Re: HELP!!! Massive silvering problem on client ph

Is is okay to add a link that was helpful to me? I just went through this double polarizing filter/take a photo of a photo thing on another forum. (Is it okay to tell what it is? I'm new and not sure of forum rules/etiquette ) Someone contributed this link and the visuals were very helpful to me. I'm coming from the point-and-shoot photography background, and was having a hard time figuring out what they were talking about.

Yes, that's the one. Sorry that the link didn't work. I just copied it from the other forum. I thought it was great. You know what they say... a picture is worth a thousand words. On the other hand, on RP, a picture can easily generate a thousand words!

Re: HELP!!! Massive silvering problem on client ph

Here is my stab at it:

1) Boosted Saturation to around 73
2) Channel Mixer - monochrome - set blue at +200%, red at -140
3) This brought out the silvering a lot so I could make a mask from it
4) Copied resulting image to an alpha channel
5) Loaded selection, made a mask from it and added a curves adjustment
6) Tweaked each red, blue, and green channel in curves to remove the tarnish
7) Healed the spots and splotchy areas
8) Set black and white points to fix the tonal range
9) Added Curves adjustment for contrast
10) Made a sharpening mask and painted over faces and areas that needed to be sharpened
11) I didn't make this one a straight B&W, I wanted to keep the original tone

Re: HELP!!! Massive silvering problem on client ph

I find that using the colour replacement brush is very handy on silvering.
You need the middle option of the brush choices(the one like a target).
Go to the picture and choose the silvering colour with the dropper when in the brush mode(blueish usually)then press the X then choose a good rich brown from somewhere unsilvered.
Now paint carefully over the silvered blues which should become browns. Do it in magnified zoom to be sure to cover the blues without making streaks.
