restore help

Help needed. I repaired this photo and think it needs color adjustments. Could someone help with this?

Here is the original.


I retouched it in the next post.

Thanks again

Thanks again, Photomauler, you sure are patient. That did the trick.

Here is the restored picture. What does it need? Is it any good?
I'm new to all of this. Had Picture It and went to Elements.

Help.

welcome

first of all

you did a great restauration job on this pic

all i can really think of is that you could convert your layer to greyscale and make new layers, put them to color and paint in the colors by hand

there are great tutorials in this site where you can read the basics for that job
I've read it and it's really not that hard :p

good luck

mdivad

ps: Im playing around with your pic but i cant make a great job now cause my boss is watching so i dont surf the web.... lucky me he's not that smart hahaha

Good idea

Thanks for the idea of coloring. I have never tried that, I'll look for the tutorials about it.
And thanks for the kind words about the restore. I didn't know if I could do more.
Can't wait to see what you can do with this picture.
Colorizing.....neat idea.
Thanks, kat

Does everyone have a hard time being objective when they are playing with pictures? I never know if something looks alright or not.

well

the truth is
Im never a 100% happy with what I do
it's hard to know when to stop

but the good part is that every once in a while
you make something really really great

and the best part is that even you know it :p

that doesnt happend a lot to me but .. hey... Im a kid (not in real life ... I mean at restauration hehehehe)
just never give up and dont be afraid to say

"ok, all wrong... revert image... start from the top"

Am I ever glad your boss isn't too smart!

That looks sharp! This is a super fast version??
You really have me fired up to try this colorizing!! I have a tutorial printed and ready to try.
Thanks you so much. Kat

cutout in picture

I posted the original version with a cutout started, to show how I restored it.
This may be a well know technique, but I didn't know it when I started working on the picture.

1st try...I had tried to clone everything and had a mess.

2nd try... I tried cutting the picture where it was torn,with the lasso I think, then used the move tool to relocate it. That left the holes in the background.
Much easier to clone and copy and paste the background than faces.

Thanks again for the colorization. kat
