"This is my great-great grandmother. It is the only picture I have of her. I'd like to prepare a 4-generation composite for my mother before she passes away. She looks enough like her grandmother and great grandmother for all three to have been the same person. Please help me restore this fine lady who died in childbirth many years ago. Thank you."

Challenge: Restore this photo. Description mandatory

Do your best to restore "GGGrandmother", 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

Since this was posted in 2004, I have learned that my ggmother had very curly hair, that the necklace is most likely a cameo on a black ribbon. My mother has the cameo in her collection. The objects in her hair are flowers (daisies, I think). And the date for the photo is approximately 1876-77. I have uploaded an earlier photo of her in the archives section of this site. It is titled under her name: "Elizabeth Emily (Wells) Wilkinson

Thank you all for participating. I hope that this challenge is helping with your skills as it is mine.
