Re: How can the pinkish stuff be removed

Hey Lurch! I have a question for you. I am fairly new to Photoshop retouching, but have come across many occasions when seniors advice to change to different color modes like you have advised to move to lab mode initially here. The thing is how would I know for myself when to change to which color mode and for what kind of image.

Re: How can the pinkish stuff be removed

Unfortunately, there isn't a quick fix for this one.
I selectively applied different settings of HSL & curves to different parts of the picture + Some cloning & D&B. It still need some work...

Re: How can the pinkish stuff be removed

@John - after I went to bed last night I remembered one omitted step. That was to invert the mask channel so it would reveal the correction in the right places. That's best done before contrast enhancement.

@rv1589 - The first thing I usually do is look for channels with contrast in the stained areas. If RGB doesn't have any, I check the Lab and CMYK modes, with an eye to what I can get out of the calculations command. Unfortunately there isn't any rule of thumb to guide this; just fiddle around - play with calculations and you'll learn what works. Cricket1961 is a master with calculations. Check out his blog.

Re: How can the pinkish stuff be removed

Hi All - I haven't read this forum in a few months, but decided to swing by this morning and spotted this old thread. I never had to deal with this particular type of damage before, so decided to try my hand at this restoration.

My approach was to:

1. Import the image using ACR 6. Brighten, remove some noise, reduce contrast (used "recovery" to reduce oily shine, "fill light" to fill in the deep shadows), tweak the areas of good color, and a bit of sharpening all in this one initial step.

1. Select the discolored areas using Asiva Select.

2. Use a combination of color balance + hue / sat adjust to remove most of the pink / magenta cast from the selected areas.

3. Fix, as needed, any remaining pink with the clone tool set to color, and/or reduce the effects of step 2 by painting in black on a mask for step 2.

4. Down-rez for web, sharpen using smart sharpen.

5. I didn't feel like dealing with recovering part of the hair, so I just ignored that part of the restoration, but introducing hair texture is pretty straightforward.

It was an interesting challenge. Certainly not trivial.

Cheers,

Tom M.

PS - Sorry for the quality=3 jpg. If I went any higher, I would have exceeded the 100k limit, and I didn't feel like down-rez'ing below 800 px wide. Arghhh.
