Help please on light leak damaged slide
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm sure that this question must have come up before, but I couldn't find any posts on this, so please bear with me. I would appreciate any help in learning how to fix slides or negatives that have been exposed to light, probably during the loading of the film, like the one attached. This was probably a case of not advancing the leader enough after loading the camera. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Bill

Just for fun I duplicated the file then cropping to the right side.

Then used match color with the original...got it pretty close.

Then a little healing brush and clone and noise reduction.

Hi Bill

Welcome to Retouch Pro

If you look at the channels you will see the right side of each channel is lighter than the left side.
I used levels to equal the right and left sides

Once this is done you will notice that the red channel is poor.

I used channel mixer to make a new luminosity layer from the green and blue channels.

Once the colour was put back I added a new layer to colour in the damaged areas

If you need more help take a look at the bottom of this page where pictures with similar faults are listed.

Hope this helps

Ken.

Very good job Ken...I was too lazy to recolor but even if I had I could not match yours.

Hi

Thanks for your comments Swampy and Butch.

I looked in the tutorial section and there is no tutorial on light leaks so if Bill gives his permission to use this picture I guess I could write one.

Would anyone else be interested in a tutorial?

Ken.

Nice work Ken, I'm sure there's a number of people would like to see a tutorial on what you did.

Ken, you did an outstanding job! I find a really high % of images requiring restoration have the problem of "tone damage", sometimes with and without color shift. Light leaks are one cause but you find the same effect on images which have liquid spills, fading due to asymetric light exposure, camera lens flare, and others. I think a tutorial would be well received and appreciated by all.
Regards, Murray
