Re: Restore Old Photo (taken in the 70's)

Florin, excellent restoration. On my monitor there appeared to be alot of yellow in the white lace of her dress. Examining those areas in LAB color (+5 to +10 in the B channel; 0 in the A Channel) confirmed this to be the case. So I added a Hue/Sat layer to remove the yellow. I did the same for the teeth and eyeballs.
Regards, Murray

Re: Restore Old Photo (taken in the 70's)

Thank you Murray. Yes, could be. I did it after have been working some 5-6 hours with another restoration for a client. When my vision is so tired I have many times some difficulties with the white or shigning tones, I see sometimes large brilliance spots on the screen and have to stop the work for a while. That´s bad but is part of the work. Working 4-5 hours in the gray scale is really tough for the vision, the white tones are like poison for the eyes.
Thank you for your help
Cheers

Re: Restore Old Photo (taken in the 70's)

Florin, yes, I can relate very well to that problem. After many hours the eyes become weary and are prone to seeing what the brain wants. I find before declaring the work on an image complete that running the eyedropper in LAB around critical areas reveals color casts and anomalies that the tired eyes miss.
Regards, Murray

Re: Restore Old Photo (taken in the 70's)

Once I have used the usual methods to neutralize the color casts, I too prefer a 'hands-on' approach to recolouring. I painted each colour on separate layers in color mode, saved them to alpha channels and then made various adjustments to each regarding hue, saturation, contrast, etc. The extraction was with the use of the quick selection tool, added to/subtracted from with quick mask mode and refined the selection with Refine Mask.
