Ballerina lips and curtians

My wife said the curtians were a teal green color and I was trying to move her lips to more of a natural lip color. Any suggestions.

Re: Ballerina lips and curtians

I'm no expert
In fact still very new to this
My thoughts were that recolouring would be the easiest way

Would love to hear the experts methods

Hi smurfing, I am no expert and I used your image along with the original to do a quick hack.

Here is what I did : I opened the original image in photoshop 7, pasted your image as a new layer which I set to color mode. I then flatened the image. Adjusted levels. Then I applied the free plugin Multiple Histogram Equalization with a radius of 128 which I then faded at 10% in multiply mode. That's it.

Took a sample from the hair (colour) and created a new layer in colour blending mode and changed the colour of the lips, sampled a coloured part of the curtain and recoloured curtains by adding a new blank layer in colour blending mode and painting. Same with floor. Finished off with a levels adjustment and then used a red photo filter to give some more tonal quality to the skin and finally a levels adjustment

Did a histogram level adjustment, then manually coloured each area as necessary. Contrast adjustment and overall colour balance.

Re: Ballerina lips and curtians

Your image had some yellow staining, which I took out with a masked hue/sat adjustment layer. The result was pretty much colorless, so I re-colored the whole thing using masked curves and selective color layers. Sharpened gently and finished off with a BW layer, reds and cyans darkened a tad, set to luminosity. Did your wife say what color the dress was? It could have been any pale shade.

You've done a beautiful job Lurch, if you don't mind there is a patch on the girl right arm.

I have played around with selective levels & curves adjustments + some noisware.
