Colour repair in Photoshop and Lightroom

Filed under: photography,scanning,still images — 2017-07-15 by Richard L. Hess — Last Edit 2017-07-15 by Richard L. Hess

I was working on a media and image digitization project this spring and early summer. Some of the slides from 1960 had horrible color shifts. Here are two examples that I helped along in Photoshop and Lightroom. I did not take detailed notes on these but thought that they might provide an indication of what is possible without too much work. Obviously, other defects could have been reduced, like fingerprints, but there was an inadequate budget for this type of cleaning. Clicking on either image will bring up a larger version. I made the scans of the original slides on my Nikon Coolscan 5000ED.


A summer of archiving…

This summer [2013], we have completed the project we described at the end of last summer. We began the summer of 2008, with Robert working every summer to some degree since. Michael split the work with Robert in 2009. More commentary below the graphic (UPDATED 2013-08-31) after the break.

Personal Image Scanning Project

In the 2007-2008 school year, my son Robert asked me why we did not have all our family images in the computer as there were some that he needed for a report. Since this was a project I had desired to undertake for some time (but who has the time), I responded with “I’m very glad you asked, what are you doing for a summer job?”

As of September, 2012, the bulk of the work has been completed and here are the statistics:
