what do you think?

Well 1st of all how do I add my attachment picture so you can look at it. I'm trying to figure this out but I have a screaming baby here. I have uploading it and it is on a page that says Attachments Posted by jenjen, But i'm not sure how to put it on here.

Jen

Hi Jen,

if I haven't done it yet,

Welcome to RP!

In both: Restoration, Retouching, and Manipulation and Help Forums there is a link to instructions on "Attaching Files or Images to Threads or Posts"

Otherwise just follow the first link under my signature ...

Also, very, very important are size and resolution of the images attached ... (it's impossible to give advice/help on images slightly bigger than postage stamps ... ) ... so, before attaching any image to your post, please, follow the second link under my signature for help on size and resolution ....

Hope this helps....

Any ideas on how I can improve this? I hope I added the attachment right. I added an selective color adjustment layer for the red, levels and cloning. I can't get the coloring right.

Hi Jen,

You did it!!! The attachment is perfect!!!

One more thing ... you can attach up to 5 images (100 KBs each for a total of 500 KBs) to the same post ... This means you could post original and your correction separately on the same post ... keeping both pictures bigger and easier to work on ....

this was a little tricky. the more i adjusted the face for hue/saturation/light, the worse the hair got, so i had to create a mask over everything but the hair and treat that separately in another channel. i still had that dark red mark on the side of the child's left cheek and on that, i simply did some hand work with the clone tool, smudge, and jpeg artifact removal and texture preserving smooth.

the overall facial color was done on a layer with hue/saturation/light and another on automatic color corrections with the skintones button checked.

you could prolly leave a bit of shading on that left cheek. i took most of it out, but it might look more natural with some in.

i also did a little blending on the hair line after combing layers.

all in all, about a 30 minute job.

I also found this picture 'tricky' to restore .... as Kraellin said

the colour just seemed 'blocked in the very dark shadows and also working on the individual channels didn't help much... so I 'lifted' the shadows by making a copy of the document, changing the copy to LAB and,with both copies open, I went back to the RGB version and used Apply Image on the individual R + G + B channels keeping the LAB Lightness Channel as source for all of them ...

When I was happy with the result, I used Hue&Saturation, Selective Colors Adjustment Layers and blank Layers set to 'Color' to fix the colours ...

Kraellin,

Lacks a bit of texture in my opinion, but great job!

flora,

thank you.... and i agree smudge and clone are not the best tools at times, but i'm still something of a novice when it comes to the 'smarter' tools. and with most of the tutorials aimed at photoshop, it's hard to 'translate' them over to paint shop pro. for instance, what is 'LAB'?

i prolly could have also added a bit of noise to get some more texture. faces are a bit difficult for me yet.... as you've seen before but i is workin on it, m'am.

i'm always impressed with your work and always grateful for your encouragements, so thank you

K.
