Hi,

 

I've been watching the AP tutorials on YT. The gentlemen narrating the videos is awesome, as I am learning a lot, much more easily than I've ever learned on Photoshop.

 

So now I've come across a picture that I want to restore, but I don't know how to approach this task, as the photo has many color distortions. Can someone take a look at it and steer me to a video or start me off with some instructional support?

 

Would really appreciate it... :)

 

The file is too big for this forum, so here's the direct link from my server.

Thanks...

Hi, may be it is better to start with the RAW. I´m astonished that magenta is (for me!) only very few to reduce in AP.

It's better to provide a link to  the original JPEG or RAW  !!!

You could try doing a levels adjustment but switch to CMYK and then switch master to magenta and with black slider reduce the magenta colour in picture and then do the same with yellos

First, I should say that I am NOT a "retoucher." Second, I found it nearly impossible to work with the RAW file and get to a point that was much better than the original .afphoto file you posted. Anyway, here's what I did. In order, I added the following adjustment layers:

 

1 - Selective Color - There is a really weird set of color casts, plus those yellow stripes or shadows on the left arm are strange

2 - White Balance - warm it up (I didn't go as far as the solution just above)

3 - Added a PIXEL layer and set the Blend Mode to Color. Used this to "rosy" up the cheeks a bit, and tone down the yellow arms

4 - HSL - increased the saturation slightly

Then I did a "Merge Visible," duplicated the layer, and did a Frequency Separation. I worked mostly on the Low Frequency portion to smooth out some of the texture. The result I got:

That´s fine! But the first one has not so much magenta as I see.

 

AP and Pixelmator can´t open the NEF, Gimp does: 120x160 px (29 MB). It is to see the same color problem as in the afphoto.

But the problem is not longer one.

 

I saved the report (to apple) after break of AP, if someone want it, please tell me.

 

Best
