Please help!

Hi

I think this pic has potential but havent been able to get it there:

http://images.fotopic.net/?iid=ygqpp...00&quality=100

I think if we can change the white background to something contrasting and touch the leaves that are off colour, we would be ok.

I tried both, without success in any!

Regards
Hardeep

Here's a little trick to put the green back into the leaves.

- Convert to LAB mode;

(Green is represented in LAB by negative [dark] values in the A channel and positive [light] values in the B channel. The A channel is OK, but you can see where the leaves have become discoloured in the B channel. We are going to copy [inverted] the A channel to the B channel)

- Duplicate the layer;
- Select the "Channels" palette and then select the B channel;
- Image>Apply Image, source Channel A, select invert;
- Now you have nice green leaves, adjust opacity and mask away areas of this layer that you don't need.

Hi Ro

Thanks for the nice trick and for explaining the logic behind. There are so many things that can be done "mathematically".

Thanks

Hi there

Here is another way... use a Selective color layer and in colors select cyan. Then adjust the the values there and duplicate the layer to increase the effect if needed.
