Try making a selection of the area then using levels and pull the mid point slider down.

Re: wet patch on checked shirt

Hello Alan,
I used 2 Adjustments layers: Curves & Selective color
1st I used Quick Mask to select the affected areas- then blurred that selection in Quick Mask
2nd with that selection:: Layer/New Adjustment Layer Curves
3rd I adjusted the Layer Mask- I used the Eraser tool on a low Opacity
4th The color wasn't quite right so I loaded the Curve Layer selection & added a Selective Color adjustment layer and tweaked it a little more
The hard part is getting that selection smooth- matching the stain's edges
Cheers

Re: wet patch on checked shirt

Have a look at your red channel, I simply duplicated the red channel, then painted black around the area so just the wet patch in the center was showing. Then I used this as a mask for a Hue/Saturation layer, upped the Lightness and changed the hue to match. I also used the same mask for a Levels layer just to bring a bit of white back into the whites of the material -

Re: wet patch on checked shirt

Well I took a simpler approach. I was able to select only the the darker blues with a Hue / Sat adj layer and adjusted the sliders to match the color and lightness of the good area.
The result could probably use a little increase in contrast and perhaps a bit of sharpening.
Regards, Murray

Re: wet patch on checked shirt

Well here is another way:

I converted to Lab and noticed that the b channel as well as the L channel was involved.

I copied the bottom layer and to the copy applied a mask that showed only the affected area. To that Layer I applied a curves adjustment layer and adjusted the l channel and the b channel to correct the wetness.

Re: wet patch on checked shirt

just to let you know i tried all the methods above and due to me not being able to make a good enough mask and losing texture in the shirt when i was trying to match the color i went a different route. i painted on the blue on a couple of seperate layers on low opacity set to screen mode
