    Sep 24, 2008, 7:29 PM - More Photoshop Fun - Retouching #1

    Ok, at the Force Unleashed Launch Party I had the good fortune to be able to get on stage with George Lucas himself. It was a real honor. Unfortunately the only photos had the metal bars in them from the platform, which obscured a lot of the picture. Our contact at LFL said she would send copies of press photos if she could find them. In the meantime I wanted something I could put in a frame at home, so decided to see what I could do in Photoshop. LFL was kind enough to send me some hi-rez shots to work with, which was great.

    Anyway, thought I would share...

    First photo - unretouched:
    Sort of dark and has the bars



    New picture - retouched
    Lightened most of the picture and got rid of the bars
    I gave the developer big burly arms while I was at it - :



    Amazing what can be done with this app!

    I am still not pleased with a couple little things, but it's probably good enough for now.

    Thx guys - good thing I was able to reconstruct the top of the chest box. Hope the dude on the left appreciates the loan of Richard Dean Anderson's guns. Think I better put his wedding ring back on though - LOL

    Impressive, most impressive.

    Great job, I've done my fair share of playing with PS but your skills blow mine out of the water!

    Quick Update -

    Thanks everyone!

    Still did not like the look on Sam's face - kind of scrunched up - so I gave him a new one.

    Yep, arms courtesy of Richard Dean Anderson. Wedding ring coming back soon - although with those buff new arms maybe he wants to be single again?

    Mostly used the clone tool for this, though I rebuilt some of the sections from another photo as well. Used warp, recolorization, and a few other things too.



    Now to get some real work done :
