Re: How to Repair a Light Leak or Stain.

Thanks for a great tutorial. I have learned enough to fix a few pictures already. On a particularly bad picture I have to do the whole process described. I am having trouble on step 2a, restoring the color. I have the luminosity repaired and the image is in b&w. Whenever I drag 'background copy' or the original image to the top of the stack it doesn't reflect the changes made in steps 1d-1h. Is there a hidden trick I am missing? IT took me forever to figure out to press ctrl+alt+shift+E to actually get the b&w image in the blank layer so you can actually do step 1g and 1h... Thanks again for a great resourse.

Re: How to Repair a Light Leak or Stain.

I think the problem I am having is really two fold. #1 when you 'stamp visible' on the blank layer to get the b&w image layer to sharpen/rotate it freezes the changes and wont reflect new changes...I think it may need to be on a different mode... #2 the color overlay has so much red still...even though the red channel was discarded...maybe the luminosity isn't as good as it looks in b&w...Ken, you make it look so easy..I'll keep working here...

Hi Peto.

Thank You. And welcome to Retouch Pro.

I see the problem.

The tutorial says
Step 2a)
Drag a copy of the original picture to the top of the stack and set blending mode to colour

This is wrong.

Step 2a) should read
Drag a copy of the layer we created by steps 1a, 1b and 1c (ie. Background Copy 2) to the top of the stack and set blending mode to colour

I have amended the tutorial and added an extra picture to clarify this. It also shows how to change the blending mode to color.

Thanks for spotting the error, Peto.

Ken.
