What was the name of the program that allows me to take out yellow, add blue, etc. to a scanned picture?

I should have saved that Q but I didn’t. I forget who was working with me on it. You guys are all so awesome.

IrfanView does that. It is free.

@CWOTUS told me about it a few years ago and I’ve been using it ever since.

Perfect. I thought it was you. I have photsketcher on my desk top, but that wasn’t it.

Thank you.

Oh, and this question is now saved so I can find it again!

Well, crap. When I tried to down load it, it got blocked. Said it might have a virus. :(

Gimp works and is free

Well, I got Irfan loaded, but I don’t know how to work it. :(

OK, I want to color correct this picture. How do I do it?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Wait..I found the color correction thing…..

That is a crisp white amidst a sea of tan.

It’s an old picture. The colors have changed.

I played with it. Does it look better?

I use XnView; also free. There is a minor Holy War between XnView and IrfanView, but I stay out of that one and just use the one I like better.

This is what it looks like with the settings Gamma 0.80, Red -55, Blue +40 and no other changes.

Adding blue counters the yellowing you find in old photos; after all, they are paper.

Blue counters the yellow. I will remember that. Thank you Jerv.

Well, you forgot it once already…

That’s because I didn’t save that question! This one is saved.

Might want to drop it in here and see what the wizards can do.

Keep in mind you would want to ask sparingly. Maybe once a month or they will photoshop tons of cocks into old pictures of your grandma.

@johnpowell 4Chan also offers photoshopping services. I hesitate to recommend asking Reddit for about the same reason I wouldn’t advise going to 4Chan.
