Could one tell me how i can select and adkust the darker noisy pattern on this jumper. I want to smoth the pattern out and merge it a little bit more with the brown color so that the grey pixels are not so prominet anymore. I tried an inverted overlay but didn´t helop too much. Any Ideas? Help is very much appreciated. A picture is below. Many Thanks!!
Look at the separate RGB and CMYK channels in search of the flattest (most monotone) one. It turns out to be the Magenta channel in the CMYK set.
Make a duplicate of the original file and change its Mode to CMYK.
Select the Magenta channel and copy it. Do not close the file; it will be used again later.
Return to the RGB version, add a duplicate layer.
Add the Magenta channel as a top layer. Change its Blending Mode to Lumnosity
Merge down to combine the top two layers
Use the Color Sampler tool to mark the image as shown
Jot down the values seen in the bottom Layer, the starter image
Return to the top image and, using Curves, match the starter image values.
NOTE: When working in RGB, changing tone values can affect color in the image because both tone and color are housed in each channel. Here it affects the darkest shadow values of the image. They shift from neutral toward green. The correction is as follows.)
Return to the CMYK version of the image and choose the K channel It has almost no tone beyond the darkest shadow end of the scale. Copy it.
Paste the K of the CMYK as a layer at the top of the corrected RGB file and change its Blending Mode to Multiply.
Done. Save as a PDF file. View the enlarged illustration.
At this point you can lighen the entire image if desired.
