A little problem (very little)
The small pic is a scan (in real dimension) of a photo I received to restore. I scanned it at 1200 dpi, and after a bit of effort I have managed the second picture - but Im not totally happy with the results - I need to de-noise the face without obliterating the features. Does anyone have any ideas about where to go from here?
Although I have ethical questions about it, would you remover the dark patch (smoke?) appearing over the man's shoulder?
Both pics are at max jpeg quality ( I hope this isnt an issue!)
I should add - Im using PS7 on a g4 mac with a grafire tablet

First I'd like to say you've done a great job so far on this photo. I think the dark patch (smoke) over his shoulder is distracting and looks more like a smudge than smoke so I'd remove it.
To take the noise out of the face I would either
Use the techniques found in this tutorial
Make a merged copy and make an edge mask to protect the features, then run dust and scratches filter on this layer to take out the noise without affecting the features.
I think I am almost there
The chimney went............... it wasnt working. Thus the smoke went.
I think I am just about there - I dont want to totally destry any texture, and it looks sort of arty......... I will print it a about 3inch square for the owner, and any blemishes at the edges sould kinda meld into it
That's my excuse, I am stucking to it!
You did a great job! Wanted to play around with the photo a little, hope you don't mind. Used Grain Surgery to reduce the noise. Then used a multiply layer to bring out the features. contrast and sharpen. Just spent a few minutes, didn't have time to finish clean up the image, take out the smoke, etc.

I think this will be my final effort
I like this - Its less defines, but also less grainy.
I added a photoshop clouds layer at 80% burn and blurred the edges of the building. Various bits of the bloke were subject to differeing amounts of lever adjustment, and his face was copy and a 5 pixel median filter applied.
I am hoping that a monchrome dye sub print will soften some of the grain.
I hope the client is happy........... has anyone had a case where they started with a similar pic and encoutered client disappointment?
