Nick Carter
Using Photoshop 6, PhotoBrush and PhotoImpact

1] Opened color channels, used channel with least info, transferred to
greyscale.
2] Copied image onto itself, nudged down and right a couple of pixels.
3] Copied result to original image, used high gaussian blur, made snapshot.
4] Deleted blur action, used history brush on snapshot. Did this several times.
5] Most of the cracks etc had gone by this time.
6] Went into Photbrush and used averaging brush to take out what was left.
7] Re-adjusted torn ear, and uniform.
8] Rest was fine tuning with dodge, blur, burn tools. Hell of a job trying to
get him looking like original.
9] Did hair, need more practise with that sort of thing.
10] Cut out to a transparent background.
11] Picked out photo of Chicago, he looked like a Policeman or FireMan to me.
12] Used the photo at low opacity for background.
13] Used 'Sepia' action.
14] Went into PhotoImpact, adjusted a frame.
15] Adjusted size etc, sent off.

Nick,
I like how you added a city background and faded it out like that. Nice touch to a very nice restoration.

Nice job Nick. I've been away a while and missed some of your good work.
