Red stains in B&W twins photo

Maybe is too easy for some of you but I have no idea... Please, give me your advice in how to take out this stains while keeping the image integrity. I also want to know your ideas to correct the tilted change of tonality across the entire photo...

Re: Red stains in B&W twins photo

Hi there

Hard to give advice without the photo... but never stopped me before..lol

Duplicate your background.

Click on the top duplicate and desaturate...ctrl+Shift+U... if the red disappears.. then you are in luck


Delete your temp duplicate

OPen a blank layer

Set the layer mode to Color

Sample good tone next to the red stain and paint over it

Just a quick way there are others.

Good luck Butch

Re: Red stains in B&W twins photo

Hi there

The stain cannot be removed using my original technique… but there are always many ways.

I duplicated the background then used apply image and applied the red channel at 80 percent.

Desaturated this layer then just used the healing brush and clone to blend and remove the damage.

Then a levels adjustment to darken slightly

I used noiseware to reduce the paper texture.

It would be easy to add back tone if desired.

Re: Red stains in B&W twins photo

Daviskw, what an amazing result, I just say: Bravo, Maestro!
And your explanation is so clear, this will be a very good practice for me... Bad thing I don't have that healing tool, it seems it came since PS CS2. Neither have Noiseware, so it could be a litle harder, I don't know.
Thanks a lot, friend.
