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 might 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 a picture that was taken sometime in the early 1970s. I don't know what happened to it. Perhaps it was left on a radiator or in the sun. Maybe it wasn't processed right. Whatever the case, it's turned dark and lost saturation. With a little luck, and some hard work, we can try to bring the bridesmaids back enough to see their faces. Feel free to download the picture from the Sams Web site and work along. It's called bridesmaids.jpg.
