Thanks...i notice a bit on the grey brick. Should be no problem to get that out.

From Katrin Eismann's book, you can find the part about removing glare from glasses here.

Just scroll down the page to the 'Removing Reflections in Glasses' part ....

"select the red channel. Go to curves and severly warp it to maike the selection black. Click on blue channel. Copy and Paste Into red channel. It should look pretty good. Go back to the RGB channel".

I'm trying to learn as much as I can, but have never worked with channels, so I do not know how to follow the above instructions, can you please elaborate a little more?, where should I click to select the blue channel and how do you copy/paste into any channel....and perhaps recomend a good tutorial about channels, I've seen that they are a powerfull tool in restoration.

Thanks

Hi Mosha,

You can get to the Channels by clicking on the 'Channels' tab. (Figure 1)

Once in the Channels Palette (Figure 2), you can choose and work on each individual Channel by simply clicking on it. (Figure 3)

To copy one whole Channel into another press Ctrl+A to select it, then Ctrl+C to copy and, finally, activate (click on) the (bad) channel you want to replace and press Ctrl+V to paste the copied (good) Channel into the bad one.

Use the same procedure to copy and paste only parts of a Channel into another.. Select the good part with the Lasso or any other selction Tool, Ctrl+C to copy your selection and, activate (click on) the channel with the bad part you want to replace and press Ctrl+V to paste the copied (good) selection into the bad one.

Hope this helped.
