Purple glass glare

Hi Damien,

I just signed up to your page today, but have been following on facebook as well.

I was wondering if you could help with this glass glare, which has a weird purple colour. I attached the picture with two crops for the eyes, each one has different "levels" of glare... I have some more pictures with this purple hue.

Thank you!!

Ok, now go ahead and do your raw processing on the photo.  I'm very sure her dress isn't supposed to be blue.

The raw processing was already done 😅 Does it look better like this?

I don't have a screen calibrator yet, working on getting one

It's somewhat better.  It'll do for now.

Ok, may I see the eye closeups again?

These look perfect!

I'm so sorry Damien, but is it possible to have a run down of the steps you did? My skills on photoshop are pretty basic...

Yes, I'm here at the moment. But now I have no idea how to put that histogram looking like yours... 

Is there a way to see what I'm selecting when I'm masking?

Sorry, I have my program in portuguese. I've tried to change it to english, because it is easier to follow, but the only option I get for languages is portuguese 😅

Have a look at the individual channels in the Levels layer.  See the little menu that says "RGB"?  Pull that down.

yeah, found it and i 've done that eye! feeling dumb now 😶

Having a hard time with the other now. i was able to add the channel mixer and the levels layers. But cannot figure out the previous steps. How do you blur the hard line in the purple and then turn the purple to grey?

The Channel Mixer layer turns it to grey.

The blurring was done with the patch tool.

Ok, first apply this Channel Mixer layer to all of them.

  • R +100, 0, 0, 0
  • G +87, 0, 0, -6
  • B +80, 0, 0, -9

(Make sure you get those numbers in EXACTLY the right order.)

Then use the Handyman Method to fix whatever problems are left.
