    Hi there,
    I have something to ask about damaged color photo.
    I scanned it, and opened in Photoshop.

    Here is the original image.

    As you may see the red channel in Photoshop, the R channel looks like below;

    That's too bad.... But I want to fix this. Is it possible?
    Is there any idea, please help.

    Chanel mixer... but I would advise focusing on the final look, rather than the state of one channel.

    Use gradient maps to bring color to areas where it is "broken"

      Hi skoobey,
      Thanks for your comment.
      I know I have to look the final image. But I need to repair the eyes and face lines, and etc....
      I've been editing channel mixer, too. So far, I didn't get any better result....

      I'll take some more time...

      Thanks anyway.

        I was over at my mom's the other day, and she found an old picture of me that was taken some time shortly after Noah came out of his ark. She told me that before she had this picture taken, I fell off the bed and damaged my lip that same day. She was disappointed, because she thought it was an...

        In a pickle

        Take a look at the original. The red channel has gone haywire. I found this in a newsgroup full of random photos. So its jpeg quality was really bad to start.
        I took a stab at it but my result looks pasty. This is with zero painting. Strictly slider control manipulation. I used a gradiant mask...

        Severe mould damage on slides

        This is one of 100s of slides I discovered belonging to my parents - that had been stored in a dank cupboard along with the potatoes and onions for the last 20+ years... (No - I'm really not kidding!) Not too surprisingly they are in a dreadful state.

        I have only just started to look...
