another picture.

Here is another picture I am working on. I can handle all the color, dust, writing on this one... But what I can't seem to tackle is the right hand side where it is lighter.. Mainly on his jacket is the problem.

I've tried different adjustment layers, with a mask of just the jacket but can't seem to get it to look right..

Have you tried selecting the area with a soft feathered edge and copy it to it's own layer (control J or command J) and them change the layer blend mode to Multiply? That will darken an area for you and if it's too dark you adjust the opacity or if it's too light still you copy the layer until it's the level of darkness you want.

DJ,

Yes. Something like that shows some promise. Need to get the selection down, but looks like it could do the trick.

I am not that familar with the different layer modes.

Have you tried different settings with the burn tool?

Ok I gave it a try and here's what I found out. I selected the area from the curtain down and copied it to a layer. When I changed to the multiply blend mode I noticed a yellowing so I had to desaturate that layer using hue/sat and lowering the saturation. Then I copied the layer and lowered the opacity until they were very close to match the rest of the picture. I then used a layer mask on each to clean up the edges and flattened the image. Finally I used the dodge and burn tool at low opacity to adjust hot spots on the jacket.

Thanks Sharon. I told James to try the multiply blend mode then thought I better see how that works. Glad I did because it caused a real yellow look.
Nothing like giving aid and not trying it first to see if it actually works.

The way you did it, you can't tell it's been corrected. That's as good as it gets.

James,

It seems as though you have all the help you need. But I encourage you to try the different blending modes on a layer, just to see what they can do for you. You can simply change from one mode to another on the same layer to see the results. It wasn't too long ago, I had no idea what the blending modes did, and now I use them all the time. They are simple to use, and really make things easier.

Ed
