Wavelet Decompose Portrait Retouching Before and After Part… three I guess?

October 2, 2009

I don’t remember how many examples I had previously blogged…. At any rate, here is another before and after of portrait retouching using the wavelet decompose plugin in GIMP. 15-20 minutes. And the natural skin texure is preserved!

Once again: if you run the wavelet decompose plugin (I use 6 to 7 wavelets), keep the higher frequency data (corresponding to the lower numbered wavelets), and edit the medium frequency data (corresponding to the mid numbered wavelets; I tend to use a mixture of smudging and cloning of layers 3, 4, and 5 depending on the nature of the skin imperfection), you get a nice smooth skin with the overall texture intact.

Hover your mouse over the photo below for a “before and after.”
