Here is my crack at it. I basically follow Floras steps, but did more cloning, lowered the hue/sat and added a sepia tone. I tried!

Craig,

Thank you so much for your kind words, but specially for what is behind them!!!

Sorry I must have misunderstood your question .... Yes, a Channel Mask is simply a Mask created on one of the channels and it is based on the 'luminosity' or 'luminance' of that particular channel ... as for Layer Mask, yes again ... it is simply any mask created for or copied to a Layer ....

My native language is Italian ... the rest came later ... thanks to schools and the 'gypsy' kind of life I've led since I was 19 ....

Jen,

Great job!!
Just a tad too smooth in the lighter parts of the image (woman and baby's dresses)

flora,

you're welcome

and thank you; i kept reading in the forums about 'channel masks' and 'layer masks' and thought this must be something special in photoshop, but wasnt sure.

native italian... ok, thanks. and i think a lot of artistic folks have a bit of gypsy in them. myself, i've been 'all over', from hawaii to japan to viet nam to florida to taiwan to california to canada, etc. seems to come with the spirit

Craig

How could I correct that Flora? Could I use a mask and use a sof brush with a low opacity and paint it back?

Either that, or run Neat Image (supposing that's what you used ...)on selections as described in this Tutorial.

The example in the Tutorial is about Luminosity and Shadow Masks ... but, of course, it works with any selection you make ...

Jen, do you mean the Neat Image dialog box in the Tutorial (PS plug-in) or the Neat Image dialog box I posted here (Demo version)? ....

Anyway, both versions have the RGB Option .... in exactly the same position as shown in my attachment on this same Thread ...

Flora I think the demo version. It's on my desktop and i have to open a image everytime i use it, therefore i always end up with about 4 pictures of the same image. I'm learning as I go!
