Hour 22. Photo Repair—Color > Color Retouching

Color Retouching

So far, all the pictures we've worked on are old, black-and-white photos. You can use most of the same tools and tricks in color. You may find that color retouching is even easier than working in black-and-white. The color tends to disguise some of the manipulation.

Figure 22.1 is picture shot with the color film that was available just at the end of WW II. It wasn't very good then, and as the picture has aged, it's gotten worse. Now it's mostly browns, reds, and yellows. (I know, it's hard to see this in black-and-white. Use your imagination or download the picture from the Macmillan Web site and work along. It's called Provincetown.)
