Re: What's the Cause

Has this image already have some processing applied to it ?

Took the red and yellow out in a hue/sat layer, masked to apply this to the skin area only. Ran through neat image, took opacity down, applied to skin only. Applied film grain, but not to the skin area. Used a warming filter on the skin only, used neat image again (on all the image), brought back the eyes and lips with a mask. Used a curves adjustment layer.

Re: What's the Cause

Hello everyone. Its been a while since my last post. Bcarl, the girl in this still is glowing with happiness. Ive tryed to remove some of the noise by using the channel mixer and decreasing the effects of the green channel. Did also play with selective colour to remove some of the red spots.. Camera technology is smart but needs some more work for inside shots. Im speaking from experience with the lower end cameras and my limited knowledge of photography..

Re: What's the Cause

I want to thank everyone for posting suggestions etc. I tried to remove the noise and was successful using a technique I read here. Thanks for the headsup on Noise nija, never heard of it until now. For those of you that asked if this picture had been processed before the answer is no. I ran it through PS7 just to reduce the size for web posting. This is how it came off the camera and to my desktop PC. A big thanks to all that helped me learn another lesson in restoring a photo.

Re: What's the Cause

I’ve applied twice red spots removal method for reds & magenta.
I reduced the noise 3 times (on a layer, red channel & blue channel), I masked the hair a bit. At the end, I created a high pass filter layer from the green channel & sharpen some details.
