Plane Print Restoration

Hi,
I'm not sure if you can help me, but I have a photo of a print that I need restored. Originally a clock was stored over the top of the print, as you can see by the picture the rest of the print has subsequently faded. I would like the print to have the same colours as the top section. I am not asking for someone to do it, but rather help me work out a process of doing it in photoshop.

thanks in advance

Re: Plane Print Restoration

Here is another rendition. If you like it let me know and I can provide you with details tomorrow. It's a bit late back east so I need to power down for now.
Regards, Murray

Re: Plane Print Restoration

Here is my go at it...I isolated the problem color and masked it out, then adjusted the levels and saturation....

Re: Plane Print Restoration

Hi David,

Glad you liked the work. Mistermonday, Murray, does outstanding work. I do this only as a hobby. Strongly advise you go with his suggestions. But to answer your question, I use PS CS3. Using the quick selection tool I isolated the area you wanted to match and then inverted the selection. Used levels, Hue/Sat, Selective color and a little healing brush tool to try and restore the large color area.

Re: Plane Print Restoration

I would start by taking the numbers from the less damaged area & apply them to the rest of the picture.
I use some masking for selective curves adjustments.

cheers, thats probably the best of the lot
once you have taken a sample of the colours from the less damaged area, how do you then apply them to the rest of the picture?

Re: Plane Print Restoration

Use marks & replace the output numbers with the inputs from the less damaged sample. The pairs of marks should be from similar areas. You will have to mask the better piece when blending.
