Orange spots

Is there any way to get rid of the orange spots on this photo?
It's already blurry and I'm not expecting to be able to correct that but I would like to improve the orange spots if possible.
I'm using Paint Shop Pro and I just don't know the best way to tackle this.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Nan

Re: Orange spots

Well there were a lot of spots. The blue channel seemed to be the most involved. I used Neat Image which helped some and a dash of levels to increase contrast.

Another approach which seemed to work almost as well was to select the blue channel and run surface blur on it.

Re: Orange spots

Thanks Phil,
That's a lot better than what I got. I tried Neat Image but I must need to play with the settings some more. I'll also work on the levels for the contrast.
I know it's a pretty bad photo to start with so I appreciate your time.
Thanks again,
Nan

Re: Orange spots

I switched the photo to LAB mode and gently blurred the a and b channels to get rid of the color noise. Then I changed the photo back to RGB and did levels, hue/sat adjustments. Used Neat Image at very light settings to chuck the rest of the noise. Added an overlay layer with high pass applied to slightly sharpen. Finally did some minute cloning/healing to get rid of last little white spots.

It's not perfect, please let me know if you want my exact settings.

Nice restoration. It looked a tad blue and the white parts of the checked shirt checked out to be blue on the info palette. So I took your image and ran image/autocolor on it.

Re: Orange spots

Thanks Phil. Your tweak makes it much better. I tend to over blue things I work on for some reason, I guess I just like the color blue.

Re: Orange spots

psp's digital camera noise removal, light to medium settings, no sharpening.

unsharp mask.

polaroid's dust and scratch removal, the white specks only.

clone for more specks.

fix his arm with lighten/darken and some very light cloning.

high pass sharpen.

more clone and airbrush to fix a number of other small items.

you could also do a sharpen more on this, but you're going to add a lot of problems with more spots and specks if you do, so i left that out.

i'd also suggest cropping. you dont need all that space above his head and off to the side. this will bring him out more.

Re: Orange spots

Hi there

I blurred the a and b channel in lab then back to RGB for a noise filter. Not sure but I neutralized the white in his shirt and it seemed to remove a lot of red. I am not sure that this is the correct color but it is one that works...lol
