  • Replacing a Color Channel

    View here

    Another great tutorial from Jakaleena. This one tells how to replace a damaged or otherwise ailing color channel with a whole new one.

    Oh cool. One of my terrible photos made it's debut in a tutorial. Yup that was a nasty one. Great tutorial again Jak. You're getting to be quite the pro at this tutorial business. Hey, you do a few more and you could be the next Katrin publishing her own How to book. Of course if you keep popping them up on this site no one will buy the book. Just kidding

      That one will be very useful for a lot of people. I'm beginning to wonder just how many gifts you're going for!

        Now that people have started tossing presents at me, I'm figuring these tuts are like the old S&H Green stamps. I'm building them up to exchange for a LAWN TRACTOR! (John Deere please... )

          Actually, that's not a far cry from reality. My plan is to make a pitch to the local adult education facility to start a class on restoring old photos (they already offer computer classes). I'm just trying to get a lesson plan together and some materials to work with before I approach them with the idea. When Doug asked me to write some tuts, it helped give me a nudge toward preparing my prospective class materials...

            Alright!!! Excellent idea and a good way to go about it. I think you will be great at it Jak. Let us know how your venture turns out. Sounds like a real good plan.

              From turorial
              "1. Make a duplicate of your image. Select Image > Duplicate from the pull down menu, or right click on the blue bar at the top of your image and select Duplicate. In this image that I am working on, the blue channel looks pretty guilty, so out it goes..."

              Just a heads up: Macs don't have a blue bar at the top of the image nor to Macs have a right mouse button (unless they're using and aftermarket mouse) Even if there is a right mouse button present, clicking it doesn't bring up the choice of duplicating the image.

              In many instances, clicking the "control" key in combination with a mouse click will mimic the Windows right mouse click, but not in this case.

              The only way I can find to duplicate an image on a Mac is with the Image>Duplicate menu option.

              In addition, to duplicate an image and automatically append the word "copy" to its filename, hold down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac) when you choose Image>Duplicate.

              take care,
              Margaret

                Thanks for clarifying that, Margaret. It's been a long time since I worked on a Mac, so I'm extremely poorly versed in Mac menu commands.

                I'm glad you're looking out for those Mac differences!

                  I should pay more attention, but I've used a Mac as long as there have been Macs, and also had to use a Windows machine at work, so I've gotten used to translating. Doug mentioned a while ago that there doesn't seem to be many Mac people participating and I got to thinking that maybe if I contributed more, it might inspire others to contribute too.

                  I still enjoy your tutorials and I admire your concise prose (I tend to trip over my own hands whenever it try to explain anything LOL)

                  Please keep the tuts coming and I'd be happy to translate any differences for you,

                  Thanks again for the good work,
                  Margaret

                    Margaret:

                    How about some Mac tutorials?

                      If you are aware of any sort of translation lists or anything, I'd really be interested in having that.

                      Kind of like the PC-Mac version of an English/Spanish dictionary...

                        I've had an idea for a while, bringing PCs to people in Retirement Homes. It seems they spend so much time doing nothing, not using there minds, and I'm sure some of them still have one.
                        People of a certain age or mind set have had no exposure to puters and don't know what lies in wait in that funny looking box. The graphics instruction Jak mentions would be perfect for these folks, after all, who has more old photos. just an idea, perhaps one could get a grant to empliment such a program. People are living longer and bordom is worse than death, to me at least.

                          Hi Jak and Doug - I don't have much to offer in the way of tutorials (I'm still fumbling around) but I will go through the tips and tuts that are already posted and work on a list of "translations".

                          I'm off to take Grandma for her day at the casino, but I'll work on it when I get back.

                          Take care,
                          Margaret

                            Greg,

                            That is an EXCELLENT suggestion!

                            We've got a discussion about that idea going over HERE in the Work/Jobs section.

                            Maybe, you could post that idea over there and join in with us...

                              Another one of those novice questions for you..
                              This tutorial was very easy to follow, but my question is, how do you determine that you need to replace the channel in the first place... Just cause it looks the worst or is there a rule ??


                              Thanks
