Can anyone help??

I have a photo i have been working on with no good result, and i would really appriciate any help i can get. Here is my story
I gave birth 2 years ago to my son. He was stillborn and looked terrible and i have been trying to retouch his picture so that I can have a normal looking picture to hang on my wall.
He looked really bad and i can not hang a picture of him up the way he looked. So any help would be highly appriciated.

Thanks,
Andrew's Mom

A warm Welcome.....Andrew's Mom,

Your posted message was just fine, if around here one errs.....
Another will gently lead them from darkness....


Maybe a little help for you to upload your photo....

Know where it is located on your computer, which folder.
Scroll down on this message box....to where you see the word "Browse"

Click on it... find your folder, using top row box.
When you find it, highlight it and click open

Do the same on line with your pix, highlight .....click open

All that is left to do now....click submit reply.

Whenever you feel comfortable..... I know you will find many that are willing to assist you .....

Hi Andrew's Mom,
Welcome to Retouch Pro. So sorry about your loss. There are alot of talented members here to help steer you in the right direction but they usually depend on some kind of visual reference. Like Goldcoin said, if you could upload a pic to show us we can probably help you out. The picture will have to be no bigger than 100 kb in size so you may have to resize it. Then just follow Goldcoins directions. If you get a message saying the file size was too big you may have to resize it and try again. Sometimes using a Save For Web feature is real helpful.
DJ

You are welcome to attach your photo here, however considering the sensitive subject matter you might want to work via email with interested parties instead. We get thousands of visitors per month who never register or post, and not everyone is as nice as our registered members. It could be heartbreaking to have your photo appear elsewhere in less sympathetic circumstances.

thanks everyone

Thanks for everything and i will email the picture but not post.
The picture is too bad to post.
And thanks Doug for thinking of me. You are so very right.
anyone wanting an email just let me know, and i will email it to you.
But i warn you now it is a really bad looking picture and some might not want to see it after all.

thanks everyone,
Sincerely,
Andrew's Mom

I did Chuck and received a lovely thank you from the mom. Yes it was disturbing, but if it makes a difference it was worth it. I think anyone who wants to should try, the mom will have a lot of choices then.

Chuck, thanks for sending me the images. I finished one that I sent to Andrew's Mom. As Debbie said, giving her a number of choices would be wonderful.

The picture is shocking to say the least but he's a beautiful baby and it was truly rewarding trying to retouch his picture.
From the looks of it, Andrew's Mom will get a lot of good help here. As always the Retouch Pro members flock to help. It what I love most about being here.

Hi, I just returned a retouched photo to her also, this was an interesting challenge and I am very happy with the results. After the work it seems a shame not to share the afters ... a challenge with no visuals... the part I had trouble with and I left similar to the original because what ever I tried seemed to look fake was the lips - any who are happy with the job you did on the lips please pass to me your technique, Thanks.
Roger
