"This photo was taken c.1940.
The man and woman to the left are my dearest friend's G-Grandparents and is 1 of only 2 photos of this couple in existance. I was hoping to restore this photo and frame it as a gift for my friend to help build her spirits.

I have been playing with this photo for several weeks with little success. I am a newbie at restoration but have been learning a great deal from reading the posts here at RetouchPro.. You guys do some great stuff.

What I was hoping to accomplish with this photo was to clear up the cracks while retaining as much detail as possible.
The lady on the far right in the photo is not important for my purpose.

Please post the steps you used to accomplish your outcome. Thanks everybody.


Challenge: Restore this photo

Do your best to restore "Clear Up the Cracks", and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you restore and how much you restore is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version
