Hi Everyone--thanks again for the comments. It's always nice to get feedback from others. This picture looked like a good place to start for me. Luckily the original was in good condition so that made the job easier. My dad lives in the middle of no-where in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I emailed the picture to him (actually to his wife who is much more computer-literate). His response was, "Hey! Who is that kid? I think I remember him from somewhere!"

That photo definitely captures the essence of my father. The current version is just as handsome, IMHO, but with a little less hair.


P.S. Doug, does this mean I don't get to wish you Happy Birthday?

Wonderful piece of work...I've seen so many colourisations that have been OTT and garrish - they don't improve even if you wear . The subtlety of the work is a credit to you.

Hi Paulette--I used Photoshop 6. I don't have any experience with any other image editing program. Photoshop is great I think--once you get over the huge learning curve--very expensive too but worth the price IMHO.

Hi edgeley--Thanks so much for your comments. And your first post to boot!
