carpman,

as i said, i'm following this thread. i've done some more work on your pic. this is sort of a stage 2 result. there's much more to do, but i thought i'd post some of this as i went along. this is mostly just cleaning up the major rips and tears and with clone work. i attempt to keep textures and shadows making sense, but i'm not really trying to clean those up yet, just trying to get rid of the big tears. and no reconstruction on the missing parts yet either.

so, that's where i am currently. how you doing?

Craig

Craig, That’s looking Good.

Here is what I did

Loaded mick-0012a.jpg
Next Layer mick-0012b.jpg Aligned and set blending mode to Lighten
Next Layer mick-0012c.jpg Aligned and set blending mode to Lighten - Faded opacity to 50%
I did not use mick-0012d.jpg

Select All > Copy Merged > Paste

Then Desaturated.

This gave me a start, but probably not as much of an improvement as I expected from the extra scans.

I can’t work out what he is wearing.

It looks like a shirt at one side and a coat at the other. Are those black lines braces or marks to remove? And if they are braces why is one wider than the other?


Ken.

ken,

i'd like to see what you've got with the extra scans added in.

as for what he's wearing, i've not quite figured it out yet either. the collar on his right (our left) seems to be one of those checkered types, the old red and white. he also seems to have on a tie or kerchief like the boyscout kerchiefs. but the collar doesnt seem to be consistent with the rest of what he has on, so maybe he's wearing a coat or something over it with just the collar showing. not sure yet.

Craig

Looking good, thing is i don't have any time until next end of next to do anything.

As to what he is wearing, think the black lines are braces but as you say why is one bigger than the other?

Looking at picture i thought he might be wearing a cheque shirt and jumper over it?

will be keeping an eye on your progress to see what i can acheive.

Craig, I was a bit reluctant to post these ‘till my monitor is calibrated. (You may have to adjust the brightness)

The first attachment shows the result of mixing the three scans. As you will see, it has not really saved any work.

The second attachment is where I am up to. There is some distortion in the eyes. I will try to realign the eyes by splitting the picture on the tear.

well, it looks pretty good so far. you've kept the integrity of the image. not sure what the distortion is you're seeing, but ok.

i was off for the weekend, so i'll pick this up again on into the week.

Craig

Hi Carpman.

Hmmm. Not sure what has happened here. It looks like you have lightened the picture to eliminate some marks. Unfortunately, in the process, the contrast required to give a good print has been lost. I have tried to bring the contrast back but all the repairs then show up again.

There is a very similar picture here

Have a read at Rô's ABC and then at Flora’s method for the restore (The FFT bit is not needed with your picture)


Ken.
