Restoring Color Tutorial
« on: November 11, 2021, 07:17:21 PM »
This is a pretty mind-boggling tutorial, but interesting. I'm working on some discolored negatives from the '30s and I was sure they could not be color corrected. I was wrong.

Thanks for sharing the link.

I usually steer clear of Smart Objects (because the files get so huge) but this is a really good example of a situation where it makes the task much easier. Plus, lots of little tips (like pasting in the luminance channel and then fixing the levels to match the a channel) along the way.
