I have been looking online in books and I can't really find anything about hair touch-up(when I use the healing or clone stamp you can tell I have cloned something out). I don't wanna just fix stray hairs, I wanna make the hair poofy or fuller looking.

Does anyone know of a book that explains how or better a video.

Thanks,

robert

Adding hair using cloning is difficult, because as you say...it looks cloned. It looks cloned because there is a texture and our eyes are excellent at seeing a pattern.

I'll give you a couple of options to consider:


Liquify
You can use the liquify tool to reshape hair. Go slowly and do this in stages using the freeze tool to keep hair you don't want to move. Bloat and shrink can be used to make hair "poofy" or flat -- and even appear closer or further from the camera. The forward warp tool can add curls or shape where you want it.

Here is a sample (please don't critique the coloration of this sample -- it's an animated GIF, which isn't the best choice for a photograph, but was the simplest way to show you an overlay of before and after). The image shows before for 2 sec and then shows after for 2 sec and repeats. There's no need to click it or hover.



Draw it!
It might seem daunting, but take a page right of of the fantasy artist's book. Find out how to draw realistic hair here: http://www.elfwood.com/farp/theart/g...eyenihair.html -- of course, to get your colors, you should sample the model's own hair. (If you are looking for a highlight color, take it from the model's highlight color.

There is a great book (and fun) that has a section on hair you might find useful...the book is called "Photoshop Cosmetic Surgery" by Barry Jackson...look on page 70 and 71 called Rise and Shine...
Hope this helps...

Thanks so much I'm always in the liquify filter and never really thought of using it to poof the hair.

What do you normally use to remove stray hairs?
