If you’ve had the pleasure of converting film slides of days gone by to the digital format, you may have experienced that bittersweet feeling of excitement mingled with a tinge of disappointment upon first viewing the dust, debris and tiny fibers accumulated by storage over the years in the scanned result.
Building on a recent post, Digitally Converting Slides and Negatives with Jumbl, in this video tutorial we’ll take a look at a few simple techniques to help reverse the ravages of time and bring new life back to these important keepsakes by way of Adobe Photoshop CC.
- Common color casts of Kodachrome vs Fujichrome
- Correcting Purple color casting via White Balance adjustment
- Hue/Saturation color-shifting and de-saturation
- Highlight & Shadow adjustments
- Noise Reduction and Edge Sharpening
- Straightening Images via Lens Corrections
- Restoring color and detail via Graduated Filters
- Enhancing Depth of Field via creative Tilt-Shift Blur
- Enhancing color and detail via single-image HDR in Photomatix Pro
