1st post, Need help!!

Hi everyone, I am new to this site. I am a photoshop cs user and I am so excited to learn new tricks to retouch my photos. I have some old family pics that I am trying to restore before a family reunion and would love some advice.

I retored this photo below, but I feel I still have a green hue that I see not able to eliminate. Could you give me some cc on how to improve this photo.

Thanks so much

go into image>adjust>selective color

play with the neutral channel, the white channel, and the cyan or yellow channel.....should get you to where you need to be

scrapbookingdcd....Firstly, let me welcome you to RetouchPro...
I think you've done a decent job on the restore, and I see your point about the green hue, if you don't mind I just took your retouched version and added a sepia layer to it set on "soft light" mode (you can tone the effect down by lowering the opacity) then I added a curves layer just to bring back the shadows and the highlights little.
I'm sure there will be more specialized members giving you better advise than me but I thought I'd give it a try anyway.
Hope this helps a little........John

You might just try adding a color balance adjustment layer and playing with the sliders until you get something you like better. That's what I did...

Your shadows are too dark. You want to even out the exposure a little. Try Image>Adjustments>Shadow/Highlight.

Hi there

To me it looks more of a blue than green caste. I tried to adjust by skin tone with curves .
