Hi Blu,

here is my way in trying to fix your picture:

1) I looked at the Channels, activated (highlighted) the 'Blue Channel' and used 'Image > Apply Image' with the following values:
Source Channel = Green
Target Channel = Blue
Blending = Multiply
Opacity = 80%


2) Still working on the Channels, I used the 'Levels' to slightly adjust the Red and Green Channels.

3) Selective Color Adjustment Layer for a final tweak on the individual colours.

I didn't touch contrast or brightness because I kind of liked a softer, muted 'Christmasy' light .... but it's only my taste...

Hi Flora,

Thanks for working on my card and telling me how you fixed it. You did a great job. I like the card both soft and bright. Maybe I will have to make two versions of my Christmas card eh? I'm going to work on the card using your technique for the experience.

Blu

Blu, you're not any "trouble". It can take a while to get used to things here because the site has so much to offer. And we'd much rather you participate than sit there trying to memorize the FAQs!

Jeanie
