Frame marks


I recently came across this picture and wondered how you would tackle frame marks like this successfully & most effectively as I'm having a few problems.

Re: Frame marks

Personally I would not bother with the frame marks as there is very little of interest within this area. I would just colour correct and burn the frame in more as in my attachment.

If you do want to correct then select oval with mask and using curves etc attempt to match as close as possible.

It may be just the reduction but for a pro portrait it looks very soft (although a sf filter may have been employed.

Re: Frame marks

these are always a bit of a challenge. Flora used to do these really well. you might search in this forum for her name and find how she did these.

me, i started with an elliptical selection and using hue/sat, brightness/contrast and anything else i could find to work, i brought the outside area down fairly close, but not exact, to the inside. from there i simply used the 'push' brush to even things out. it's like painting with a smudge brush.

tony made this look like it might have been a color image and perhaps it was. i didnt try. i just let it go to black and white since it was easier to work on that way. during the hue/sat application i simply desaturated it to b&w. one could always colorize it later.

i also added a bit of unsharp mask. the image is fairly blurry.
