Ready to play "Strip a Bitch" for the next two hours.
Rules -- Post your picts; I will try to xray them in the order posted. For the most part, I will post my results, regardless of how good they are. If I don't get a result. I will explain what I think my problem was and whether I think someone else might get a better result.
No underage. I will skip any obvious underaged subjects. If no face, I will skip. I also don't do asses. If I have done the shot before (or if I recognize it as posted way too often), I will probably skip. I also don’t like cropped picts, or close-ups that are effectively crops, and may skip.
Tell me who she is to you. I may skip if you don't.
I use multiple methods. I start with color and contrast filters, rather than the normal level method. If that doesn't work, I will try curves (rather than levels) with color shift to match skintone for light or white clothes and sharpening/blending. I sometimes use an exposure/color shift method for black or dark clothes. I use unsharpen mask and highpass filtering rather than burn to bring out detail, although I do use a light burn/dodge to bring out nipple color as a finishing touch. I also use blurs, both at the start, to even out noise, and at the end as a finisher.
If my ordinary method does not work, I will use other, more advanced methods before giving up, including work with inverts and channels.
My method works better with dark clothes (especially black) then it does with white ones. Also, there are a lot of rayers who do white, and do white exclusively and very well. For that reason, I may skip white clothes just because my time is limited here.
Some rules. Shadows and light gradients are a problem. Dark clothes require brighter light (otherwise no data); and light clothes require more dim light (otherwise they are washed out). Layers and glossy fabric are serious problems. The key here is that light penetrates through clothes, to skin, and then gets reflected back. To get at this color data, first the light has to penetrate (layers and glossiness interfere with that -- and swimsuits are often both layered and glossy).
The picture is manipulated to remove color levels associated with clothes, leaving a very faint and often low quality image of bare skin, which can then be enriched through filters that duplicate and fill in pixel patterns. This is why patterned fabric, stripes, shadows, and color gradients are a problem. In such cases, you can't just remove some color levels to reach a few that show skin and not much else.
With fabric doubling, uneven light,etc. -- no more than a hint.
she is my older sister
No one can be 100% sure unless the pict is already transparent, in which case it merely needs contrast enhancement rather than real xraying -- but, this one was a problem due to the contrast between the lace and fabric.
That contrast will not work.
Too glossy and ruffled.
Bra blocks most detail.
I don't like shadow/contrast on the right;not getting much of anything on left -- picture eroded by highpass.
either girl...preferably one on left? did a theater show with her...weird pic..i know.
Bad crop and loosness/rumples a problem, but posting because teacher.
Layers mean all I can get is contours.
Any chance you can do both this MILF and her mom. MILF lives down the street
Bad crop. No ID.
Can't really improve that given shadow and contrast.
Not getting anything clear to work with here.
sisters! went to school with them! one on the left please if you just do 1!
i'd take the both..but i want the one on the right...both went to school with me
far right! went to camp with her for years. Nows shes married to a pro athlete.
same girl on the left if this one works better
No ID -- and my method doesn't really work on bw.
Getting no detail.
Skipping due to blocked face IN PICT.
Cropped -- and bad contrasts.
