Submitted by Jennifer Crockett:

"The original about 8" x 6" was glued to a metal frame and apparently lacquered. Photo taken in 1922. The lacquer has cracked giving the lines on the scan. I did submit a very low res version of this photo to the Restoration forum (my first post) and got some useful advice. However the one I submitted then had been cropped and there was light coming in on the left. I asked the person to rescan the complete image and put a towel over the scanner to stop light getting in.

I don't know much more about the picture. The couple were Henry Greenfield aged 24 and Myrtle Krebs aged 19. They were married in St Thomas Church of England, North Ipswich, Queensland, Australia 22 April 1922. The original has been in this sorry state for some time. The frame had a another part, now missing, which was apparently a metal back with a hook on it.


Challenge: Restore this photo. Description mandatory

Do your best to restore "Henry & Myrtle", 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

If you have an image you'd like to submit for a Challenge, read the FAQ (link up in the navbar)
