It's after the 80s it's one of those where people dress up and it's supposed to look old. I could tell because the bottle of booze has 1981 on the label. I didn't see that thread so I'll go look for it now. If I can't find it I may need to ask for some pointing to it. Thanks

Bill - That is just what I needed to do. I found the old restoration challenge and didn't even think to work out of CMYK. Thank you a million times. It's already looking 97% better.

And thanks to everyone else who posted. Everyone here is wonderful and I'm so thankful for such a wonderful place to meet such great people.

Hi Twinkissed

In RGB the Red and Green channels are affected and in CMYK the Magenta and Black channels are so I’m not sure changing modes is going to help much.

If you want I’ll post what I did but without seeing the whole image it’s difficult to tell, it looks like I may have blown out the Highlights.

I’ve just thought of another way. I’ll have another go.

Ken

i had a go at this too. i followed caitlin's advice first and did an rgb magic wand and turned it into a selection. i then ran hue/sat on it to darken and alter the color a bit on the mold area.

then i ran psp's digital camera noise removal filtration.

then cloned a bit and another digi noise remove.

then a final layer to do some more cloning.

i also ran two adjustment layers; one of contrast/lighten and another of color balance to remove some of the red.

it's going to be a lot of work if this is just one small part of an overall, though. the digi noise remove will only do so much and you're going to have to do a lot of cloning, i would think.

I followed the one example that converted to CMYK kept the cyan level and then converted to greyscale, used levels and color balance and this is what I have so far. It really helped on the feathers too. Thanks again

And now for the feathers.... It still needs some tweaking but it's much better than before I think.

I know I thought I had it but the more I look at it the more I hate it. So, if any more suggestions I would be really really really happy. Did I mention... I would be really happy?

ok, so what happens when you add a contrast/lighten layer and brighten it up? you could even do it with a hue/sat layer and use the lighten there to brighten it up and change any hues you might want at the same time.

well, you undoubtedly know such thing, but i'll add it nevertheless
i like to change blending of lightened/saturated/whatever-you-want-to-do-with-it layer to color dodge or linear dodge with rather low opacity, or hard light, when i want shadows to be more prominent - it gives some life to the pic and can really do wonders sometimes...
