Removing Stains from a Newborn Outfit


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I haven't posted in quite a while.  

I have 7 images from a newborn photo shoot where I have to remove/fix/clean up poo stains on the outfit.  Normally I would clone and patch this on a blanket or backdrop but it is on her outfit so the texture and sheer fabric is making it difficult.

I have included a number of the images so you can see the varying degrees of what needs to be fixed.

Any advice on how to tackle this would be greatly appreciated.

I just realised what I did...reading back through my notes I adjusted to the skin tone but I have a clear note made saying not to do that.  Silver lining of the original problem...forcing me to go back and read my notes.  SORRY!

Download the PSD file

The first layer, Channel Mixer, should be the same for every photo.

The second one, Dodge and Burn, will need to be manually done for each photo, and will take the longest time of the whole process.  Still, it shouldn't take too long.

The top layer, the colour one, will also need to be tweaked a little for each photo.

Let me know how it goes.

Hi Damien, did you want to use one of these photos for the post in your link above?  I am more than happy to supply one if needed.
