  • Eliptical

    I'm at a loss here, everyone. I don't know quite where to begin with this one. I have tried a few things such as selecting the faded area and adjusted each levels of each R G and B channel to best match the outer (non faded) area outside of the circle. I'm not having any luck. Can anyone give some advice for me on certain techniques to use on this one? I was thinkin about maybe trying to match the areas outside of the circle with the damaged area inside and then trying to apply a global correction but somehow I don't think that's the answer.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hi,
    I worked with the colors extensively never getting a good flesh tone. I took care of the oval for you and you could always give it a hand-tinted color if you want. Just a

      This is the way I would go. Duplicated background layer three time each with multiply blend mode. Added Level Adjustment layere to get better contrast. Then two Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer to convert to black & white. Next copy merge and paste to bring everything together. Added layer mask to create vignette. Final Levels Adjustment layer.

        Thanks guys. The client wants it to remain color if at all possible. Any other ideas?

          Personally I think we have two things going on here. It looks like the frame has reacted with the photo edges and the exposed portion of the photo has become desaturated and faded. Possibly trying to meet the two in the middle would be the best option

            Hi there

            Is something like below what you are looking for?

            If so I did not think in terms of color but luminosity. I used selections and hue/saturation to match the brightness and desaturate the picture. Then a little cloning to blend the inevitable edges.

            I used the skin of her arm and shoulder to sample colors from the original and applied a gradient map to recolor.

              Hi Jubbaking.

              Tricky Image.

              It is very difficult to decide on the original colours because the edges are discoloured and the centre is faded.

              I don’t know how close I got

              Ken.

                difficult image for me. flora does these so much better. but, took a shot anyways... practice, practice, practice.

                one note of interest, perhaps. doing just the inner part of the elliptical is probably a mistake. make your selection on that, do your corrections there and then invert your selection and correct the outside to the inside.
