Have you ever taken a photo of a butterfly that you thought would make a good image … only to find out part of its wing was torn? Frustrating isn’t it? Well, this tutorial will show you how to take a photo of a shop-worn butterfly and turn it into a perfect specimen. If you have one of the later Adobe Photoshop programs, this tutorial will show you how to turn “this” butterfly:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO

Before

Into this butterfly:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO

After


If you already know how to work well in Photoshop, great! But if you're still learning and would be interested in learning the process, I invite you to read the full article here (external link).

Cheers!

Jack

It's often said that there's a dozen ways to photoshop something...I would have duplicated the image>created a selection of the tip only>moved to original image>free transformed for proper angle/fit>blended if necessary.
But, If I look back at my "fixed" subjects...they oftentimes lack the "character" of a hard life.
Regardless, enough philosophy, thanks for insight John.


The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.
A man's worth should be judged, not when he basks in the sun, but how he faces the storm.

Always more than one way to skin a cat, eh? :)

Agree. That is exactly why I leave "some" minor imperfections in the butterfly, but remove any glaring faults.
