Patching

January 2009 Magazine

Digital photography has many strengths and has become very popular in recent years. Arguably its greatest weaknesses are being particularly sensitive to the camera settings used to take the picture and a lack of tolerance to very bright objects in a picture. Any objects that are too bright will turn to white and lose detail in the bright area, a phenomenon that is sometimes called 'burnout'. Image faults like this can be repaired during photo editing using a technique known as 'patching'.

Although this technique was covered in the June 2007 magazine, the author made a mistake by describing a feature that was only available to photographers using full Photoshop. This month's article describes a method that is available in Photoshop Elements.

Below is a section from the same image before and after fixing a burned out white strip using the patching technique.
