It may be based on denatured alcohol but Binaca and Amway's Sweet Shot mouth fresheners work like hot damn as well.

Cheers

denatured alcohol

I am a little scared about the denatured alcohol ,Binaca or Amway's Sweet Shot . I will try it on a old picture. But why didn't the blue channel work? I would like to know more about the Define plugin from Nik. What esle does it do? Did you order it off the inernet? I am thinking about getting it.

"Define is a plugin from Nik which has several options one of which is for skin smoothing."

ekk. Denatured alcohol. Yes. Binaca and Amway Sweet Shot. These are breath fresheners. You shouldn't be "too" concerned. Years ago I used to work for Amway. Had a big executive meeting in the morning. Had an itch on my chest and pulled my pen out to scratch. Unfortunately, the nib was out. White shirt blue ink. Yikes. Sweet Shot worked great. The problem with the original tread and pic is that there is "very" little info to work with in the blue channel, it's just "too" dark. If someone knows how to recover this pic in PS, I really want to know how. Otherwise, we're trying to find solutions outside of PS. I "do" assure that you will survive a breath freshener.

Cheers

I have used denatured alcohol before with no ill effects. But if you use *anything* on a photo, always put it on a corner where there's nothing to lose if something goes wrong. And remember that just because ill effects don't show up right away, doesn't mean that they won't show up next month or next year. If it's something really important, it's always better to consult with a conservator.

<sigh> Please do not use compounds of unknown archival qualities on images. And especially do not use compounds that contain dyes.

Sure, Google image search

And our own Archives, of course.

That looks good where did you get the nose? I had a picture of his daughter and took her nose but could not get the color right. I know you have that software if you didn't have it could you still make the colors blend ?
