  • Fixing "light leak" or banded discoloration

    I have this picture of my dad, and it appears as though someone opened the camera and partially exposed the film, or the photograph itself was exposed to sun for extended periods in certain areas.

    I've tried playing with channels and curves and whatnot, but am not really sure where to begin with fixing the discoloration here... Any ideas?

    Many thanks!

          Hi Brentnauer

          Maybe a tutorial is not needed with this picture. All the channels are fixable, especially if you wanted to make it a little more selective on the subject.

          This is just a few selective levels adjustments on the RGB channels separately and then a layer set to colour to paint on the finishing touches.

          Regards

          Ken

                Glossy Skin
                by rame
                Hi there,

                I looking for a solution to create a glossy skin - the model on the photo has no glossy makeup. She has now more or less a smooth light skin. The smaller picture shows the direction it should end up. Contrast should be enhanced, too. Any tipps?

                Thank you

                What is this 'metallic shiny' look on skin retouch
                by TheMountainMan
                How is this achieved? I know it was all post work, because the before shot had no such shine. What tool is used to create this?

                Very red frame faded photo
                by TheNeglected
                I am attempting to restore a group of old photo's for my parents and each one has quite severe frame fading on them. One particular photo also have a very heavy redness do it, i can seem to fix the outside fading quite well but i am finding fixing the more heavily faded center to be very difficult....

                Help - Flash Fog
                by robbrownuk
                Hello Everyone,

                I have a problem with my N97 camera phone (the lense has become scratched). This has resulted in a "flash fog" that fills the left half of the photo.

                I have no experiance with Photoshop CS4, so please be patient
                Could anyone help me restore...
