Re: Faded Photo, mostly red channel

Wow, great response. It helps a lot to find out how far one can go with global corrections for this type of problem. IIRC, the dress color was burgundy. Now I can move on and make detail adjustments like lightening the irises, improving contrast, etc. The background color is not very appealing and I may try to find a better shade.

Thanks,
Ted

Re: Faded Photo, mostly red channel

Hi Metakrome,
Sometimes when I want to know in which direction to go i'll try the Image/ Adjustment/Variation... (need to offset the red with cyan one way or another)
Once in variations..I used the following settings: clicked
more: cyan-cyan-yellow-blue-cyan-cyan..ok
then used the HUE/Sat adj...Saturation +32
then a slight bright curve (pulled to the top/left corner a little)
Then ran a portaiture plugin (default) to soften the pixelization due to compression and feel of the image...

You can pretty much clean it up using only the color balance:
cyan/red: -100
magenta?green: +8
yellow/Blue: -6

Hue/sat adjustment: +20
slight lighten curve

Re:remove red colour cast

Swampy's snap neutral midtones removed most of the red colour cast. Used the shadow highlight filter in photoshop cs3 to lighten the background.Softened the image using imagenomic portraiture an add on photoshop filter. Adjusted skin colour using new fill adjustment layer selective colour.

Re: Faded Photo, mostly red channel

Great shot to try a few cast removal methods, then adjusted colors and saturation with Selective Color adj layers, darkened the BG and added some sharpening. The B&W was done with the new B & W filter in CS3 and softened a bit.

Thanks tell. I am quite impressed with the new filter in CS3. The control with/of each color reminds me of Russell Brown's technique.

Cheers!

Great job with this!
