Hi,

Ernie,


welcome to RP!!

Like Cass, to remove the yellow cast, I used Image > Adjustment > Selective Colors ... but I used it in a much 'stronger' way ... meaning... excluding Cyans and Magentas, I tweaked all the colours ...

Attachments 1 to 4 = the values I changed and the immediate result after the procedure.

Attachments 5 = my final result after restoration...

Hope this helps...

Channel Mixer

Butch, thanks for the tip about using the channel mixer. That is a better way. Flora very nice correction & result.

This is just one of many ways of attacking the problem. Essentially, as others have indicated, you will need to replace the blue channel. Photo Filter, Channel Mixer, or Hue/Saturation adjustment layers are all good options to use as a starting point.

Your folks are better than a six credit crash course in Photoshop, thanks and am trying to repeat your work to learn all I can. Thanks a million.

You all have given me so much to think about, as I have already said, "this is a 6 credit Course in any University any where and I thank you all. Now to try and repeat everything so that I can glean the knowledge you all have offered.
Thanks again.

Ernie

A couple of questions, are you getting your number from the slider adjustments or do you have a matrix base line to start from?
What is your restrotation procedures?
I can come close to your version, but not to your standards.

... My corrections are mostly done by 'eyeballing' ... meaning .. by simply moving the sliders until I'm happy with the result ... I have a love/hate relationship with numbers ... .. but I use them a a guideline when nothing else works.

I don't mean precise selections that take forever to make ... but loose selections of the individual parts that need to be corrected (I refine my selections with the help of a layer Mask) ... Most of the time 'my procedures' involve a lot time and surely a lot of 'tedious' work ...

so nice to hear from you as well. Had the pleasure to visit NZ during our (USA)
attempt to stop the dominoes from falling in the Pacific Rim area. Also, flew with some of your countrymen, a pleasure I will always cherrish, right along with trying to drink some Aussie's under the table. No contest, they carried me home and close down the darn place. Nice to know these folks have attracked the most wonderful people in the world. Love you all.

Now if I could only write a filter to do that.
