I may be staring it in the face but which of the images you've posted is the original, un-edited version that we can use to find you a solution?

I couldn't find one in the PSD file either.

Also, what is it you are trying to do....just the pattern overlay?

Sorry to ask but its just a little confusing as to what's what and the ultimate goal....for me anyway.

Regards.
MrToM.

...MrToM thanks for the reply...
No worries.

...I posted bot the original and the my worked out images in the 1st post itself...
I appreciate that but we need a version without YOUR edits on it.

The original has the red circle and those white triangles.
YOUR edit has YOUR edits on it.....so...

...we need an UNEDITED version so that WE can work on it....in other words the same image YOU worked on WITHOUT the red circle and white triangles.

Ya see what I'm getting at?

At the moment we don't have an UNEDITED version of the image YOU are using....even the layer in your PSD file is YOUR flattened edit....NOT the original image without anything on it.

Or am I missing something here?

Regards.
MrToM.

This is anew version.
I started with the untouched pic.
1original_image-1.jpg

I added a new layer and filled it with the color picked up from the red circle in Pic 2.

3original_image-1 + Color layer.jpg
This layer I set to multiply 100%.
Pic 3 is the new result.

Zoe, here's what I noticed.

There seems to be a pattern overlay of some type that is contributing to this effect.
Screen Shot 2016-10-14 at 2.47.32 PM.png

Here's what I did to match the coloration as close as I could.
I first chose an area to sample from. The area had to remain fairly consistent with both the altered and the original image.
I used guidelines to define the area for both.

When I sampled from this area on the altered image you provided using the Info Panel, it read.....
R 211
G 206
B184

I then created a Solid Color adjustment layer in the same color

I changed the Solid Color Adjustment layers blend mode to multiply.
This of course changed the color reading from the info panel so I adjusted the opacity (74%) until I came fairly close with a setting of...
R 212
G 203
B 182

Though the image appears different because it's lacking the pattern, the color is very close.
Mind you, these are screen shots so the colors may be off from the original image.
