"Hi Doug -
I am still an extreme novice here. I joined about a year ago and had a great time with a photo I was working on. Anyway, I am going through old (pre 1920s and forward) family photos and was wondering what kind of photos you need for Challenges. I would be glad to share some of them.

I also have scanned a photo a friend asked me to try and fix. It's a Santa photo of her young son who was later killed when he was just 18. I told her I would give it a try. It is in such bad shape, it's a huge challenge to me, for sure. When I saw your request for Challenge photos I wondered about this one. How do I send you a thumbnail to see if it would work for a Challenge? She gave me permission to submit the photo.

If the answers are already here on the website, I couldn't find them. Just point me in the right direction.

Thanks, Taylor"


Challenge: Restore this photo. Description mandatory

Do your best to restore "Santa's Lap", 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

To all who restored this photo:
You can't imagine what a gift you have given my friend. The last time we looked, there were just 2 restored photos posted. She doesn't have a computer at home and we don't go back to work until Jan. 3, so she won't get to see all till then. She was amazed that her picture could look new again and very touched that people she doesn't even know have done this work. Many thanks from both of us. I'm pretty sure this will be her favorite Christmas gift.

I don;t know how the retouch I did ended up here. I don't know how to fix it.
