Re: First Message & Restoration

Tackled this by using a slight gaussian blur on the blue channel. Did a levels adjustment brightening up the midtones. Using hue/saturation/lightness adjusted the yellows, greens and reds. A further levels adjustment, a bit of cloning out of bright blue spots and finally a very tiny orange photo filter.

I did a repaint. Changed the tee to a brown so the gal would show up better. Toned down a few spots, but they still show a bit.

Looks good! Sometimes it's hard to know exactly how to treat colors (especially in the middle of the night!), but I think you got it right.

Look forward to seeing the final.

This was a great example of how much color information can be recovered from what appears to be virtually a monochrome picture. When I first took a look at it, it looked more like a badly discolored black and white photo than anything else, but the colors just needed to be teased out ...

(If I hadn't just been reading Ctein (chapter 6), I might have given up right then, but that provided enough inspiration to try.)

Re: First Message & Restoration

Hi

Nice work done so far on this one.

Found this one a bit to be a bit above my level, however here is my attempt.

Did a lot of adjustment layers then hue/saturation and finally a light orange filter.

Re: First Message & Restoration

Nice Work Colan. The photo does have a moderate amount of noise and you might want to reduce that with Neat Image or one of the other noise reductions plug ins.
