Color Retouching

So far, all the pictures we've worked on are old, black-and-white photos. You can use most of the same tools and tricks in color. You might find that color retouching is even easier than working in black-and-white. The color tends to disguise some of the manipulation.

Figure 22.1 is a picture that was taken sometime in the late 1960s. I don't know what happened to it. Perhaps it was left on a radiator or in the sun. Maybe it wasn't processed right. It was dark to start with and as you can see in the supposedly white edge, it's turned yellow. Feel free to download the picture from the Sams website and work along. It's called momanddog.jpg.

Figure 22.1. This picture turned yellow with age.
