Hi everyone

Certainly looking better than anything I have achieved so far.

Re: Old wedding

Smurf, I applied the B channel to the image in luminosity mode to even out the tone, then did a color correction to get rid of the blue cast. There are adequate Black, white, and gray points to do that in levels or curves. A little painting on a blank layer set to color blend can touch up some of the other colors. Partial touch up attached.
Regards, Murray

Re: Old wedding

A better scan would yield much better results.
I had to use FFT filter. There was some noise pattern & I think it was caused by the scanner. I might be wrong.

Chillin
Again I congratulate you on a super job
These are far better than anything I produced

Doesn't mean I will give up - I've got a target to achieve now

Many thanks all

Re: Old wedding

Here's my try. Workflow was:
Selected Aging color and did a hue and sat adjustment
Adjusted levels, end points and contrast
Balanced the colors using a selective color layer
Sharpened

I think starting with a higher resolution picture, this work flow would yield a framable result.

Re: Old wedding

I used levels and lab to correct the initial color and later used a HSL adjustment layer to adjust some of the purple cast
