Old family pictures restoration...
My name's Sebastien and I live in Belgium.
This is my first posting here.
I've just began retouching old family images. I just wait to know what you think of the work I did.
Let's begin slowly :
My grandparents on their wedding day (about 1950).
Nonno e Nonna
Then go on a bit stronger :
Still my grandmother (about 1950).
And finish, for the moment, by the image that asked me the more work.
My grandpa during his time the army (1946).
This one was quite hard as I had to recreate the "honeycomb" structure of the paper before drawing anew the missing parts of the picture.
Alright, now, I really wait for your comments. What do you think of that ?
Welcome to RetouchPro Sebastian, you have done some very good work with those Photographs.
A very little comment, when you do overal adjustment of contrast using curves, levels or any other filters, pay attention to areas on the picture that are brighter than the rest... those tend to lose its detail and become just a bright spot on that picture.
That's very important to keep those areas intact.
Best of luck!
I see what you mean.
But I've looked with attention to that : the "overburned" areas on the retouched picture are already burned on the original. The fact is that they are just a bit "overcontrasted" on the retouched...
If you judge it's a mistake, i'll look what I can do to it.
