Thread: Can PS save this Purplish Picture?

  1. #1

    Default Can PS save this Purplish Picture?

    Hi Clubsnappers,

    I have a picture that was taken under purple light ( my folly...didnt adjust the White Balance) , now the entire picture looks too purplish to me.

    Is there a way to correct it such that it looks like natural colors under white light? Or any where closer to that?

    You can see the picture here.

    Woot that's mighty purple...well photoshop can help to a certain limit...just try to get the best result with the colour balance....drop the blues...i think...or u can go to selective colour and try your luck there.... =p
    if my camera is there at the right moment, click, all I have to do is accept it.

    apart from the face, everything else is of about the same color in different hues and shades. to really go all out and save this shot depends on whats in it for you...
    your best bet is to convert it to monochrome...

    Next time, set ur camera to RAW format, the white balance for RAW images can be adjusted using Photoshop CS.

    My attempt.. This is really tough. Turning it to b&w is a good idea.

    Run PS and Go to Image->Adjustment->Match Color-> Click on Neutralize

    How abt discarding the colors since it's really hard to salvage? Well not exactly but I tried to fake a "platinum tone".

    Here's a quick try..

    Image->Adjustment->Match Color-> Click on Neutralize
    Use curves (Ctrl-M)
    Bump up Green Channel & Pull down Blue Channel...

    Tried this 'correcting by numbers' method. Skin tone is high on Red, then Green and blue slightly lower than Green.

    Try opening up a properly white balanced image of a person with the same skin tone. Read the information palette while moving mouse over skin area and you can see the RGB values changing. What you have to do is to figure out which colour is too high/too low in relation to each other and pull that curve up or down.

    I didn't have any specific methods. I did a process similar to what willyfoo described. Then tweak further with curve to bring down the purple, push up the red to bring up the skin tone a little. Hope it helps.

    Cheers!

    How's this?



    Photoshop has a built-in filter called "Depurple" (Filters > Artistic > Streetshooter > Depurple) which will do just what you need.

    Please don't confuse this with the DeepPurple filter which will do just the opposite.

    By the way, it would help if you could tell me the original colour of his Tshirt.

    All you need are the proper parameters for the Depurple function.



    Wanna make Johan a blue-eyed blonde?

    no...Johan is true blue asian, so no need the angmoh "plug-in".
