Taking Scribbles off a picture?

I have a photo which i want to remove the scribbles off which i done when i was a child. I have been messing around with ps cs5 and content aware but not getting it right around the face when removing scribbles. Is there any other way of removing them??

Re: Taking Scribbles off a picture?

Try duplicating the background layer then Image>Apply Image and apply the Green channel to the layer (normal blend mode). Change the layer's blend mode to Luminosity. Next add a new blank layer on top with blend mode set to color. You should be able to use the paint brush and alt+Click to sample good color and paint over the green lines.
Hopefully you have a higher res image than the one you attached. You may need to apply some noise redcution to the image before starting the above process.
Regards, Murray

Re: Taking Scribbles off a picture?

click on background layer to select it
Ctrl+J to copy the layer (this should be layer 1)
Ctrl+2 to select the green channel
Ctrl+A to select all of the green channel
Ctrl+C to copy the green channel
Shift+Ctrl+N to form a new layer.. change Mode to Luminosity (THIS SHOULD BE LAYER 2)
Ctrl+V to paste the green channel into layer 2

De-select the lower two eyeballs in the layer pallet (LAYERS 1 AND background) so that only the black and white green channel shows and LAYER 2 IS HIGHLIGHTED AND SELECTED... Clean this layer so none of the lines show and it is a perfect black and white picture

click where the eyeballs were on Layer 1 and the Background layer to make them visible again... SELECT layer 1 and be sure it is the only one highlighted (all layers should be visible)

Using the eyedropper tool... select a good color next to a green line and paint over the green with a soft brush just a bit larger than the green line... constantly changing and selecting a new, appropriate color next to the green lines

Re: Taking Scribbles off a picture?

Using either method described you should be able to get finesse the image so that the green ink marks are very close in brightness to the background and with a little Dodge and Burn you can get the lightness identical. Once you do that, you can paint over the green ink with color sampled from adjacent areas. In the example below, I spent a few mins on both faces. However I painted the man's face all with one color because the image you attached is as pixelated as you can get an image. You saved it on Jpeg setting 1 which is the absolute worse quality, highest compression, largest loss. If you work on a decent quality image you should be able to achieve an excellent restoration.

Frequency separation does good job with this one.
