Re: Orange spots

ok, i corrected the reds. a bit of color balance, hue/sat and curves (for the black and white points). i also masked the background and ran hue/sat on it and the foreground separately. i didnt want to lose the reds in the paneling while i reduced them on his skin.

i also cropped the shot, both for a better look and to give a better posting here.

Re: Orange spots

Everyone here worked wonders on this one. I've redone it about 10 times now. I think I'm finished but not completely happy with it.
I was having a problem with chair ending up with no texture left to it so I did some selections. Selected James and ran Neat Image on him. Used curves on him, just used PSP automatic color balance then unsharp mask.
It's probably not the best way but I also did a hue to target on the chin area that was looking too yellow.
I then selected the paneling and did a mild amount of Neat Image on it.
I left the chair alone. I think I also added a very small amount of noise back.
His face still looks a little plastic to me and maybe there's too much contrast.
I'm really loosing perspective on it at this point.
I'm using Paint Shop Pro so the methods some of you used with such good results are foreign to me but thank you so much for all of the input.
Nan

Re: Orange spots

looks good, nan.

one thing, though. if you're using psp 9, 10 or 11, i'd substitute the neat image for psp's own digital camera noise removal tool. it's easier to work with and will get as good, if not better, results as neat image. and it's generally better to err on the side of under-doing noise removal tools. they leave a distinctive blur effect which is evident on your rendition.

Re: Orange spots

Thanks Craig. I'm using PSP version 8 so I don't have that. I also don't use Windows XP yet so I the other versions aren't an option for me right now.
I really hate the blur but for now I'm stuck with it.
Thanks again,
Nan

Re: Orange spots

Used NOISEWARE PRO plugin.
Its subtle but it cleans it up while still leaving a film look to it.
You don't want to eliminate all noise nor sharpen until halos..
