Well, Wm., I find PhotoImpact 8 to be a very capable editor. Of course I've been using it for over 5 years. Nowadays one can get it for nothing or peanuts! It certainly does not have all the handy bells and whistles that Photoshop does, so I'm sure it takes me much longer to do things. Wizard? Determined perhaps, but...

I'd upgrade to Photoshop, but for two simple reasons; 1) I can't afford it with my meager disability income and 2) since I derive no income from my efforts, I'd rather spend my time actually working on images than learning a new editor.

If some kind person would like to contribute Photoshop CS3 to worthy cause, however, I'd welcome the gesture.

Thanks, Tommy. I don't know that I did anything particularly different. I did end up with some rather unusual curves though. I initially went for correcting the skin tones and contrast. What didn't fall into place at that point did require some additional selective adjustments.

Re: Color Repair

Well I did most of the color in lab for some reason. Using the Lightness channel to increase contrast and adjusting the A and B channels. I cloned the edges.

To get the right color this time of the day in partial shade I sort of imagined a family gathering I was at a long while back.

Re: Color Repair

Hi all
After examining all the fine renditions here I took another run at it myself.
What I did was get as close as I could in raw(which wasn't close at all). In photoshop I made a copy and used the overlay mode. After that I used curves and a spot on the sidewalk to balance grey. Used 4 different hue sat layers one for blue, green, skin and the sidewalk where it was blue. I got as close as I could to each color with the sliders and then masked out the overflow. I finished up with two vignettes and an unsharp mask on another layer set to darken. Finally used levels to expose for the skin and clothing and then masked it out in the trees and sky.
I've gotten closer with ya'lls help then I ever have before (been working on this on and off for 3 years) so thank you for that. I'm still not entirely happy with the color, it's the green that is killing me now. Philback your green is spot on I think but the rest of the colors, notably skin tones are washed out. Great green though!

Edit* Forgot to mention, somewhere in ther I actually went out and grabbed a handfull of lawn for referance.

Re: Color Repair

Good job, Wm. It's hard to color correct when you can remember what each and every tone should be and want to match all of them!

Re: Color Repair

Here is my try

I first used "Apply Image" option and repaired the Red and Green Channel.

Then used green color with Color blending mode with 47% opacity to remover color cost.

finally some adjustment with levels and Color Balance.
