    This is an engagement pic I have taken, and I'm in need of some help. She wants this one printed, but her roots need some help. Can someone help me blend her longer hair color up into her roots? Can anyone please help me fix this problem? Is this problem able to be fixed?

    I can email you the pic if someone can help me. I would appreciate any help. Here's the link: http://www.authenticsound.net/KW
    Thank you!

    It is able to be fixed but it is going to take quite a long time to fix it. If it is real important to her that you fix it, I would tell her it is going to cost extra because of intricate area it is.

    Is this what you're looking for?

    It's really easy, and not time consuming at all.

    First you duplicate the background layer, set the brush tool to overlay, and sample color from lighter areas of her hair, and start painting over the hair roots. I set the opacity to 20%, but you could experiment. Then I change the brush blending mode to color, and paint lightly over the hair roots again. And that's it.

    Yeah...but why not take out that spot on her nose while you're at it. BTW, really nice shot.

    I find her fingers to be kind of distracting. I actually liked her haircolor, lol.

    did she say she wanted the roots touched up??

    Im only asking because I would think that if she didnt want her roots looking like that, she maybe should have dyed them. I mean after all it's not like these are just random snapshots.

    I was going to do the same thing in Capture NX... at least as quick, same result but you do it slightly differently... but most folks don't have NX but do have photoshop so I will just hush :)
