When a glass plate or negative is used to take the picture it is easy to look at the picture correctly by inverting the negative and looking through the back of the emulsion to see the image correctly (an enlarger will also reverse this when making a print)
When you scan a negative you scan from the back so it is the correct way round.
With a tintype you cannot look though the emulsion (because it is iron) so the only way to view it is from the front ie reversed. Imagine taking the film out of the camera and replacing the film with paper.
I have copied quite a lot of these for customers and I always explain this to them and ask them which way they want it printing as they are obviously used to seeing it the ‘wrong’ way round.
As far as I am aware they never made a camera to correct this as the camera would have needed a mirror in.
Here is what I have so far.
Needs lots of work, but getting there.
Not sure how to handle the skin, and keep it real looking.
The only thing I replaced, was his right eye. Looked a little funny in the original.
I did some cloning to the left eye, but removed to much texture.
Is there a trick to cloning just the texture in an image?
Not bad at all.
Thanks to everyone for the tips, and discussion. I'm going to take my time with this one, and will post later if I manage anything worthwhile.
