  1. You mustn't try to fix the lines - that's the way to banding and misery. This will have to be a replacement job. https://www.damiensymonds.net/preventing-banding-in-backdrops/
  2. Ok, so I figure it would need to be like this ... 1. Select a small area of evenly-lit wall: 2. Ctrl J to put it on its own layer, then move it to a different part of the image, so it's visible: 3. Ctrl J it again, and move it across and line it up with the other one. Then Ctrl E to merge them together, then use the clone tool to meld the join if necessary. Keep repeating this over and over ... ... and over and over, until you have enough to cover the whole space: 4. Move it into place, and mask it on:
  3. Google will give you heaps of hits.
  4. Hi Aubrey, could you give me a closer crop of the area?
  5. You can do those in Bridge too. Just sayin'.
  6. I have called in the LR cavalry, and hopefully they'll be able to help you with your question. Take a deep breath and remember that your images are safe. They're still on your hard drive. And you can still use Bridge to browse and edit them any time you like.
  7. Yeah, you have to keep going, so the edges of the shadows are completely soft.
  8. I look forward to seeing how you go. Remember that this requires time and patience. Don't rush it. And be prepared to start over occasionally, if you mess up. It's not easy.
  9. Oh yeah, it looks like utter shit.
  10. Download the PSD I have to go out for a while, I'll check in and see what you think of it later.
  11. Ok, so this?
  12. Yes, it'll work. But gosh, a clean-processed black-and-white please.
  13. Oh gee, you're missing out. You always must sharpen for output, whether print or web.
  14. In your original description of your workflow, you didn't mention resizing and sharpening. Remember to NEVER let any automatic resizing happening, you must always do it yourself, to the exact pixel dimensions you require for whatever website you're intending, then sharpen accurately after resizing.
  15. Then yes, use Save for Web. Under "Metadata" choose how much you wish to include.
