Roger, to my eye, you completely eliminated the demarcation line between the two areas in the waterfall -- Excellent work!

I'm attempting to duplicate your strategy, but I'm having trouble masking out parts of that line.

Great technique. I just tried it out myself and it worked like a charm. I can't wait to try it out on some problem photos I have.

Roger you did a great job. As CJ said you combined the two areas perfectly. I've been playing with the photo as well but as yet don't have it as good as yours.

Roger - you did a wonderful job! I wouldn't have known the image ever had a midline problem!

Thanks,

CJ - It was just general masking / corrections (I had a dark line running horizontally through all of the correcting), then cloned in color mode and normal mode once the color was balanced to remove the horizontal line, then vertical brush strokes on the watefall of white & black on an overlay layer until the water "popped".

Roger -- ahh! Cloning!

(...and I thought you'd figured a method that didn't need it. )
Thanks!

I'm late to the show here, but I have to comment. That is one fantastic method! Much better than fooling around in the channels.

I actually tried it out, twice. The first time using Eyedropper and Paint Brush, the second time cloning from the top using an Aligned Clone Tool set to Color Mode. Each had its advantage.

Anyway, this method is an incredible time saver. It also makes perfect sense to do it this way.

BTW, how did you arrive at the color for the skin tone?

Thanks for your comments. If I remember right, I got the skintones from the skintone chart I picked up here on this forum.

I use Paint Shop Pro, so I don't know if the steps are the same. When I split the image into channels, PSP creates 3 new images, one for each channel. I then click on the channel I want, copy the image, go to the image I am working on, and past as a new layer. An alternate possibility would be to create a new layer on the working image, and paste the copied red channel there.

Hope this helps. If not, let me know and I'll try to provide screenshots.

e.b.,

In PS, make sure you are on a layer which contains the image, i.e. not an adjustment layer. Open the channels palette and click on the red layer to make it active. Ctl-/Cmd-A to select all. Ctl-/Cmd-C to copy. Click on the composite (RGB) channel to make it active again. Go back to the layers palette and Ctl-V to paste. It should paste the red channel into a new layer.

At least, that's how I do it. Somebody probably has an easier way!
