Dejuiced

21 Nov

This image was submitted on the retouching website RetocuchPRO in the restoration challenges section.  The original poster had left one of his favourite images on a countertop and somebody spilled some juice over it (at a guess I’d say cranberry) leaving it in the horrible mess you see below.  Not one to shirk a challenge I obliged by taking the juice stained kid into Photoshop.  I used several hue/saturation layers with selective masks along with targeted curves adjustment layers with masks to get rid of the stain. I also used a blank layer set to color mode and painted sampled colors on it. I used the healing brush and a dodge and burn layer to get rid of the transitions between the stained and non-stained part of the image.

The present giving season is fast approaching, if you are at a loss and are responsible for sloshing a burgundy over somebody’s wedding album – you are on your own, anything short of that I maybe able to help.

Cheers!

Colin
