Fixing "light leak" or banded discoloration

I have this picture of my dad, and it appears as though someone opened the camera and partially exposed the film, or the photograph itself was exposed to sun for extended periods in certain areas.

I've tried playing with channels and curves and whatnot, but am not really sure where to begin with fixing the discoloration here... Any ideas?

Many thanks!

The Tutorial section (Site Nav>Tutorials) has a wealth of information.. such as, How to Repair a Light Leak or Stain.

Re: Fixing "light leak" or banded discoloration

Hi Brentnauer

Maybe a tutorial is not needed with this picture. All the channels are fixable, especially if you wanted to make it a little more selective on the subject.

This is just a few selective levels adjustments on the RGB channels separately and then a layer set to colour to paint on the finishing touches.

Regards

Ken
