Hi Craig,

I'll post the Civil War images in another thread on this forum. And I'll answer your question regarding digital camera vs. scanner in a private message.

ok, finished the george van stone pic. came out pretty well attached is the final in .jpg. you can see the original in an earlier thread.

lots of clone, smudge, and push on this one. one ajustment layer and a Neat Image near the end to clean up the grain.

comments welcome.

Excellent work, Craig. It looks pristine! I went back in the thread to find the original you posted. You had to work hard and the best part is it doesn't show.

thank you, pierre.

you may note along the bottom edge on the left that there is a line of something that doesnt quite look right. i believe that's part of the old paper holder for the tintype. it had a pattern in it. so, i left it in.

well, it's been a while since i posted any of these, but i finally finished another up. not sure exactly who this woman is, but it came with the rest of the family items. the raw image is posted in another post in this thread, so you can look back up in this thread and find that for comparison. i'm quite amazed these have been cleaning up as well as they have.

the compression on this was 27% so a bit of detail is lost here.
