  • Fixing Sun glare?

    I have fabulous picture of my grandmother but unfortunately there is a bit of sun glare over one of her eyes...I have uploaded the picture as a DNG to save as much info as possible so you could see it...here it is...

    My Grandmother's picture

    I'm not sure how to go about getting rid of the glare. I have the picture in Raw Format and none of it is totally blown out so I think it could be saved.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

    Namaste,
    Kristen

    I would try opening the photo in photoshop and creating a new layer, change blending mode to color, use eyedroper to select a color you want close to the area where the glare is and paint over that area. selecting different areas of the face next to the glare.

      I would follow unimatrix001 advice plus use some D&B technique & High Pass to recover some texture.

          I had a go at this copying the circle of light then used selective colour , brightness /contrast and hue/sat then a bit of cloning to tidy up.I had to copy twice because of different hues in the glare but overall not bad repair.

            Help with sun glare on faces.
            by gj953
            I've been trying to fix this image, with no luck. I've followed some of the tutorials, without any luck. I'm not a photoshop guru, I just like taking pictures... Unfortunately, we want to use this one for a xmas card, and I can't get the glare from the sun off the faces. Can anyone help?

            Hey,

            I'm a newbie and was hoping someone could help me get rid of the glare on the right eye? I tried copying the good eye but wasn't able to match the tone around the new area.
