We were trying to get some pictures for our paintball team, and experienced some rather harsh lighting. Is there any way to fix this?

Only if you have PSCS you can go to Image > Adjustments > Shadows and Highlights. When clicking on that your shadows open up. It won't do anything for blown out highlights, though, you would have to do some messing around with duplicates and layering and stuff.

This is what I suggested in PSCS [image]c:\temp\paintball.jpg[/image] : Amount-54, Tonal Width-57, Radius-30.

Hi Toni,
I took a stab at it,levels, hue, selective color, contrast.

That was kinda my thought, but one never knows if it's possible to salvage until you try. I've seen some amazing saves. The hard part is getting the players off a field long enough to get some pictures and actually be able to take off my mask.

Tell them there's free beer.

(Oh, and since they're packin'... okay, they're just packin' paint, but since they're packin' something, you probly should actually have the free beer with yu.)

I agree on the reshoot...it shouldn't take any longer, just use a flash to fill in, or a reflector on the ak side and the result will be much better.

I have had moderate success in saving this image (even though it is so low resolution it was pointless, fun, but pointless.. For some reason I can't upload it to show you the results...
