Re: Stain

Welcome back Neb

Just worked on the stain nothing else.
Used channel mixer set to monochrome, Accepted the default values and saved.
Hope this helps

Re: Stain

Thank You Peter. Now that I have that problem solved I have another. Is there anyway you or someone can help me with the girl on the top in the middle? I can not see her dress top to know how to repair and then I need advice on how to work on her neck. I did some cloning and it looked quite awful. Looked like it was painted one color . Do you have step by step instructions
Thanks Again Neb

PS: Here is a bigger one to work on.

Re: Stain

i thought i would give this a try. i used the clone brush set to lighten and darken, patch tool, and the blur tool. Here is a link to the finished photo.

Re: Stain

To remove the stain I used the Hue/Saturation..pulled the saturation to -100.
With regards to her neck/shirt I cut and pasted from one side of the neck to the other. dis the same with the shirt..then soft cloned (60% opacity) to make them look different.
The trick I think is to clone from as close as possible to the problem and build your way in..If you use a 60-75% opacity its easy to bluid texture and color.

Just touched up a little..
Good luck with it.

Re: Stain

Hi, Neb , nice to see you back.

Just a quick nitpick (as always):
Reducing the saturation to zero works pretty well in this case, because the stain is in the Blue channel and, when you use the default greyscale conversion, only 10% of the Blue channel gets used.
A better way would be to convert to greyscale using the channel mixer, with 50% Red and 50% Green.
As to the neckline, there is no quick fix, either copy from something similar or let loose you artistic skills and paint it in.

All the best,

Re: Stain

Thanks 001 Lasa and Ro . Suggestions worked great!! I am happy with the results. Now on to the third and final help question. I used the coloring B&W tutorial in retouch tutorials and it worked very nicely. But when I went to print the final product, it printed black and white, the color was missing?? I am supposing I am missing something to do with the quick mask part when saving? Can anyone help with this?? Thanks Neb

Re: Stain

neb,

are you printing from a file with layers or one that is merged and just has the background? if the former, then you need to merge the layers first or pick a layer that is a 'finished' one (with all the data from the other layers where you've worked) and print from that. the printer will not combine your layers when printing.

and are you printing from within ps or from some other source?

Re: Stain

Hi Craig:
I am printing from ps . I am also using the file with layers and have not merged them. Also I used the tutorial in retouch pro and I do not like the color greens it comes up with . Is there another tutorial where I can get a better color of my choice? I used the tutorial for coloring a black and white image. Nice tutorial but not enough choice for color. Am I missing something. Thanks Neb
