I started with curves and adjusted levels as usual.
Next I applied dust and scratches filter and used the history brush to paint it back in on a layer.
Did this a second time as the background was very messy.
Then I used the channel mixer to get a good monochrome version of the portrait.
I did the major retouching on that new layer.
Then I selected the tartan and quadrupled it on layers so that the print was much smaller and more like the size of teh tartan on the kilt.
I pasted it onto the soldier above his own kilt then used transform and shaped it so that the tartan was not perfectly straight.Then made a mask and painted back the non kilt portion of the picture.
Opacity was reduced to look less patchwork like.
Then I selected each section and copied to a layer, used fill and adjusted opacity for various colours.
After all were filled with colour,I went back and used the paintbrush with colour,linear burn, dodge etc to add depth to the picture.
The wood,I pasted on after making a wood effect seperately.
Used smudge and blur to smooth out edges.
Did anyone else notice the spiders web in the rose panel?
