Newbie--Cleaning up marks----HELP
Thanks, in advance.
Superson, rather than try to repair the badly dammaged area, my approach for this image would be to clone the whole scarf or the scarf and part of the jacket from the other side of the image. You could use the pen and / or lasso tools to select, feather, copy to its own layer, flip horizontal, and position it over the damage area. Then match up the color and fine tune. I only had a couple of mins to play with it, but here is the direction I think could work for you.
Welcome to RetouchPro.
I copied the scarf as MM and Ozonew4m but I repaired the jacket rather than replacing it.
I am not sure if that’s a pocket in the jacket. It seems a little high up for a pocket?
Cleaned the background and blotches using Clone and Heal and repaired the jacket with a layer set to lighten as in this tutorial
Welcome to RP!
Not an easy picture to restore ... and I don't mean the scratches ... what I'm not really sure of is the skin colour ...
For the scratches, particularly those that aren't on the face, you got a good tip from Murray (mistermonday) .... or, like Ken and myself did, you could go for the 'reconstruction' ...
My work on your image is exactly the same as Ken ... and here is what I came up with ...
very nicely cleaned .... I just would go easier on the global 'lightening up' ... some parts of your image are 'blown out' ... you could try selecting the darker parts of the image and lightening those only ... or, if you work with PS CS you could try the Shadow/Highlight Adjustment .... have a look at this Tutorial...
I see you used a stronger magenta ... that's what I did too, but then it looked a bit too much on my monitor so I toned it down a bit ... but I'm not sure ....
Hope superson can tell us ...
Thank You for your kind comments.
I recently purchased a ColorVision ColorPlus (Cheap Spyder) So I now have no excuses for my colours.
I also found the skin colour difficult but I think both our pictures are acceptable.
The line you found on the top of the jacket looks better than mine. And I took the easy route with the scarf and made it look a bit thin.
I tried again.
