Dirty White Seamless

Well the seamless was not actually dirty but boy it caught lots of color casts! I took this picture outside and the sun was behind me so I had to use my black fleece to keep the sun from shining through the seamless. Now I do not have a clean seamless. I have tried many different ways to get a more consistent background, but it is taking way to much time. I have a LOT of these pics to edit!!

Any suggestions on an easy & fast way to get a consistent white background???

Re: Dirty White Seamless

Use selective color to remove the color cast and then use the dodge tool, or try to add a vignetting!

Re: Dirty White Seamless

I inverted the image & removed white, inverted back & placed it on top of a white layer. I applied some more tweaks using levels, HSL & curves.
Whats left is to retouch the baby.
