  • Red photo

    Hi, I'm new to posting here and I'm working on a picture of my grandparents. The picture has an awful red cast to it. I've attached the before and my work in process. Any tips or helps on how to improve the picture would be appreciated.

    You did a really good job there and the picture is 99% ready.

    Trouble is, you did all the difficult work and forgot the easy stuff!
    Happens a lot to me when I show work to my wife. I'm all proud because I did something very clever and she only looks at the little things I left behind!

    In your case it's the little threads on the lady's forehead and chest, a blue stain on the dress. Also white spots on the trousers and general blotches in the background.
    Trust me, those are the first things those "untrained" eyes will notice.

    Welcome aboard!

      Thanks so much Ro, I really appreciate the feedback. I was working on the tones first and then I'm going to clean it up. Do you know if there is any information about skin tones anywhere, they seem to be a little off. I'm going to try a warming filter and see what that does.

            The red umbrella signifies good luck and is traditional in Chinese weddings, but it sure does a number on their faces. Can one of you wizards help me fix it?...

            I've been working on this picture for a little while and have not been able to come up with a satisfactory solution. As you can see, there is a lot of red and very dark. I have played around with the curves, color balance, brightness/contrast...
