Re: The dreaded scotch tape stains

I, too, would like to hear more about "frequency separations & curves". I will search for it, as well. Here is the tape problem I'm having (attached). It seems like solutions for B&W photos don't always apply to color photos?

Re: The dreaded scotch tape stains

Quartney, welcome to RetouchPro! I have started a separate thread so that CDaniel's thread is not hijacked unintentionally.
The same solutions (Curves, Dodge & Burn, Heal, Clone, Frequency Separation) apply to color just as they do to B&W. However, some adjustments like D&B result in shift of color and saturation so you may have to add a layer for color correction.
Regards, Murray

This one is presents a little more complex problem. There's a subtle colors combination going on. I had to use Frequency Separations method twice. More information & an action download you can find here.
Next, I used "leuallen's" Configurator panel for retouching, its a D&B 2 curves method. But any D&B method would do it. Here is a link to that panel.

I have attached a final result, low frequency before/after, high frequency before/after and layers for frequency separation & D&B.
