i was going through my photos on my hdd,and playing with them at work.
okay so i have a reoccurring problem, it is pink hoodies/coats/shirts
it is hard to describe the problem just the pink looks blargh!
here is the original and my edit version, which i like all but the pink :O
if you can screen shot, or detail what you did to fix the pink that would be awesome!
Thanks a ton for helping out!

Photoshop selective color edit can change that hoodie color in second!

EDIT...

Ok if you have Photoshop you can do this...
1) Magic Wand the pink. It is really isolated so should be very easy to select.
2) Click the little half white half black circle below the layers area and choose Hue and Saturation.
3) You just created a Hue and Saturation layer mask...play with the sliders and whatnot to get what you want. If you select the "colorize" check box you can even change the color.

This is non-destructive!

Unfortunately I think the image is soft - focus appears to be on skirt leaving the face too soft. At f2.0 there isn't enough DOF to help.

OK - I think the image is too cool. Warming it up brings the color back but pushes the pink sweater over the top exposure wise. Recovery can't even bring it all back. Toning down the exposure at this point makes the image too dark and leaving the exposure up makes the sweater look iridescent.

The problem is that you've clipped the red channel, at the very least, which has the same effect on colors that over or under exposing your shot does with highlights and shadows...you've lost detail there.

There may be some way to recover some of that in PS, but those shots are ones that I wind up tossing because I haven't found a workable way to fix them.

I have the same problem with really red things, especially with the 7D. If you find something useful, I'd love to hear it :)

blarrrgh means the pink looks meh, it should be a smooth (with texture) pink coat it
you can see on the seams and the breasts, stomach and on the folds it seems kind of posterized

Do you use DPP for any processing? I have found it very useful as you can manipulate camera settings as well as a host of other adjustments. My 40D makes skies a 'Parrish Blue' at times and I can correct in DPP.

okay, so i tried to do some red channel fixing , failed, ran a red channel fix action
and it did a pretty decent job, got rid of most the posterization
but (gf said) it is a orange-ish color

IMAGE: http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6146/6003316785_ca422e74e2_z.jpg
then i did a layer filled with pink/magenta color, at about 45% opacity set to color mode and ended up with this (gf says it is pink like her coat):
IMAGE: http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6014/6004451984_a705439a07_z.jpg

so what do you guys think, i like how it is less posterized and it looks pretty similar to the pink shirt i am wearing right now

Your last version does look quite a bit better; there still looks to be some color 'blotching' in the folds/creases, but there may not be too much to be done for that. That second to last one does have a slight orange hue to it, too.

How did you do the initial red channel fix action? Something in PS?

was talking to a local photog friend about it ,and he gave me the action, it was just a PS action called red channel fix, ill send him a message and ask him . but i think the last one looks a ton better the original. yeah there is still color blotching :/, i think i might be able to help it a bit buy going in to pixel level, but that may be too much work.

but looking at the action it
converts to LAB, selects a channel, does a levels, selects b channel does a level, converts back to rgb, dues a hue saturation, with sat set to 50, then deletes yellow channel, converts to grey scale, surface blur, find edges, set selection to channel, select black channels , surface blur, add noise, set selection, delete alpha 1 , then a few more copys and pastes and set selections
