Overlay blending mode) over your restored image, then use an eraser to delete the damaged areas, revealing the restored image underneath.

I hope I haven't gotten it all wrong.  Kenny would be the expert on this, of course.  It's too bad his youtube video is missing.
