By exporting to TIFF (and any other format using RGB pixels) you lose the ability to use different demosaicing algorithms. Demosaicing influences noise reduction, picture sharpness and false color (moire) reduction. The future color and exposure manipulation is not affected (assuming sufficient bit depth - 16 bit TIFF).


you can do a similar effect with Brush tool and reducing the Clarity in this layer. Regards from Chile.


Once you have the circles in your shots, the damage is done. The stronger light in the ring-form has overwritten some information that you would like to see there, and just because human brains suggest that it is still there below the rings, it isn't. It is overwritten and gone. What you can do, with appropriately qualified software, is manually 'heal', ...


I do not know the details, but do not underestimate the power of makeup. Normally this kind of photos have a lot of pre-production work. Just a tip, "back in the days" of film photography there was a film called "lith" for example Kodak's Kodalith, that produced a totally contrasted image, with almost no middle tones. This is not the case because you can ...


It is impossible to get original images back in Photoshop. File recovery software are available. There is no way if you overwrite the edited one with the originals..


The odds are against it, if you didn't take care of your files then you really only have yourself to blame. That said, there is a feature called "previous versions" in Windows which has been around for quite some time and, if enabled, may save your bacon provided system restore was/is configured correctly, which it may have been by default. ...


There are a few companies that sell stereographic lenses for SLRs. Limited set of focal lenths but it should do what you want. One example is the Loreo 3D


Probably not, unless you saved in Photoshop's native format and the files have a layer which corresponds to the original unaltered image. If you saved in jpeg or another "flat" format — or if you edited the image directly without using layers — you are going to be out of luck.


how would you represent an image with a 60° span without just leaving most of it black? You can't do it without leaving most of it black. With a 60ºx60º image, you've only covered 1/18th of the 360ºx180º view, after all. Cardboard, being first and foremost a VR viewer, requires equirectangular input to represent the entire VR environment, so whether ...


Yes, it's possible, but a consumer software is probably not yet available. One of the recent examples: Let there be Color!: Joint End-to-end Learning of Global and Local Image Priors for Automatic Image Colorization with Simultaneous Classification by Satoshi Iizuka, Edgar Simo-Serra and Hiroshi Ishikawa from Waseda University Abstract We ...


Similar to the logic used by the GIMP plugin mentioned in Roflo's answer, you can also use the color picture to colorize the gray scale picture. You then first approximately align the two pictures (using e.g. Hugin). Then take the color image, transform to XYZ colorspace and attempt to correlate the gray values in the X and Z channels to the gray values in ...


You can also use channels in Photoshop to help bring it back. A lot of photographs are restored by using this method. Here is a link to a tutorial. I have no affiliation or gain from linking to this website. Hope it helps!


If you're willing to use GIMP instead of Photoshop, there's a plugin named colorize-gimp just for that reason. If you don't know or want to compile, apparently there's a compiled Windows version available.


Stiching multiple image, probably shot on a fisheye lens and remapping using Pano2VR, or Flexify will do the purpose.
