Blemish removal advice for beginner

2 years 6 months ago #689850 by sideburns24
Pretty new to the editing community; right now only have access to GIMP 2.10.

Took this photo this weekend and did not realize there was something on my lens causing the discolored portion about in the center. Just wondering if this is something that can be fixed in GIMP

Thanks for any advice in advance!

I don't know Gimp — though I heard of it.

In my usual pixel editor, this purple-ish area would be
tackled with a darkening clone brush set at 10% flow.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Not sure about Gimp, but it should have a selection tool, you can then go to hue and saturation, identify the purple colour with the picker then de-saturate that particular shade..

Wouldn't that have the effect of turning the purple
into a grey one in a dark brown area, G?
