Barbara:

Regardless, you did an excellent job of removing the head, etc. Wow, the work and time required to "extract" the glass is beyond me.

Well done,

Rod

I had to look at that picture at least 50 times before I could appreciate the chin comment. Now I can't look at it without seeing the whole head....pretty neat.

PK, what's really neat is the way our minds fill in empty places, the way we see a complete line where only little dashes or even less might actually exist. This quirk is at the very root of most composition in art. What strange things our minds can be.

You're right, Barb! Speaking of the invisible man, has anyone heard from or seen any recent posts by Prmskpr lately? I didn't hear much since he took that leap of faith and started a new job. Hope he's OK. I may PM him later today. Sorry to break thread.

You're right. I had missed that until I read your post. Now I see the whold head when I look. Can't get it out of my mind!


Barbara,
That's had to be very hard work. I just got my copy of PSP8 and was playing with the cloning tool trying to erase something from a picture. Very time consuming. You done good!

Puck, as time goes on, you'll get better and better at doing this sort of thing. In Photoshop, there's a thing called "Quick Mask" that makes this kind of job easier. With it, you paint out all the areas you want left affected by what you're doing. With the photo of my husband, I painted out the shirt and the glasses, then hit the delete key. Even though it's easier using a mask, it's still tedious in areas such as those glasses, but it's a whole lot easier to use the brush than it is the selection tools.

BCoultry!

Stunning!!! I especially like the "before and after"

It is fun to imagine the "process" you used.

I've occasionally wished I could do this to very real people. Most recently, it was a New York State bureaucrat.

I'd choose my receptionist...

See, DX, it's not just your posts that folks go tangential on!
