7. Add Some Texture to Clothing

While adding sharpening and detail to the image will yield a better result, you’ll see that clothing and metal will automatically look better with a little enhanced sharpness. Here’s how to get some good texture detail in your image.

Create a duplicate layer of your image, and select Filter > Other > High Pass. Select an amount that brings out the edges of the image into view (see Figure 9).

Once that’s complete, change the blend mode of the layer to Soft light, and hide all of the contents by pressing down the Option (PC: Alt) key and clicking on the Add Mask icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. Now, you can use your brush tool to paint white over the clothing and metal, revealing a little bit more detail in the clothing (see Figure 10). Once this is complete, merge the two layers together by Shift-clicking both of the layers and pressing Command-E (PC: Ctrl-E).
