Re: Washed Out

Created a duplicate of the pic and set the blending mode to multiply and then masked off the areas I wanted darkened

Re: Washed Out

This is my try at this. I started with the original image. Then in addition to what has been done I tried to improve the focus and did a little smoothing of the skin on the ladies. The focus adjustment produced some small artifacts.

Hi Cumbrian,
I like the old b&w pictures. Also your Gt Grandad has a great mustache.

Re: Washed Out

I selected the luminacity (Mac Option+Command+Tilde) and jumped it to a new layer, set that layer for Multiply. (Dupe the multiply layer one or more times to make the white areas darker). Ran a highpass on a merged version.

Re: Washed Out

I duplicated the layer, adjusted levels to match the sides of the original & use masking to blend with the background layer. Some high pass filter & toning.
