Last Chance

This is the only photo I have of myself when I was pregnant. It is a crappy photo and neither a good nor high resolution scan, but unfortunately this digital image is all I have, as the photo itself is lost. Restoring this image is the only hope I have of having any photo of my pregnancy at all...

I don't know if you can use it, but it would mean a lot to me. I haven't been able to do anything with it. I do ok with removing tape or cracks, but this sort of thing... I'm at a loss. I don't even know where to begin.

The thing on my head is a bandana (olive green, with no pattern) and the pants are blue sweatpants with the waistband rolled down.

OpalCat, Welcome to RetouchPro! I'm glad you found us. I just read your intro and perused your website for a while (mostly your photo gallery). You are a very talented artist! I loved your pencil drawings especially.

It seems like this picture would be really good for a challenge - and you'll probably get more people trying it that way too. If you'd like it to be used for a challenge, scan the file so that it is under 5 meg, TIF, RGB, and email them to dnelson@retouchpro.com. (That's Doug - the "all-powerful wizard" of this site who can turn your request into an actual challenge. )

I can't scan it as anything... that digital photo is all I have. If I had the original photo, I'd scan it at a higher res, but I don't

Sorry - I see you already told us that in your first post. Well then, the best you have is what we get to work with. Hopefully Doug will be able to discuss it with you - I would send him e-mail regardless (though I'm sure he'll see this too.)

I moved this over to the 'Help Requested' forum. Since the full-rez file fits the upload reqs here, we'll see if someone here can offer some help.

Hi Opal,

Your picture is somewhat salvageable. A big problem is in the channels, especially the red channel. To fix it a little you'll need to play around with the channels. It can be extremely complicated if you're not too familiar with channels, but if you want to, pm me and I'll give you some ideas.
