Re: Old department store color fade problem.

Thought I'd get on the bandwagon and give it a try. Everything done with curves adjustments, hue/saturation layers and a final tweak in Color Efex Pro 4.

Cheers,

Kevin

Re: Old department store color fade problem.

I used Photoshop CS6 to color correct the image.
1/ I flipped the image into CMYK since I find it a easier to fix skin tones there.
2/ I used four curve adjustment layers and masks to separate; overall color cast (excluding skin), skin, eyes,and teeth.
3/ I created a stamped visible layer and some unsharp masking to sharpen the image using the HiRaLoAm approach.

Re: Old department store color fade problem.

Hi George
I'm experiencing similar problems copying old negatives. They all have colour casts. Many worse than yours. My first step is nearly always to use the Channel Mixer to restore the histogram to something like normal. I find that this gives me a good start to fixing any colour casts.

Using Adobe Camera RAW 8 / HLS adjustment only Reds, Oranges & Yellows react to moving sliders from -100 to +100. Greens, Aquas, Blues, Purples & Magentas sliders have no effect.

I can adjust in Photoshop CS6 to the point where flesh-tones are better but the backdrop looks unreal. Still has a red cast.

There must be a way to add back what has faded but kinda lost. Need some direction how???

I appreciate all suggestions,
George
