REPAIRING DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS, PART 1
In this demo, we will repair a photograph taken with a low-resolutiondigital camera—in this case, the Kodak DC50. Often these cameras produce excellent results, but they have a few deficiencies that can berepaired digitally using layers. This technique is also quite useful for repairing badly scanned images.
1.
Open your digital imagefile in Photoshop. Zoom inon the image and take a closelook at the problem areas,especially noting the skintone in this image.
2.
Go through the RGBchannels. Press Command/Ctrl+1 for the Red channel,Command/Ctrl+2 for theGreen, and Command/Ctrl+3 for the Blue channel.Notice the artifacting andextra noise in the Bluechannel. The Blue channelis the telltale channel of ascanned image and often willshow the errors of the scan.
Blue channel
 The CCD (ChargedCouple Device) inthe camera is leastsensitive to the blues,and it is more difficultto interpret those colors.Also, when you capturean image with a digitalcamera, it’s compressedwith JPEG compression. The combination of these two factorscreates noise in theblue channel.
3.
Zoom out of the imageand return to the RGBcomposite. Here’s how toeasily fix this image usingPhotoshop layers. Duplicatethe Base Layer by dragging itonto the New Layer icon atthe bottom of the Layerspalette. Double-click thisnew layer and rename itColor Blur.
