Re: Help with removing flash glare from wall

Cameraken. thanks again. I used your 'levels' settings as a starting point and played around a bit to achieved a look that I'm happy with. The thing that helped me the most was the top layer set to color.

Re: Help with removing flash glare from wall

I go about thing like this in a bit different way. If you use inverted high pass technique select the colour layer. Sample the colour from area without the flash glare. Select the brush tool and set the blending mode of it to luminocity. Paint over the area with the glare and u should get a decent result.

@spinq: Thanks for sharing this, I have a lot of notes regarding the the inverted high pass, however, I don't find any reference to color layer, would you please elaborate on the color layer (where on the layer stack) or if you have a link to a tutorial, will be highly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Help with removing flash glare from wall

Since english is not my first language my comments may be misinterpreted. I lack some vocabulary.

For me inverted high pass technique is something like this:
1) make 2 copies of background.
2) blur the bottom copy (im using dust and scratches tool)
3) use apply image on the top to get high pass layer (source - bottom copy, blending mode add, and since im using 16bit images - select invert)
4) select the blending mode of high pass layer to linear light.

so we got more less same image as background but with separation of texture and colour and luminocity. This how I see it and will gladly be corrected if i'm mistaken. If i sample the colour from area that was lighted by flash but doesnt have a glare and select the blending mode of brush to luminocity you should be able to more less remove the glare. That is if there is still any colour behind it.
