    Default I'd like some editing advice ASAP if someone is around

    Sadly, my Nana passed away early christmas eve at age 80.

    I have been asked for photos from her 80th birthday but this one in particular is driving me nuts.

    I hate the yellow colour is seems to be holding and everything I have tried to fix it is not working.

    Any help or advise would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    My condolences, sweetie. I think this is a lovely photo.

    I had a play at it, if you don't mind. I just opened up in Photoshop and added a cooler layer to take out some of the yellow. Now I don't know if it's too cool. I also brightened it up a bit.

    I just recently got calibrated, so I guess I need some adjustment time to get used to things.

    No problem. I used a Pioneer Woman's cooling action (had to go back and look).

    Very nice picture and I'm so sorry for your loss especially on the holidays She was a lovely lady!

    If you don't mind I also played. It does look a bit too yellow but instead of taking away the yellow I added some color. I felt like in Jennifers play they are a bit too pale and need color. I opened a color balance layer and left it on midtones. I added cyan/red +8, Magenta/Green +10, yellow/blue +20. You can probably play around with that until it looks right to you. And play with the shadows and highlights as well if you'd like. I read somewhere awhile back that if you have too much of one color you should add color not take away. Something like what this says. http://www.geofflawrence.com/photosh...rial_color.php

    Now I might be totally off but oh well it's a start I guess
