Hi C.

I tried to enlarged the picture puting less resolution and increasing the image side but it seems the same. I can upload more than 100,0 Kb. Any Tip for me?

Thanks.

Flora has words of wisdom for resizing.

It's easy enough if you use Photoshop - Save for Web

Re: Fixing this one

Your image is much to small to work on properly, but here is the process you can follow with a higher quality version if you have one and any version of Photoshop.
Duplicate the background layer. Then with the copy active, go Image>Apply Image. When the dialog box comes up, select as the source, the Blue channel of the background layer and make sure the blend mode is set to Normal (I think the default is multiply). Your layer will become gray. Now change the Blend Mode of the layer from Normal to Luminosity. Guess what - the image will still look preety much like the original with the red stains, yes. However, the luminosity will be equalized. Now add a new blank layer on top of the image and change the Blend Mode from Normal to Color. Activate your paint brush. Move the brush to an area adjacent to the red stain, which has good color. Hold down the Alt key which will change you brush to the Eyedropper tool. Sample the good adjacent color by clicking it. Now release the Alt key and paint over the Red. Move around the image sampling and painting. You should be able to easily get rid of the red. Here is a 2 minute brush over I did but I did not try to be accurate since the orig image is too small and too pixelated.
In future if you are trying to post a larger image, take the best image you have and the use the Image>Size to adjust the size to approx 8 x 6 inches at 72 ppi and save as a jpg on the highest quality setting that will keep you under the 100KB limit. This will usually be at level 7 or 8 which is usually good enough for members to work on.

Re: Fixing this one

Hi there

I did my example a different way but i think it is pretty easy.

I first duplicated the background

Then used the B&W adjustment layer to remove color and used the red slider to darken the red area to match the rest of the picture.

I then combined this adjustment layer with the duplicate and changed to layers mode to Luminosity.

I then added blank layers at the top of the pallet and changed their modes to color... I sampled good adjacent color then painted the red out.

Re: Fixing this one

Hi Butch, your method to generate a "luminosity adjustment" layer worked well with the B&W. This image was somewhat rare in that the Blue channel was already very uniform. Usually the damage affects all 3 channels and you need a different approach. The B&W adj layer is a great tool for this as it will often avoid having to make delicate selections.
