A contact of mine asked if I could remove the glare from this photo. I gave it a go but couldn’t get the section covering the soldier to match. It seemed a bit of a stretch to completely remove the glare. 

 

Is this beyond Affinity’s limits? 

 

Thanks!

Well, it could be done but you are really stretching the limits of any software with that image. Affinity Photo would do it as well as anything else. Which is to say with great difficulty.

 

A mixture of adjustments, curves, levels, exposure and so forth. There is no easy way, just trial and error.

I had a bit of a play with the image... it is certainly tricky. Was able to get a reasonable match for the area obscured by the glare on the soldier, but as soon as that was fixed, it highlighted the light spill on the stonework, and the secondary reflections in the stained glass itself.

 

Would be a lot of work to fix it all!

A quick attempt (on the soldier) using Inpainting and cloning.

To do it professionally would take several hours.

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
