Thanks for your kind comments.
Adding more detail to the dress is easy.
Image > Adjustments > Equalize
That’s It. Easy eh.
I used the copy flip paste method.
Select the neck and dress from the right side
Copy and paste to a new layer
Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal
Now move into position on the left side.
Then adjust levels/curves/opacity to make it blend in.
The other main thing to do is make the man’s hand match his face
Create a new blank layer and set blending mode to color.
Pick a colour from the face and paint onto the blank layer to match the hand to the face.
You can also use this layer to paint more colour into the Flowers.
Hope this Helps.
my next challenge I have set myself is faded colour so if I get stuck I will ask for help again. The different methods people used for my daughters photo let me know that there is a lot of help out there
Pam, I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's wedding pictures. I thought I would give your picture a try. I've never done this type of work before.
Well Pam, I'm new here, or new too, like you, but not new on Wedding pictures.
It's sad that the first pics are lost, but you can be very exited on create a great new picture of their wedding, that could make you fell like a Fireman who rescues somebody, really
Also, I'll tell you about my self, I work as a ad designer for a newspaper, so, we allways have lot of work to do, and don't have time to learn about photoshop on practice. But what I did with my wedding picture it's do changes every day, if I have 5 free minutes, then I took a hand and enhance, then the other next day.
The thing it's, our living room's wedding portrait was a gift to my wife on our first anniversary... YES!!! I took a year to make it great, but it is now.
So don't worry about something it's not going great, just take a breath and doit again.
There are a lot of filters, a lot of brushes, a lot of adjustement layers, and they all can be fun to try on this picture. Don't be scare to do anything, as you can see, here are a lot of people who nicely help in whatever you want.
Yes I am finding out that good things take time and I must say that my picture has worked out really well thanks to all the help I have received. I think that as a 59 year old grandmother of 12 with no photographic background whatsoever and not much computer experience either that if I can do this (albeit with help) then anyone can if they just take the time and dont give up when it gets hard. I have learnt there are a lot of people here who are only to willing to help.
