Re: Me and my sibs

Thanks albatross. These just keep getting better. This one seems to have the overall color in it, or at least what seems "true" to me. I like it! Thanks!

Re: Me and my sibs

Albatrosss,
I like your second version, too. I know this is probably a dumb question, but what exactly do you mean by copying the blue channel to the red? My "channel" knowledge is a bit lacking. Thanks!

Diane,

Forget copying the channel. I believe the 2nd photo is better than the first and I did not copy the channel. If you would like me to elaborate on copying a channel and substituting it for another let me know.

Thanks Albatross, I'd love to know about the channel copying. I've tried to use channels for color fixes, but it has me confused most of the time.

Try this tutorial. It uses LAB but there are others that use RGB. Try this one. If you would like to use RGB instead of LAB I'll walk you through it.

Make sure you read the very last sentence of the tutorial. Once the channel is substituted you still have to work on the color.
