How can the pinkish stuff be removed

Have done a number of restorations but this one really has me stumped. I use PScs3 with my restorations. Would appreciate any advice on how to proceed to removed the pinkish stuff.

Thanks, John

Yes picture is too small a larger file would help and be easy to work with.

Still just shows the thumb

This address might work better: http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?pi...n5tg2SY3ACAYH0

Always try to attach an under 100K picture in the thread so the thread remains useful no matter any external links..

If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described here: Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

Re: How can the pinkish stuff be removed

Found this one quite difficult - not sure what the 'pinkish stuff' is but hope not to see it again

Tried a couple of techniques without success then getting frustrated by lack of progress (and knowledge) came up with the following - only concentrating on the face and hair -although not really happy with the result I think with a lot more care and finesse it could work quite well.

1. On background copy use Color replacement tool on face and hair sampling best colours
2 Apply curve layer to hair and adjust for near match
3.Apply curve layer to face and adjust for near match
4 New layer Clone & heal blemishes
5 Final layer D&B on face

Hope that it may give you some inspiration (even if it is not to try this way ).
I do hope that someone will step up and offer a more elegant solution.

Re: How can the pinkish stuff be removed

Easy way - I converted the image to L*a*b and made a mask of the pink area; added the inverted a channel to the b channel with offset -75, scale 1.3, saved it as a channel, and upped the contrast hugely with levels. Then Gaussian blurred the mask about 5 pixels. Then converted back to RGB.

The key here is remembering that a color image has luminosity and it has color. If the luminosity is right it's a cinch to correct color. So I created a grayscale layer for the photo and set its blending mode to luminosity. Clipped an adjustment layer with the pink spot mask to the luminosity layer and darkened the area that was pink-stained with a curve until the tones matched. That left pattern on the man's shirt somewhat lacking in contrast, so I used another masked, clipped adjustment layer to correct that. Fixed the edges of the masked area, mostly with Photoshop CS5's content aware healing brush. Doesn't work for everything, but when it does it's wonderful.

The last step, on a layer set to color mode, was to brush away the stain by painting with a color mode brush using a color sampled from nearby. Flesh tends to vary in hue and/or saturation, so it's best to use a low-opacity brush and sort of blend colors. Clothing is more forgiving.

Here's my result. Took about as much time as it took to type this one-handed
