Re: Restoring Parent's Wedding album from Fire

Certainly looks like you are on the right track to me. I think that the corrected version still looks a little red in the midtones and yellow in the highlights which you should be able to easily correct.

Careful if you do decide to physically clean any prints as there is a danger of damage to the emulsion particularly with wet cleaning of any type. If you have to go down this route make the best copy you can of the image first prior to cleaning

Re: Restoring Parent's Wedding album from Fire

Several ways to adjust the cast I chose to use Curves on your manipulated image. I also used a colour adjustment layer to paint over the parts of the veil and background that had colour contamination. Then also a global Hue and Sat layer to subdue the reds overall as I felt the skin tones a little too saturated. In doing this I did assume that the wedding dress was actually white rather than ivory or any other off white shade
