Re: Seeking help to correct colors

Looks good overall but I think the clothes look over-saturated. You're also getting some magenta fringing in certain areas of hair extending into the background.

Re: Seeking help to correct colors

I have a real hard time with backgrounds. I painted in that background. But I don't know a good way to blend it in without messing up the hair. The result is that stupid halo. Do you have any suggestions on blending/painting around the hair? I have the same problem when I work with trees. The sky through the branches really gives me a fit. If you could lend some pointers or suggest a tutorial on that it would be awesome! :-)

Re: Seeking help to correct colors

I was hoping I might see from your layers where that magenta spill was coming from but it's not apparent there.

If you can determine which layer is causing it I'd just mask it out on the layer mask.

Re: Seeking help to correct colors

I checked the channels copied the green channel pasted to a new layer blending mode to soft light, lab mode levels on all channels, back to rgb mode
many more levels adjustments, color balance layver, mask out skin gradient map reduce opacity to taste. 2 layers one set to soft light other to color painted in the red dress. new layer painted in some green set to soft light, new layer set to soft light painted over the boys jacket. Sampled the background next to the lady on the right and painted new layer blending mode soft light for background to remove yellowish tint.

I would convert to B&w & colorize it using the original colors.

Re: Seeking help to correct colors

Thank you for sharing. I love chillin's but I chose to leave the softer look.
