    Well, now that you've commented on this thread you're automatically "following" it, so when you hit the "Content I follow" link (both at the top right and bottom right of every page on this site) you'll get that list. That's not a perfect system but it's the only one I can think of, other than bookmarking this page in your browser. But you don't need to comment on a thread in order to follow it. You can just hit the blue "Follow" button in the top left corner.

    Phew! Glad you like it. Let me try to explain my steps ... The Patch Tool is the best way to get rid of the bulk of the strap, but as I've said before, it works best on "islands" - that is, smaller chunks of strap with "ocean" (skin) all around them. So the first step is to duplicate the Background layer and use the clone tool to carefully chop the strap into sections: Then use the Patch Tool to get rid of the sections. Drag around one and drag it to a nearby clean section of skin: Hopefully, this will fill the patch with seamless skin: Keep on repeating this ... ... until it's all clear: Then add a blank layer, and clone out the area where the strap runs under the fabric. Clone further than necessary: Then add a mask to that layer and mask it carefully: (More info here.) Finally, add a blank layer and use the eyedropper tool to sample some lighter-coloured fabric, then add a Solid Color layer of that colour. Put the layer on "Lighten" blend mode: Add a black mask to that layer, then very patiently paint on to the dark areas of the tulle with a low opacity brush (5-10%) until it is sufficiently disguised.

    This is the best result possible, I think. At least, it's the best I can figure out how to do. Would it be sufficient?

    Oh, don't worry, I never thought that. Your question is completely understandable.

    Also, if I may say, don't forget that the two classes you haven't taken yet - Channel Mixer and Advanced Levels - are the ones that give you the most creative avenues.

    Yes did exactly as you said, then just adjusted color to match the sleeve. Thanks!

    I'm so sorry mate, I have NFI. You're the second person to mention this. The other person had to re-record the action from scratch.
