I have a series of close up photographs (distances of 6-8") that were taken as RAW (DNG) files using a mobile phone, they were taken by someone with minimal experience and have areas that are over exposed to the extent that they are almost pure white with minimal data existing in the original file other than white or shades of it, so Photoshop cannot automatically retouch them or correct for the over exposure.
I've tried manually adjusting all of the normal setting such as brightness, contrast, color balance, and so on, but there just isn't enough detail in the file to get a good image.
Are there any techniques that could be used to "fill in the blanks" on the picture. for example using AI rendering, that are easily accessible, or any programs that have a similar feature.
Or should I just give up and manually draw in the missing parts of the images using an art package?
I'm using Adobe, Clip Studio and GIMP, but am not limited to them. So this is more a question about available tools and techniques than about how to use a specific package.
