The Black Crud MP4 Photoshop Clean-up Video: $15
It might seem to many that the clean-up for this image would be a snap, but to do it well requires time, a bit of knowledge, and some practiced skills. In this just-released MP4 video, "The Vertical With the Black Crud MP4 Photoshop Clean-up Video," I take you through the whole process from soup to nuts. Along the way, I learned something cool about Gaussian Blurs. You can work with me step by step as I use the Patch Tool, the Spot-healing Brush, the Clone Stamp Tool, the Divide and Conquer technique, several small Quick Masks refined by Regular Layer Masks, to clean up the black crud (and a bit more). You will learn about the Align Box as well as something new about using Gaussian Blur on a small area. You will see me use my NIK Color Efex Pro 30-30 filter to bring detail to the WHITEs and then add a Regular Layer Mask to reduce the effect in varying degrees as needed and to taste. Lastly I introduce the Simplified Neat Image v7 techniques to reduce the noise in the background. Lastly I take you through the steps of saving the optimized TIFF and creating and sharpening a JPEG for sharing on the web.
