If You have one, that is not overexposure, maybe You should try to use that as sanpling point to regenerate pure white places ?

That is a good point.

You can then sample the whole face and build your own palette of colors.

If your pics weren't so horribly compressed (and I guess your original aren't that bad with respect to jpeg compression artifacts) all those pics require is Equalize for the first one and Equalize plus a bit of color correction for the second one IMO.

Re: Correcting Overexposure/ISO in Photoshop??

secretagents -> im not quite shure what thos plugins can do, but as somebody mentioned before, if pic is overexposed, there is no information about anything on "white" areas, so using any automatic method won't give a good result (becouse You cant get anything from nothing ). I think, that good method would be:

Copy a good exposed face, and transform it to just fit the "bad" image's face. Then use "bad" image as source for luminescence mask of face, then correct it to get mask of burned places and some of surrounding area, then use this mask to show only those part from "good face", then mask to taste and color correction.

Or that would be the way, i would start correcting those pictures. Dont know what would be the result, but I may assume, that some more correction should be necessary.

Look that's just Equalize. Not bad at all if it weren't for the compression artifacts. Equalize is the first filter I am going to use for that kind of pics, eventually fading the result in one or another blend mode.

QFT this image would have to be something seriously special to have to work that hard to fix it. Sometimes its better to re-shoot than to waste hours fixing it and it will never be perfect to many. Get the image in the camera first is always the mantra fixing it later becomes a lesson in wasted time and effort if you have another image go with plan B.

Compression or not, there are still pure white areas, which are the worst thing of all... its them, that need to be corrected firstly, and then You can use any method You like to correct all other.

Re: Correcting Overexposure/ISO in Photoshop??

If there are totally blown out areas, nothing can be done to recover detail from them and I personally would eventually try to correct them only after I have gotten something relatively decent out of the whole image because I think I will be in a better position at that point to estimate what's missing.

Everyone his own approach I guess.

Re: Correcting Overexposure/ISO in Photoshop??

Ok everyone, here is Plan B. I have another GOOD image of the guy to be featured in a magazine. Problem is, I don't know which is better. And feel free to play with it as long as it remains natural. I can't come up with anything that needs a fix but I guess that's why I am posting here for you guys to suggest.
