  • any idea about how to fix this (green lines)


    I'm new in the forum . I'm from spain and I hope learn in this fantastic forum.

    In my last photoshot (food) I had a problem with a piece of meat. There was green lines because it had been 4 days in/out frozen.

    can someone opine about best technique to fix that horrible green color?

    i'm sorry for my poor english.

    Hi, something that has worked for me is to use the clone stamp
    and go to mode: color
    sample the red of the meat and go over the green area.
    then you can enhance the red of the meat..depending on which
    version of photoshop you are using...I like vibrance...
    of course you can get more technical but it depends on what you are using the image for.This is fast and simple.

      I would lasso those problem areas (make sure to feather it) - then use Curves as an adjustment layer and pull down the green channel and raise the luminance (RGB) and equal amount that you pull the green down.

          Looks pretty good to me. You are at least on the right track?

            looks good, just play with curves & vibrance and make the colors pop

              There are numerous ways to eliminate the "green" areas. I found a little dodging and burning worked very quickly. Used a 50% gray layer set to soft light blend mode. Burn the "green" area first and then dodge only on the Red channel to bring the Red values back up. Here is a sample patch (original and D&B) that just took a few seconds.

                All the replies you got are valid. But take a look at your image, there is no need for blue or green. So you can go ahead and desaturate both of these colors entirely and then paint with the meat color in hue mode and/or color and/or saturation to bring back the red where you need it. Also it deserves some cleaning up, using the stamp and healing brush tool. Circled a couple parts quickly where needed imo, more cleaning up to be done though

                  you can also try the color range and mask it then change the color (invert the mask first)
                  you can also likely target that color in camera raw or lightroom to change it from green to red.

                    Help: how to isolate/clean green dirt in scan
                    by ScanRookie

                    I have another challenge.

                    This scanned image has green dirt. The negative was already cleaned with PEC12 cleaner before scanning, but there is still a lot of green mould?

                    Is there a way to isolate it fast in Photoshop and clean this up?

                    Thanks for looking. I have been lurking around this great board for a while now. Trying my hand at retouching some old family photos. I just can't seem to figure out how to get rid of the green on this photo without having to clone or heal a little at a time. Does anyone have any suggestions or...

                    Hi Richard,

                    I have read the first 5 chapters of HPPE3 and am now going back to read them again and hopefully this time take in more than I did the first time. Right away I found a question regarding the separation of colour components on page 46. In step 5, you state that we can turn...
