A roll of film exposed before development

I worked with this scanned image at a person's request.
It looked not so much difficult but required much perseverence to restore it.
It took me about 2-3 hours...
24 layers and 7 alpha channel were used...
I think it has room for improvement which I've overlooked.

Any suggestions or critics would be appreciated.

venivedi, looks like an excellent job on a tough job! Some folks would have just figured they had lost those images -- good thing you were available (or that it was your film). I took a quick look at the image and saw that the green channel was relatively undamaged, but the other channels showed damage as well as strong color cast. I started off with a mask made from the Red channel and used Channel Mixer and Selective Color to make some big improvements, but it still looked very obviously damaged. You spent a lot of time and effort making it look like it never happened -- Good Work!

What was YOUR workflow strategy?

Thanks all for the comments.

### I needed a decent red channel, otherwise a (weak) negative, to restore ***the facial part***...because I can clone colors from undamaged part separately.

In my case...(Sorry, I can't remind of the exact steps I followed ^^;;;...trial & error)

@ started with Channel Mixer and layer mask(Apply Image : Red channel, Multiply)
@ L channel from a duplicate, Image>Calculations

@ sky part : copy & paste, used clone stamps to make some border smooth

( Maybe my English has gotten rusty. It took about 30 minutes to make a post. )

If you've gotten rusty, then it's good practice for you to post here more often!

Thanks for the general workflow -- again, you did an excellent job on a difficult assignment.

Hi Venivedi,

Correcting images showing such damage as yours is my worse nighmare. I am not very good at it and it takes me forever.

So jealous.

Indigo

Amazes me how people do this type of stuff. I've never tried it before and I originally came to this forum to find tutorials and help taking my vacation photos to a higher plateau. Seeing the work you guys do makes me want to dig out an old photo from a family member and restoring it.

Keep up the good work!
