Use the healing brush and the clone tools for most of your work.
A great tutorial resource beyond here, is Janee's site. She has tutorials on a lot of subjects, including photo restoration.
Take a look there, you will find a lot of good info
Thank you all for your help, I have learned a lot from this experiance.......
I am just not cut out for this restoration stuff. I think I will just send the photo out to be professionally done later in the year. Maybe a Christmas gift.
I think for this Mother's Day I will stick with what I am good at..... Photography.
I will just torture my girls one more time and force some pictures out of them tomorrow......
Happy mothers day, this should give you something that you can work with. I added noise half way through and then resized larger later - should have resized first. This isn't perfect - if it was a client job I would do some pieces over, but it should work for what you want - you are welcome to use it.
This is a hard one - and why i didn't jump in with all sorts of detail help to start with - this is the type of image that can be overwelming when starting out. Also, in Photoshop there are ten ways to do anything - learning them all at once can be confusing.
....Obviously I'm not the only one who had this idea....
I resized the picture and just levelled and faded the background a bit....There is still a lot to do .... but, until you get it the way you want it ...(you can count on all of us for help)... if you like it, use it anyway you wish....
Please, let me know if you'd like the full size.....
Happy Mother's day to a wonderful Mother....
