Re: Color adjust ?

Can you post the original untouched image?
The reason I'm asking is that doing the Auto Level actually can remove information that could help in restoring the image...

Re: Color adjust ?

Well I worked on the first image you posted. I selected the boy and replaced the background. That seemed to be the easiest way.

Re: Color adjust ?

Ok did a fast and dirty job on the face. Removed some nastiness then selected the face and then copied to new layer then used average filter. Blended the layer down using hue mode that gave me a nice even skin colour. I then dodged and burned the original layer to even out the skin.
Then did the same for the background image 2

Re: Color adjust ?

If you add a Photo Filter Layer, sample an area of cheek and invert the colors, you can neutralize the cast. I stopped here but from here you can fine tune the skin color and clean up the image.

Re: Color adjust ?

neutralized the caste by averaging the image and setting it as the gray point.
Patch tooled my way around the image. painted in the hot spot on his chin.
Ran the image thru noise program to smooth it out a tad. Got rid of the purple coloring by painting the top corners with the same color as the middle background set to color...then added noise.

Something like that.

Re: Color adjust ?

Hi there

I used selective color and levels to change the red hue toward yellow.

Then a blank layer to paint the remaining magenta caste in the background.

Then some clone and healing brush

Finished with a noise filter and sharpen

Re: Color adjust ?

Used a color cast adjustment by sampling the offending color and placing it on a separate layer which I then Inverted. I then used the Overlay which removed most of the cast. Then a little smudge and clone tool. Took very little time. Obviously could be tweaked more.
