Another Casio one....Deep thought has died so I am uploading old tosh via Number 3 childs laptop from my portable HD. Ah bit of surface blur on a copy layer, alt/click a mask and paint through the blury stuff. Oh here's a handy hint for shadows as well, just do a dupe layer, change the blend to screen, alt/click a mask on that layer(so its black filled) and paint away the shadows , using a soft brush at about  50% opacity and flow.......make sure the brush is white, works a treat on eyes in Portraits!!

David Johnson: Slid further down the pixel ladder and have taken a load with the camera phone....but the old puter is dead so waiting for a Dell uber cruncher to turn up!

David Johnson: No problem Bill, have a play.
Hey there's nothing wrong with this old tosh David! Excellent capture.
David Johnson: Ha, just scraping around on my portable HD, looking for anything usable, gone a bit twitchy since my computer died and not having my daily fix of Photoshop
Nice one and thanks for the tip
David Johnson: Give it a try Nigel, it does work!
