Join Neil Rhodes for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Photo Restoration Techniques: Color Casts and Fading.
- This course is for intermediate Photoshop users. You should have a good understanding of the Photoshop workspace, basic tool usage, and image size, and resolution requirements for standard print and web applications. This course also assumes you're able to scan a photo ready for restoration. For help with scanning your photos, you can try watching, "Scanning Photos", from The Practicing Photographer with Ben Long from the Lynda.com library.
These restoration jobs don't take hours of painstaking pixel pushing, but they still have unique challenges. In this course, master retoucher Neil Rhodes details the steps involved in fixing the kinds of color casts and damage typically found in vintage color snapshots. Using Photoshop, he shows how to select images for repair, remove scratches, adjust for color casts and tonal variations, and perform more complex light-leak removal with channels.
