The influence of beam attenuation (BA) and indirect excitation (IE) processes on atomic resolved imaging with x-ray fluorescence holography (XFH) is considered. It is shown that these processes can influence element sensitivity, the key feature of XFH. A model which allows one to correct for BA and IE is proposed and verified experimentally.
