Discolouration area treatment

Hi all,

I'm revisiting this image after a while away from retouching. The image is actually from the RetouchPro challenge galleries from a while back. I have a two fold request. First, I am stuck on what to do with the, highlighted, dark areas that mark the background and face and not sure what to do/how to approach it. Second of all I'd love for critique of my work so far.

Thank you

Re: Discolouration area treatment

Well perhaps its better to convert it to a black and white and later on put the color back at the very end of the restore job. Look at each channel. I selected the red channel and used a channel mixer adjustment layer and started from there. On the face you can carefully dodge the dark areas using a soft brush.

I used Neat Image to remove some of the texture and it could be a good use for the FFT filter which I don't have.

I replaced the background.

I've posted a very rough 5 minute draft. But I used the steps as described.

add a new empty layer then do edit, fill that layer would turn grey then do soft light in layer mode and use a soft brush in white go over the stain make sure it matches the right side.

hope this helps

Re: Discolouration area treatment

it looks like you've done a good job on cleaning up the specks. try philbach's method on the dark stain area. you might also try an fft filter to get rid of the paper texture pattern.
