Re: First real photo restoration attempt

Hi Parker,

I had to use my old memory .... curses upon you

Yes, I did miss out a step there ..... sorry. I used a curves adjustment layer, and used the middle point to take the whites up without blowing them out. If I recall, I used the top of the boys hair as a reference point because that seemed to blow out quicker than the other whites. Once you are satisifed with what you have, click on the mask and press ctrl i to invert it - set your paint to white and select the paint brush. When you paint over the little boy/girl that part of the image will lighten and the rest will stay the colour it was before.
