totally Yellow

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction with this photograph I have of a friend. He is celbrating his 40th year of ordination this coming Sunday and I would love to be able to present him with a half decent picture but cant seem to get the yellow caste out of the pcture without simply doing a hue/saturate and desaturating the image which certainly makes it a lot clearer but still not as the original in color.

anyine care t take a shot at it for me and let me know the way forward? thanks

Andrew

Just a little help but you have to color it

Some blue channel and some green for detail, merge and turn to sepia (my taste)

Hope this helps

The dammage is not uniform. A channel mixer adjustment layer can blend some of the blown out detail with the shadow details in the blue channel to produce a workable grayscale image. From there you can either duo-tone the image or colorizer it. I just did the chair as an example.

Here's what I did:

1. Made a copy of the basic layer, added channel mixer to it and adjusted the values as follows:
<Green> red 10 | green 60 | blue 50
<Red> red 90 | green 0 | blue 20
<Blue> red 10 | green 40 | blue 90

2. Made another copy of the basic layer. Applied channel mixer to it with the following values:
red 55 | green -5 | blue 50
Selected the child with the lasso tool, added 2px feather to the selection, inverted it and hit delete. This way the color layer shows from below and the kid's face and legs are the only thing that needs to be colorized.

3. Added new layer, blending mode set to Color and put some color on the child's face. Made a marquee selection of the lower part of the image (it has some red nuance left) including the chair, excluded the red dress from the selection, then desaturated the reds.

That's it!
Hope it's helpful

Hi there

Like Murray I used the channel mixer set to mono to increase the blue and green and decrease the red to get as good a grayscale as I could. Then added a little color back in.

Hi Andrew.

I made a new luminosity layer from a mix of the channels.
There is still some colour there; I added layers to colour to repair it.
Selective sharpened and tied baby’s shoelace.

Please ask if you need more info.

Another Approach

Here is an alternate approach to arrive at a restored image without extensive painting. Although some additional painting is recommended, the image may be passable as is.

- Ctrl J to duplicate the background. Ctrl+I, A,X to call up the Channel Mixer. Check Monochrome box and set the values to R=20. G=20, B=60.
- Change the blend mode of that grayscale layer to Luminosity.
- Before proceeding I painted over the small section of the coat to make it match the rest of the coat.
- Add a Photo Filter layer on top to remove the green cast. Color sampled was the dark green in the Father's robe.
This preserves some detail and color in just a few minutes of effort. It is still recommended to continue with selective color adjustments and / or painting.

By the way, the image you attached was set to a large size and extremely compressed to fit the 100KB limit and consequently is very severely jpg block pixelated. In Future you would be better to downsize the image to approx 5 x 8 and save on setting 7 or 8.

Regards, Murray

Here is my attempt....
duplicate background, use channel mixer to pop up the blue channel, then set the gray layer to multiply.... after this some color adjustment, add some blue and magenta, and pop up the levels a little bit...

Hi guys,

thanks a heap for the information. I really want to get this finished for his celebrations on the 24th and you have all given me a great help. No matter what i tried other than to take the saturation right down would give me anything as far as reducing the yellow tinge.

Thanks again for your help and hope to repay the favor sometime for anyone else in a problem with something.

Andrew
