From now until Sunday or Monday I'll be busy with our school's fete.  I'll still be online, but not as frequently as usual.  Thanks for your patience.

Beach Photo - Moire Problem

Recommended Posts

I am posting the 100% of my pants!  Should I post in a new thread about possibly moving my son closer to us (asked about on facebook) and also wondering if there is anything to be done with my tummy bulge.  I usually hide myself behind my children for this one very self concious reason!

Try this Channel Mixer layer:

  • Red 0, +70, +30, +1
  • Green 0, +70, +30, 0
  • Blue 0, +70, +30, -4

Is there somewhere with more info?  When I put those numbers in (I don't actually know what channel mixer does) it makes the photo black and white. . . image.thumb.png.642564bc7a1e16acc7c33762a2cee979.png

Like I said - I don't know what that layer does and I've never had to fix moire before - not such a "duh" moment for me, hence the question.

If there is a problem with your pants, I don't understand why you wouldn't assume the solution would involve masking to your pants?

It was more so that I didn't even know it would take me to black and white so I was dumbfounded and not thinking clearly - shocked at the result of a black and white image so frozen in who knows what.

It's not black-and-white, don't you see?  It's pant-colour.

Well - now I see lol - but when it was over the whole image ? . . .  let's just say I just woke up from a nap and wasn't thinking too clearly :P I don't really know.  Brain fart?  who knows, but thanks for the help!

There's a bit more we need to do.

First, can you tell me what the "Background copy" layer is for?

Geez, you don't make a habit of this, do you?  Don't double the size of your file for "no real purpose"!

Phew.

As it happens, you got lucky this time, because we do need that duplicate layer.  You need to apply some Gaussian Blur to it - just enough to get rid of the distinct fabric lines, eg around your hand.  I think about 0.6 will do.

Then mask that layer too.
