would like some guidence on trying to fix a photo

Hi there, I recently lost my mother, and through looking for photoes for her reflections video we came a cross a photo which we would like to see if we can fix it. The photo looks likes someone has put a coffee on it and it has left a round stain. Can we fix this At present I own Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx Barb

Hi Babs

Welcome to RetouchPro.

Is the picture B&W or colour?

If it is colour then there is an old tutorial from Russel Brown which may help. It is difficult to find now but search Google for ‘rbstains.pdf’ and you will find a copy.

If it is B&W (or sepia) then very often the stain will be much reduced in the red channel.

We could help more if we could see the image

Regards

Ken

Hi Barb

The image in your album is only 30kb. You may post images into the forum up to 100kb.
This thread should help

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/ima...ads-posts.html

Alternatively, post your image at one of the free file sharing websites (such as PhotoBucket) and post a link to it here.

The stain on the picture can be removed using the clone tool once the levels have been adjusted to remove the colour cast.

Regards

Ken
