Yes, I can see how it would be easy to lose the outline of the lenses, and almost impossible to put them back without borrowing from another image.
Congratulations on an otherwise excellent restoration, you've restored the overall tone of the image with your usual skill. I only mentioned the glasses, because it is so rare to find even a tiny fault in your work.

Hi everyone:

I am not sure if I should have started a new thread but since I am using almost everything in this one to learn more, Mashny please forgive me.

This is so exciting. This is the first time I think I almost understood all the instructions (a definite improvement on my part)
In fact I am currently trying to apply this corrections in a very important photo to GGGrandparents, the only picture there is. After I had give it a try, I'll post it in a new thread for all of you to see, help and evaluate.

(by the way, Roger and Flora any of this tips would make a great tutorial for restoring partially faded photos)

There was just one part of Floras steps I didn't get quite right:

Originally Posted by Flora[list

  • I used Image>Apply Image
    Using the Yellow Channel as Source I went throug these steps:
    1) Target Channel = Cyan Blending = Darken Opacity = 100%
    2) Target Channel = Magenta Blending = Darken Opacity = 100%
    3) Target Channel = Black Blending = Darken Opacity = 100%
Does this mean:
1. Select Channels pallete
2. Find which one has the more detail (in this case the yellow one)
3. Select and view that channel (this means turning off al the little eyes in the other channels )
4. Used Image > Apply Image
And here is where it gets a bit confusing for me.
In the source field, I get the image name, not the channel and then in the target field text which you can't modify, I get the image name the layer name and the channel name. What am I doing wrong.

Hi Mosha,

...Actually, in the 'Apply Image' dialog box you should always be able to change the Source Channel (see attachment) .... What is unchangeable is the Target Channel because it's the only one active (the one you are working on....) .... If your Source Channel is greyed out ... something isn't working properly .....

When working on a single Channel you can still see the effects of your correction in the full colour picture (composite view) if, just after activating the Channel you want to correct, you press the " ~ " key .....
