More confusion

Sorry to ask again

I am totally stumped as to how I can correct a photo like this - part of the picture attached

I seemed to be getting on so well with my learning - then I was asked to look at this old black and white
I just have no idea where to start
I only enclose part of the photo hoping that your advice can help me to learn how to rectify the whole photo myself

many thx for your time
Smurf

Dodging and burning

ukpapasmurf,

Try this:

1) Set your black, white and gray points with curves or levels.
2) Create a new layer and fill it with 50% gray.
3) Hit the letter "D" to set your foreground and background color to black and white.
4) Set the Blending Mode of your gray layer to "Overlay"
5) With a soft-edged brush, set at 30-40% opacity, paint on the gray layer with black to darken in those white-streaked areas. If you don't get satisfactory results in a few passes, increase the opacity of your brush.

I'm attaching a copy of what it looks like. The adjustment was made on the right side and took just a few passes.

Hi there

Here is another way... I selected an area that was faded, applied a big feather to it then used a cures adjustment layer to darken as needed. Then I used a soft brush with a low opacity and painted on the mask to darken other areas as needed.

I did not spend a great deal of time as it is a small picture but with a little time you can bring it back i believe.
