Wow, thanks everybody!!!!

...and sorry for getting back to this Thread so late....

What I did here was:

*Duplicated the background.
*Select>Color Range>Reds
(All what follow can be seen in Attachment 1 ... my workflow)

*With the selection active, I created a Levels AL and on its Mask I painted black the right most part to protect the skin colour on that part of the father' face.

*Levels 1 values:

Input Levels,
RGB: 0 ; 1.00 ; 220
RED: 98 ; 0.47 ; 229
GREEN: 0 ; 1.05 ; 193
BLUE: 0 ; 0.87 ; 189

*followed by: (as you can see from Attachment 1, I adjusted the mask for every following AL)

*Selective Color 1:

REDS:
Cyan> +77
Magenta> -16
Yellow> +3
Black> +7

MAGENTAS:
Cyan> +100
Magenta> -44
Yellow> -27

NEUTRALS:
Cyan> +16
Magenta> 0
Yellow> -1
Black> 0

BLACKS:
Cyan> +4
Magenta> +22
Yellow> +22

*Levels 2

Input Levels,
RGB: 0 ; 1.00 ; 255
RED: 40 ; 1.99 ; 255
GREEN: 0 ; 1.00 ; 235
BLUE: 12 ; 1.00 ; 223

REDS:
Cyan> +26
Magenta> -3

Black> 0

YELLOWS:

flora,

thank you. sadly, what you did doesnt translate well in what psp can do. the select color thing, for instance. however, the curves does translate and that's something i didnt try, curves with other than rgb. so, that might help.

what i did was a mask with a gradient trying to make the mask gradual depending on how much of that color bleed there was at any given spot and then tried to adjust the red out with channel mixer and color balance, i think. i'll have to go back and take a look now and maybe do the curves on the individual channels.

thanks flora

Craig

ok, i had another go at this. still tricky for me, but better. the individual color curves definitely helped. but, i had to do several masks and adjustments to get it all. i even had to resort to a bit of cloning and push and smudge in a few minor places to touch things up. but better.

Thank You so much for this Explanation/Tutorial
The numbers you have put in this means I can see your steps and understand what you did and why. Being able to see your intermediate steps makes understanding a lot easier.

I have spent all my spare time this week on this tutorial (and the blend if one)

For me this has been the difference between feeling elated that I have matched your results rather than being frustrated because I did not know how to move the sliders

I understand that you don’t normally bother with the numbers but by putting them in this time has made things much clearer to me. I really feel like I could tackle the next one.

My attached picture is not an exact copy of yours because I did this without referring back to your steps. It’s not perfect but I’m quite happy with it.

Thank you again so much for this.


Ken
