Re: Help!

this would be pretty close to my stage one, find the image. i used a lot of tools to get to this. first, i did a channel mixer. "huh?" you might say. channel mixer? yep. you can use channel mixer to get some contrast going between the channels. i dont use it often, but this image needed all the help it could get.

channel mixer added a bit of a color change and an overall color tint, so, i thought i'd make use of another 'trick' by contrasting color to black and white. for this, i used to 'change to target' brush in psp x2 and painted the gentleman but not the background.

i also did a fade correction, contrast/brightness adjustment layer and a curves layer using the contrast setting and then doing a mild S curve. i also did a color adjust HMS (highlights/midtones/shadows).

to correct the banding across his face, i used psp's lighten/darken brush, darkening the light band while lightening the darker areas till they fairly closely matched. i also used the 'change to target' brush some more for this.

from here, i would probably clone the background first. this is easy work and cleans things up rather quickly making the rest of the job easier.

from there, take your pick, but it would probably be pretty much my standard fare of clone, airbrush and push (heavy smudge).
