Re: Removing Red Spots from Aged Photos

Vcooper, what steps in the process are giving you problems.. my process is lengthy because I went to a pixel by pixel correction in the begininng.. Also,
all the Red dots do not disappear at once.. you have to select each one and use color replacement and even them out by selecting good pixels instead of the red ones..

Adjusting the fuzziness slider will show you many you can fix or mess up..

Remember, I looked at it at full zoom 1600% and not fit in view or 100%..

when I fixed a couple of red spot, I would zoom out and check the work by turning off the visibility on and off of the duplicate layer vs the background... I noticed I had to make a selection around the face or cheek or nose or hand first so as not to affect the whole image...

Also, make sure you eyedropper is set to point sample so it does not average the colors..

You can do it, but be patient, try, try again and it will work..

Remember, I did this part in the beginning so I could get a great sample area to work with so I can use the spot healing brush and patch tool... no cloning at all..

Hope this helps..sorry for delay.. will check later tonight.. ciao

Re: Removing Red Spots from Aged Photos

I took this approach:
Ctrl+J (Copy background) set mode to multiply
Shft+Alt+Ctrl+E (copy all showing to new layer)
Levels
Ctrl+J (copy Layer)
Run Polaroid (free) Dust and Scratch filter on top layer with Light Dust box UN-checked (Default-dark)...
Hide all mask... paint white on mask over red spots
Shft+Alt+Ctrl+E (copy all showing to new layer)
Ctrl+J (copy Layer)
Run Polaroid Dust and Scratch filter on top layer with Light Dust box Checked...
Hide all mask... paint white on mask over all white marks/spots that need removed
Shft+Alt+Ctrl+E (copy all showing to new layer)
Noiseware to reduced some noise and artifacts (same could have been accomplished using a skin smoothing action)
