Does anyone want to PS this and tell me how they did it? This photo from a neg about 30 years old never saw the light of day for obvious reasons.

With todays technology and your expertise it just might. Thanks

I am not at home at the moment, but this should be fairly easy. In PS, go into levels and choose either the white or grey eye dropper and click around on the girls collar, see whisc one gives you the better results. You can also go to Color saturation and desaturate most of the red. Someone will be along shortly I'm sure!

I think part of the problem is that the scaner software black point setting is killing some detail and color information in the deep shadows. If possible, re-scan. Grain growth also seems to be giving some real grain issues.

I have been scanning some negatives from the 70's, and find that colors have changed, and there are blotches in places that take quite a bit of time to correct. I keep hoping for a one-step fix, but haven't found it yet.

Here is my quick effort with Photoimpact. Mostly adjusted hue and saturation, and did some noise reduction.

Hi ... my second post ... in PSCS with the curves tool eye droppers I selected peak white on the girls collar, neutral grey from the guys shirt and black from the top of the left edge, followed by some slight clean-up with with the healing brush and finalised with some noise filtering. Hope this helps ... Jack
