Hello

 

I was able to remove/clean other parts of the jacket but his sleeve is turning to be a challenge. Tried patch, clone and stamp but i dont like the result. 

Can i please get some help or guidance on how best to clean that area?

Thank you

Can you try this Channel Mixer layer?

  • Red 0, 0, +48, +3
  • Green 0, 0, +72, 0
  • Blue 0, 0, +98, 0

If you'd asked me before you started, I would have advised adding that layer to the entire jacket. Now that you've already done some repairs, I'm not so sure.  Just apply it to the troublesome sleeve for now.

Thank you,

 

I tried on ACR photo and got moire on some parts of the jacket but only a little of the dirt got cleaned with your Channel Mixer recommendations.

Also, i have never used or learned about this adjustment, so had to do some reading on the fly. I turned opacity of the layer to 27 bc the blue was dark grayish blue w those numbers.

I think I got somewhere where I am happy medium with. 

Did a clone from other sleeve bc i was loosing texture and then mask, invert and painted with low opacity. still doing it but much happy with the result

Thank you for helping :-)

What do you think about this? 

No, i have no used channel mixer but wanted the image done today.

Yes, that's right, it's supposed to.  Then you invert the mask and paint on the sleeve, exactly as you said.  When I did it, the numbers were perfect.  An exact match for the jacket colour.

I started clean from ACR and applied the Channel Mixer settings you gave me. Painted on the jacket sleeve and a little on the shoulder and a crease. Then cloned a couple of dirty spots bc moire was stronger on those. 

 

Thank you very much for your help. Cant wait to graduate from Raw and take your levels class.
