You're there in spades Ken! Good work. I'm going to do it all again to see where Theninja is getting the green thing from.

Cheers
Dave

Follow the tutorial. Choose a white collar for the neutral colour.
And Post your results

OK. That is actually a lot better. The collar is now grey not green so you have removed the overall cast.

You cannot use auto levels on this picture as the frame throws things off.
Open a levels adjustment layer and put these numbers in

Red 31 1.00 165
Green 32 0.60 163
Blue 65 0.60 147

You should now have something resembling the other postings here.
Hope this helps.

Ken

Scanner problem ?

I noticed something. If you look at the photo I posted the green cast seems to be on the frame as well. Is this an illusion?

Well Done. That is a massive improvement.

What next??? Now there is a question

As I see it you have three options.

1) Call it finished and stop here (Highly Recommended)

2) Play with the levels sliders and see if you can improve on the
numbers I gave you

3) If your still reading you have two more options

3A) If you are naturally gifted in colour then search this site for Flora’s Posts and spend the next few months reading and learning how Flora does Skin tones

3B) If you are not naturally gifted in colour then search this site for Duv’s Posts and spend the next few months reading and learning how Dave does Skin tones


I am posting your steps. So that others can follow just in case you delete the links.
1) Original
2) After Doug’s Tutorial
3) After Levels Adjust

Most people would skip step 2. But it’s so quick and easy that I use it a lot

Thanks Ken..I think. Hi Scott..not sure where Scott came from but glad to know ya! I think with your correction there still is too much cyan. I've quickly tried to adjust what you have done..definetly not the end game but might help you a bit. I've attached a Cyan curves adjustment, result followed by some sampling of some corrected skin and painting in Color mode the hair, background and fringing of the faces, eyes, etc. Hope it helps a bit.

Cheers
Dave
