If I may..CJ ..looks pretty good, I would say very good except for the lips. They are a bit different than hers!!

Craig , you have done a pretty darn good job. Thank you both, no way could I have accomplished this. I was wondering if Flora's tutorial would help smooth it out some. Wish my mom's face was not so damaged!! Thanks for the hard work! Neb

Nice one Craig! I took yours and did some more mesh warp on her face to make the right cheek look fuller. Also re-copied her eye and used the pick tool (this would be the transform tool for the PS users) to mirror and very slightly rotate it. Finished up with some lightening and darkening brushing around the lips.

Bart -- Good job! Hopefully it looks like Neb's mama, but no matter what -- the restoration work is well done.

I gotta learn something about this mesh warp you and Craig do....

cj,

not sure when psp put this in, maybe ver 9. here's a screenshot of a section of the image with the warp mesh turned on. the crosshatch is the mesh. the nodes at the crossings are the things you pull on to warp the image at that and surrounding areas. you can see the selection i made on the right in the darker color. that's from her right side (our left). you simply pull on the nodes to warp things into shape. you can pull in any direction on any node. it's an extremely handy tool for things like this.

Thanks, Craig!
So, I guess PShop's Transform can do similar work -- with a SKILLED eye and hand. That's where having an artistic bent comes in handy -- we've had other images where there was little facial detail remaining, and some folks know better how the proportions should look, and some can paint ears etc. back in and look real. This is an area that I would need to work on a lot to get a bit better.

cj,

dont know about the transform tool, but ok.

and yes, sometimes i think we shld set up an assembly line and let those skilled on one thing do their thing and pass it on. maybe that way we'd come out as good as flora at times

Went back to the original thumbnail image. A bit of licence as it looked like a raised collar

Photoshop mesh warp equivalent

I believe the mesh-warp equivalent in Photoshop is called liquid something or other (I had PS for the 30-day trial, but now it's gone and I can't remember the name.) The feature is dialog-box bound, but it'll do what you want--in fact I think it has the nice feature that you don't have to drag at nodal points--you can drag anywhere in the image.

Bart
