color correction Wife saves the day
8 months ago

normally you improve colors in a restoration but this one I had to match the color.

I had to do a  tone shift to correct most of the print.  Except for a blue area in the picture that had a slight pink tone to it.

No matter what I did it came out too blue or I lost the pinkish tone.   I asked my wife to look at the color and tell me what she saw.   She said it was like looking through smoke in the blue area.

I did a copy paste of the blue area.   read the colors  R was 7 higher than blue and green was 5 lower than blue   I started with  128  128  128 and added 7 to the red 135 blue stayed at 128 and subtracted 5 from the green  123 Then I reduced opacity and started making test prints.  at 23% opacity I had a match

WIFES ARE GREAT
