Scanning old photos with faded dyes


Recommended Posts

I have some old photos whose dyes have faded terribly...especially the blue. People's blue jeans look green. Using auto-level helps some, but you can't boost blue that just isn't there.

 

I also have some low-resolution scans of these same photos that were done many years ago. The image scale is bad, but the color balance is good.

 

What I'd like to do is somehow merge the hi-resolution scan I'm doing now with the colors from the older images. Any thoughts on how this could be done?

 

Thanks,

Bruce

Have you tried using some of the Color Plugins?  Like Hue and Saturation, Color Balance, Levels and Color Match.  You can find these plugins via the Plugin Index.
