Hi Phyllis Welcome to RP, Nice job.

With mine I feel like I cheated a little because I desaturated the background. But I suppose the final result is all that counts.

Ken, unfortunately most are not too concerned about the way you get there, just the final result, don't take it personally. This however is a request for help so a little different, but in the real world only results count, not how you got there. BTW, pretty good job, but unfortunately Phyllis is the standout on this one. I have not had the patience with this one personally.

Thanks for the nice welcome... lots of new faces here since last time I stopped by.

Craig, I used the eraser as described here:

Cassidy, I don't think desaturating the background is cheating at all... I think it was a brilliant idea. Wish I'd thought of that!

Aye, Phyllis did an amazing job on that picture-- she took the time to finish the process, unlike the rest of us lazy slobs. :P

So that's your excuse, eh? Thanks, Roo, but if there's a lazier person around, I'd like to meet him/her, because I'm as lazy as they come. That's probably why, after the initial layering technique, I didn't even try to think of other shortcuts, since experimenting would take effort, so I just grabbed the hand tools and took care of the stripes and mismatches one at a time. Sometimes it's easier just to do it "the hard way"... which turns out to be the easy way after all! This took less than a half hour, maybe 20 minutes total. Anything over that, and I'm wayyyy too lazy to bother with it.

This one wasn't that bad, but, face it, working on problem photos is often a tedious chore! This is why I have moved away from restoration (though not retouching/enhancement), since I finally decided that no one can pay me enough to do what some of them require! I prefer to do paintings and photo art nowadays, since there's a lot more variety, thus more fun! Now that I've made the tiger presentable, I think it would be fun to paint him! Wheee!

Spot On. I had several false starts at this trying to do is an “easy” way
