Re: Correcting sky banding, smudge, & haze

The banding at LHS seems to only exist in the red channel (of course, I'm only looking at the tiny file). If so, this shouldn't be too hard to fix - just work on the red channel by itself.

The neg was in a film holder on the scanner bed. I was pretty careful to ensure the neg (part of a strip of film, actually) was properly held. Since I developed the film myself, the smudge could be a development problem. I'm not able to conveniently look at the negative, right now, but I'll check that in the future.

In fact, I'm sure of it as other images on the same roll also have these markings, in the same location, indicating improper development on that part of the film on the reel.

I could clone out the smudge, but with the banding in the sky, it's impossible to get a clear sample to clone.

I haven't worked with individual color channels, before, so I need to read up on that. Maybe something in RetouchPRO I can access. The only places I've dealt with individual channels is in Levels, for example.

Your advice has been helpful. Thanks.

Re: Correcting sky banding, smudge, & haze

I deleted the post containing the original photo because I had difficulty adding a second photo, showing the corrections I made by following Damo's advice.

I decided to add a new post with both photos, but RetouchPRO won't accept first photo, saying I already added it. This, even though I deleted first post with the attachment. I changed title of the original attachment, but RPRO still says it was already added.

Can anyone help me? RPRO needs a help page for newbies like me. Posting this to this forum is the next best thing.

BTW, I don't like people making fun of my problems trying to work with this Website. If you want to make fun of me, do it privately between yourselves, & please add me to your "Ignore" list if my problems bore you.

chillin, No luck. When I try to attach, it says I already have an attachment. So, one part of RPRP says I have an attachment, another part says I don't.

Did what you advised, but RPRO still says I've already attached it in this thread. BTW, I've changed the title before with the same result.

Unhappy Re: Correcting sky banding, smudge, & haze

Silence. Isn't it great when you plead for help? Where's the moderator of this forum? I'm not going away, at least not yet.

Moderator: Tell me why, on the Photo Restoration listing of threads in the forum, that my thread still shows an attachment that should have been deleted when I deleted the post to which it was attached. Better yet, delete that attachment, if you can.

Get it out of there, so I can make a new post, including that attachment along with a second attachment I want to add. RPRO is not letting me do this.

Note the "f" under the Rating column for this thread. Can you delete it?
I tried starting a new thread, thinking the problem was related only to this thread. Alas, RPRO has branded me with this attachment forever, it seems.
