I was lucky that pinstripe suits are still popular. The pain was a little higher up the back, but still a pain.

Hi everyone. Thanks for the input.
Unfortunately Craig I don't have access to the original photo, I was only working with the photo that was posted on the Rootschat forum. Here's a link to the whole image so you can see the extent of the problem. http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index...;id=9466;image We have a resident conservator at RootsChat, I will have a talk with her and see what she suggests.

Pierre, I was also looking at the option of using a new pinstripe jacket but I didn't look too hard, as all I could find on the net was too small. I guess this is one of those times you need to take the digital camera down to the shopping mall and wonder into the menswear department, try on a coat in a changing room and take a picture of yourself in the mirror while trying to sit in the same position as the photo. I don't think I'm at that stage yet. I don’t think getting the new suit to age would be too difficult.

Had a bit of spare time today, so had a quick play around with this. Really didn't do much more than a levels adj on the faded patch, then a bit of patching and cloning.

Don't know how far you wanted to take this, so didn't try to make it look like new.

Hi Gary,
You seem to have attacked this problem the same as me. I desaturated the image and the used a soft brush with a reduced opacity to paint a mask over the worst stains. I then adjusted the levels, but I don’t think it is a final solution. I think it maybe a case of raw talent that will resurrect this puppy and I know I’m not there yet. It can be done, I have seen before and after examples of similar damaged photos and I would love to get to that level of experience. Practice makes perfect as the saying goes.

Hi Ants,

I think this one's going to be difficult to get an "as new" finish. I did'nt see the link to the whole image till after I'd worked on the cropped version.

I'm a bit strapped for time at the moment, but will have a go with it if I get any free time.
If I get anything that looks presentable I'll post here.

Good luck with your own efforts.
