how to make fading background homogenous

hi,

i got 10 pictures. they have a fading background from white to light-beige.
in the front is a model, standing.

is there any easy way, one-click-like, to make the backround free of the big blurred spots and stains in the roundwall? the spots are very light, you cant hardly see them, but if you want you can see, thats the problem,

i am doing it manually in the moment, with a big soft brush and copy even areas to the non-even. but it takes much time.

thanks

It would help if you could post the image.

hi pure,

i would think, with such strong contrasts in colors there, that you could simply use a FILL brush. sample the white you want to keep and simply use a FILL. if it tends to run into the red a bit, why just make a feathered selection first and then FILL.

whats a fill brush sorry?

is it the thing i use? only know the german expression, it looks like a stamp.
its a bit diffcult to fill somehing there, as the gradient fades to white above also ground is white. also there is the model. and i dont want to extract here only because of that. hm. any filter? i tried blur. hm

pure,

see the attached. this is a screenshot in paint shop pro, but it's going to be pretty much the same in photoshop. sometimes it's called FILL and sometimes PAINT BUCKET or something close to that.

i did mine with the FILL at a 21% tolerance. the tolerance sets how much differentitation between the color you're using and the colors that it fill vary.

also, you REALLY need to get this german language version thing sorted out. MOST of your posts are because you simply cant read or translate the version you're using. you shld be able to go to the adobe site and get a .pdf version of the manual for free....IN A LANGUAGE YOU CAN READ! i just hate seeing you struggling with something that is keeping you from doing what you really want to do. get the version of the manual you can read! we love to help, but something like this vexes all of us, especially you. so, let's get this sorted out.

sure, sorry for this. i know what the fill is now.

actually i meant it different:

the gradient in the back should remain as is,
i only would like to make it even and look homogenous. there are bigger and medium big blur spots in the gradient, which seem to be a bit darker, you can hardly see them only if you look around (not the small ones, these i can remove manually)

probably you know what i meant...

thanks

I went though the blue channel and cleaned it and then selected that part of the channel (without the red) and copied it into the the other channels and this is what I turned out with. From there you could fill it with a gradient in layers.
