How do I add facial Hair to a Photo?


Recommended Posts

I saw something on youtube on how to do this with another program, and I got like 5 of the steps done using the paint.net tools, but I couldn't get the same end result, can someone post a step by step please...

Here's the step process I had so far..

1. make a new layer.

2. chose the color gray and draw your beard/moustache etc.

3. go to effects, Noise, Add Noise (gives you the grainy look).

4. make a circle with your ellipse tool.

5.go to effects, pick blur, chose Radial Blur.

Then after that your suppsed to do something with changing the properties to make it look like lite stubble, then go to adjustments, and pick curves, then when you adjust the curse you get the dark stubble, to full beard look, but these are the steps I can't figure out how to create, so far this is the best I came up with... post-74530-127105827327_thumb.jpg

Looks ok so far, though I'd adjust the opacity because it's WAY to... present now. Make it more subtle!

I tried playing with different things, that's the best I can get.... Here's the video of how the guy does it using another program, maybe your familiar enough with Paint.Net to understand what tools on P.N are equal to what he uses..

you can see when he does the layer properties step he says pick Hardlight, Paint.net dont have that, but when he does it, it looks like she has blonde stubble, then when he does the Curve Step, it makes it darker.. Edited by Khaos696

Sorry , my English is bad.

You can make hardlight by using Overlay in paint.net.

After you made facial hair , move layer down.

choose upper layer (original photo) , and open properties.

choose blending mode " Overlay"

This result is same as "hardlight"(as upper layer is facial hair)

Other attention

>2. chose the color gray and draw your beard/moustache etc.

use upper 50% gray (RGB = 128,128,128).

he (in youtube) use "919191"gray that is Hex value same as 57% gray(RGB = 145,145,145).

This is important for "looks like she has blonde stubble"

>3. go to effects, Noise, Add Noise (gives you the grainy look).

if you want same as youtube ,

Intensity is about 50.

Color Saturation is 0.

Coverage is 100.

>4. make a circle with your ellipse tool.

this is not need for Paint.NET.

>5.go to effects, pick blur, chose Radial Blur.

he (in youtube) used zoom blur.

photshop's filter "Radial Blur" have 2mode "Radial" and "Zoom"

Paint.NET "Zoom Blur" can select posion center.

move "center" in center of face.

As photoshop have not "center" , "4. make a circle with your ellipse tool." is need.

You can understand my poor English ?

I hope you can.

Good luck!

Axle- Um why would I get in trouble for showing people what you get when you add certin effects to make facial hair?? I've seen other pictures posted under other threads, and I haven't gotten any warning from a Administrator yet, so I think I'll be alright..
