Sanda, if you are PC based you may be interested in looking into the preview of the Eye Fidelity Tools (EFT) which is mentioned in a thread here at RP (search for the above keywords). PM me with your contact details if you want to play with it.

At first glance it would seem that using darken mode in your edits would be beneficial. This way the lighter streaks should only be affected by the blending of the filtered image into the original, preserving the original darker tones which do not need fixing.

Channel blending via apply image is very powerful and may be of great help in this task, as suggested earlier by Flora. Magic can be worked with apply image, I like a lot and it is often more useful than calculations or channel mixer.

Another way to target corrections without masks or using blending modes is with layer blend if sliders, but that is another post in itself. <g>


Stephen Marsh.
