discolored

A friend wants this photo restored,and I'm having trouble with the orange splotches,way too time intensive with healing and cloning and I'm not too knowledgeable with separating the color channels,any help would be greatly appreciated. Bill

Re: discolored

You could use a channel mixer in "Luminosity" mode, with the check box "Monochromatic" turned on and the red channel accentuated to 100% while the other channels make 0% of the mix.
That should give you an image with splotches, that are less annoying in the luminosity, so after that you can use a new layer on "Color" mode and paint the surrounding color over the orange.

The black channel in CMYK could work as well, but is even brighter.

Re: discolored

Don't worry, I've got plenty of time :-)
Some more dodge & burn, healing and cloning and you should be good to go :-)

A very belated (six years between the first and second post)Welcome to RetouchPRO

Nice work!

Seeing as this is a learning forum....... a work-flow or 'how did you do that?' would help the OP (and me) a lot..

looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Re: discolored

Cat1204, that looks very nice :-)
Although I'm not sure, whether the orange in the background is really background or simply stain.
I'm also not sure about her skin color as it also looks a little orange on some spots.

Other than that: love it!
