I understand this technique. Took me a few minutes, but I got it.
My 'long' way of doing it is in this PSD: alcove_unclip.zip ~846k

If you think about it, you can boil this whole thing down to just one layer.

That's interesting.

Usually, I make a Selective Color/white adjustment layer and correct...then, invert the mask and paint back the correction on the overblown areas. Sometimes (rarely) I might add a new layer and paint on top of it.

Thanks RO

Blown out highlights and shadows have always been a problem for me since i started retouching,Bingo Cliping rang a bell from my old drum scaning days and your ATN made sense to me. I stoped the ATN at some point and started playing around with a flatened image. Im going to try and upload ,orig & corrected images,again thanks for your help ,I owwe you one

Hi, Ro,

Thank you so much for the great method and it really works fantastic. I have a little question on your first stage, if I fill the top layer with 50% gray and set the blending mode to Luminosity, in that case I ll get the Hue and satruration information from the backgournd copy layer as well. after that I ll follow your other steps. is it the same as you taught me?

While this is perfectly true, I did things the other way round.

The high-pass layer serves as an almost grey layer on top of which the "background copy" os set to color - ends up the same way, we are only seeing the hue / saturation but with the benefit that we get some outlines to show us where we are.

Real glad that you're finding it useful.

Thanks Ro for a terrific color clipping correction method.

Do you apply your method to images before curves or levels adjustments or after doing the initial tonal adjustments? I have tried it both ways with different results and varying degrees of happiness with the outcome.

I seem to change from time to time .
Nowadays, I will fix all luminosity stuff before worrying about the colours. So it goes something like this:
JPEG clean-up (if applicable);
Separate Luminosity;
Overall contrast adjustments (High radius sharpen / High-pass)
Put Lum in correct range for the skin (byRo B/C);
Rounding (Medium radius sharpening);
Edge / Texture Sharpening;
Mix in colours;
Colour Declipping (at last)
...after this, tone adjustments and touch-up work.

but maybe I'll change tomorrow.
