See what I’m saying about scans from color film?
The images on the left are the scans, and the images on the right are what was printed.
The top image had about 85% too much cyan, and once I got that toned down, the skin tone was way off, so I just took a paint brush to the skin areas so that he didn’t look dead or sun burned.
The bottom image had about 80% too much magenta, which is pretty much the opposite of cyan. The back ground was important to the person, so that took a lot of hue/saturation tweaking. Mostly with yellow, not green.
I would be very happy if I never had to deal with film scans!
