Removing discoloring

I have this photo and I'd like to know how to remove the discoloring from the picture. I've done some restoration but haven't had to fix something like this. I have a jpg file first and if you want a really big file I have a tif file second.

Re: Removing discoloring

I'm uploading the tif file again because it didn't finish. The jpg file is fine. Here's a smaller version.

Re: Removing discoloring

the jpg one is messed up, the first one you posted looks different then the 2nd smaller one. The picture is really off on the color, I tried working with it a bit. I will try a little more, but it seems like there isn't going to be much help for it.

Re: Removing discoloring

By inspecting the 3 RGB channels, you can see that only the blue is affected (as long as there is only yellow cast in the image, you could have guessed it) So I made a rough attempt by deleting the blue layer and replacing it by duplicating the red (which was the one with best details) and then masking and colorizing with color balance and masks, finishing with levels and channel mixer. The masks are pure crap and the colors are wrong, I know but it's for you to get the idea ;-). Surely other people will have solutions of their own.

PS: once you delete the channel, your image mode turn into multichannel, you got to turn it again to RGB once you replaced the missing channel.

Re: Removing discoloring

4personnen, thanks. I did see the blue channel was crap but I'm not "yet" experienced enough to handle the fix. I'll give this a go and see what I can do.

Re: Removing discoloring

Done quickly working on your small jpg just to demonstrate the potential. As noted, the blue channel contains most of the damage. To the blue channel, apply image (green, normal), then again apply red, add mode (adjust opacity & offset to taste) with sky mask. Then just dab some color on the flesh, jeans, etc.

Lonk, That's great. I like what you did and I'll work on that. I was a cute little bugger long time ago... : )

Re: Removing discoloring

Nice work LonK, how'd you do that?

Ha, this always happens when one don't read first... LonK explains the process there, sorry... I just saw the work he did, and went right ahead to write my question without reading first.
