Re: removing color cast

Hi John,

I took the easy road

Levels adjustment layer, bring the individual channels into the majority of the information.

New Layer>Fill>R 203 ... G 150 .... B 115 ... Image>adjustments>invert. Take the blend mode of the layer to colour and drop the opacity to about 20%. Hue/Sat adjustment layer, boost the sat of the image to what you like.

Go on from there to do any more fixing, levels etc.,

Re: removing color cast

I used Swampy's method of copy layer, filter->blur->average and then invert and set to overlay mode 3 times, then a final levels adjustment

Hi Liz. The 5-4-3 rule is the ratio of red to green to blue in the skin tones. Here's a link that will explain it better. I hope this helps

Re: removing color cast

I used color balance and variations to start, then a lot of other plays to the point where I lost tract but here's the result.

Re: removing color cast

first thing for me was to brighten things up a bit. no contrast, just brighten. then adjust the colors, and then a bit of enhancing and cleanup.

so,

1. brighten/contrast adjustment layer 50/0

2. color balance adjustment layer, mostly to take the reds down and add a bit of blue on the shadows, midtones and highlights.

3. a tiny bit of clarify to bring some better contrast, but just a tiny bit. +2

4. usm at 2/100/5 for a bit of sharpness.

5. a bit of clone to take out the tear/fold mark, the bad upper right corner and a bit of speck/dust here and there throughout.

i also like the idea of cropping here, though i didnt do it, since i wanted to show all work done.

Re: removing color cast

I 1st cut down the red in hue/saturation, then used Photokit Color to nuetralize
and did some cloning, brighten, sharpen, some noise reduction.

Re: removing color cast

First I corrected the white balance...swampy method...
Then I opened levels and adjusted the the individual colors until I got something I liked
Then I when to saturation to pump up the color slightly..
Then I used unmask (just a tad) to sharpen...

Re: removing color cast

Wow,

Thanks for all of the great work I am heading off to work but will read more of the replies later. It's obvious I have a lot to learn yet in photoshop.

What is this 5-4-3 Rule anyway?

John
