About Damien Symonds

  1. Right. It's very easy to save your own preset. I wrote about it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195567190503489/permalink/969328583127342/
  2. No, gosh, don't do that. It's only $46 to get all the up-to-date info: https://www.damiensymonds.net/trainingraw-signup.html
  3. How did you go?
  4. Actually, you'll find that Frequency Separation is good for this. People try to use FS for all kinds of stupid stuff that it's not meant for, but this is where it prevails. Have you used it before? I don't have any resources on it, but a google search will give you plenty.
  5. I remembered I had this about eyes: https://www.damiensymonds.net/fixing-crossed-eye.html Hope it might help a little.
  6. No, just the rectangular marquee.
  7. Oh crap, I forgot to say, I got those Levels values by using this method: https://www.damiensymonds.net/levels-eyedropper
  8. After that, you'd start your normal Levels work.
  9. Ok, this is what you're heading towards: First I did the eye. What I didn't expect was that I had to use two copies of it - one to replace the lower edge of the iris, and another to replace the pupil. You might decide that one or both of those steps aren't necessary; I personally didn't like how the catchlight cut through the pupil, you know? Then this Levels layer for the main flare across the chest and wrist: R 40/1.00/255 G 70/1.00/255 B 70/1.00/255 Mask it on as carefully as possible, but there will still be an arc at the edge, that will have to be cloned later: Then this Levels layer for the bit of flare on the throat: R 30/1.00/255 G 45/1.00/255 B 45/1.00/255 Again, mask on carefully, but again, there will be an edge: Then add a blank layer above all that, and gently clone those edges. By the end of the process, my Layers panel looked like this:
  10. As I have no other choice, we'll press ahead as if this is good. I have to run and iron a shirt, I'll be back soon.
  11. Hmmm ... I searched back, and couldn't find it.
  12. Are you SURE this is the SOOR you want to work with?
  13. Oh dear. Come on mate, this is awful. Really really awful. You've clearly forgotten everything. https://www.damiensymonds.net/trainingraw-signup.html
  14. No, the SOOR please. Raw work done, but no PS work yet.
  15. Well, may I have the SOOR of your photo?
