Professionals - what technique or task do you think is the most difficult in your work?

What do you have a hard time with? What is something you have trouble figuring out how to do? I'm always curious

Hi. I have a question about choosing a monitor. I spend a lot of time at the computer working as a graphic designer, or rather as a photo editor (soon as a photographer). I am looking for a monitor that will be perfect for this profession. I decided on EIZO CS2731, I know it's stupid but I don't like it visually, it's kind of clumsy. I would also like to use this screen to watch movies or series and play games. However, if you think that such a monitor must be only for graphics, I will understand it and buy another one for playing games. Please give me your opinions. Budget 1,5k €

Questions are now allowed in this sub. Title post can be a question but you still need an image or link with the question.

So include an image thats on topic to what you are asking about.

Smoothing creases, but keeping texture help.

Hi everyone, new here! I'm learning to retouch under the tutelage of my partner, and I had to pass back a job to her as I couldn't get a decent effect of "ironing out creases" on the request. The picture attached isn't part of the job we're working on due to client confidentiality, but it's illustrative.

Using frequency separation, with a small gaussian blur on the low, I'm able to get the majority of creases out to a good degree, but these files are >18000px for POS display, and my work definitely wouldn't pass the cut.

I'm hoping people could be kind enough to give me some tips on how to smooth out creases whilst keeping the fabric texture.

I'd say my usage is intermediate but I'd still appreciate an idiot's guide if possible. But for context, I'm getting 80% of my work approved by our clients (so maybe doesn't need to be that low level explaination) but without trying to take too much of my partner's time to ask her to spend a few hours teaching me,, I'm asking for help here (we've got a big job and she's already stressed with the workload, and i don't want to that for her right now).

Should the sub allow questions?

The reason behind this rule was that most other sub-reddits that allow questions always get overrun with questions. Usually the questions are repetitive and not particularly interesting to the field at large.

But i've been more busy recently with personal and work stuff that I am not posting as often as I use to, so I figure one way to get some more movement in here would be to allow questions. BUT ONLY HIGH QUALITY QUESTIONS which I know is subjective but I think it's the only way to not let this turn into a quora like place

Dust spots: I'm removing them on pictures one by one and by hand using the healing brush. Is there any way to speed this process up?
