This is crazy!

I’ve downloaded a 12mb file and converted it to RGB
I have spent hours on step1 (the restoration) and I now have a 207mb PSD file.
And it’s still only about 20% restored. Then I have steps 2 and 3.

What is the best workflow here?

What’s the point working on a 207mb file when all I’m going to do is drop it back to a 100kb Painting?


This challenge could have been made to last 3 months
September Challenge to restore the picture
October Challenge to Colorize the winners Picture
November Challenge to Oil Paint the winner of Octobers Challenge.

lol..I thought the same thing Ken! I wasn't about to obliverate my nice pic after I worked so hard on it. It was nice though to have a large enough photo to work on to start with for once!

Thanks Loverly

Yes, It was nice to have a good sized picture to start with (even if it is the worst one available)
But I felt like dropping the thing back to 100kb before starting on it.

When I do a painting (usually watercolours) a drop in quality does not matter. But with this picture I am not sure whether I will get better results working with a large file size.

If I do brush strokes on a 207mb file I don’t think they will show when dropped to 100kb.

Nice Picture by the way. I like the way you did the tie. I must have spent over an hour trying to sort that out alone. You have extended the collar lower down than the picture shows. I have done the same as it seems the only way to make sense of it.

Thanks Ken,

Yes, I spent an ton of time on the tie as well as the whole picture but it is a good challenge. I want to add it to my portfolio and what better way to get motivated to do it right than to compete! Soooo...Keep werkin! This restoration stuff is totally different than what I have been concentrating on for the past 2 years. I have tried to stay clear of this stuff since it looked so time consuming and boring. It wasn't boring really but definitly sucked up a lot of time!

loverly,

'standard psp' meant simply a standard paint shop pro frame, like the ones that came with the program.

ken,

what you have to do is tie your network into the SETI share program and let other's computers become as yours

Sure Ken,
I got it from the Auto FX sofware. There are some really nice frames on there.
