Can anyone give me a technique for removing skin stretch marks on the butt and breast?

Thanks,
Henry

I, also, would like to hear a good answer that doesn't involve a lot of time editing on photoshop

The patch tool is your friend...

At least it's mine

Ummmm. Plastic surgery?

It really doesn't take that much time. Unless of course there's a bunch to fix.

Echoing the patch tool suggestion as well.

Another option is the Clone Tool, but set the mode to darken so you are just filling in the lighter areas of the marks, but the Patch Tool is my first choice in the process.

Finally, keep in mind that besides the undo option (Ctrl Z or trashing the History steps involved) , you can often just fade the result (Ctrl Shift F) to make the adjustment more seamless looking.

How I do it ... for the most part.

Dave

I pretty much swear by the clone tool, and occasionally the healing brush tool.....just keep opacity between 50-75%. I have not tried the patch tool....I hope to see it done that way and I can try for myself!

Thanks for the replys. I'm not sure I understand the patch tool method either, but I've tried the clone tool and had no success. I've attached the photo that I'm having trouble correcting. If anyone has a better technique, I would appreciate the help.
Thanks
Henry

Here's a very fast fix to give you a sense of what the Patch Tool and Cloning Brush (set to darken) can achieve. Not perfect, but I only had a few minutes to fit it between stuff I am doing here. Hope it helps.

Dave

Haven't done an attached file thing here before, so this may show up as an image ... sorry

Here is what I came up with....of course it is always better to edit a high resolution image, and view at actual pixels, but this was good enough to give you a basic idea....this was just a quick fix, but I got the worst of them with the clone and just blended very carefully....watch your brush type and size.....I made 2 layers and did a guassian blur / darken blending mode, both blur% and opacity at 28%, second layer same % guassian blur, lighten blending mode, merged layers and used an eraser tool to resharpen areas I didn't want the guassian blur on....also slightly bumped up contrast in levels....hope this helps.....stretchies are a bitch....good even lighting and no shadowing makes for an easier fix....fixing stretch marks in light fall off areas really sucks bad....but it can be done...also play with your camera angles, they may show up less with just a turn....

Just a quick fix to show technique. This was done with the healing brush. I like the idea of it blending so that each area is still unique. I also applied gausian blur.



It seems to me that photoshop is not an option with digital photography, and it just is time consuming.
