It is the only one we have and it would be nice to see her in color.
I appreciate your time and effort.
Colouring is not my strength, so I'll leave that to those talented in that area.
I've just cleaned up the image a little. (Haven't cleaned everything, as I wanted to keep feel of the image).
Duplicated image and applied Polaroid D&S filter to it. Applied cover all mask, then painted on mask with soft white brush to take out the marks I wanted.
New layer, and cloned out other blemishes.
New layer set to soft light, fill with 50% grey, then using soft black brush 10%, darkened areas round face and eye.
Apply Neat Image to reduce noise, then finally cloned out a few minor marks.

I put some color on it (really quick) so you can see what it may look like.
Later today I will clean it up and re-color.
What do you think?
I cleaned up the marks by painting onto blank layers.
A light colouring seemed more appropriate to this photo.
That's a really nice restoration/coloring application!
I love that era in time and you have done this fine lady proud.
Roadrunner should be very happy with this one.

Welcome to RetouchPro.
If you would like to learn how to colour photos then there are tutorials here
If you need further help then post your results back in this thread and someone will help you.
You have some nice pictures to work with.
Hope this helps.
Polaroid D&S filter is a plug in for Photoshop, or a Stand alone programme (both come with the download), and is pretty straightforward to use.
Download Link Windows 98/2000/ME/XP
Download link Mac
As you're using PSP you'll have to use the standalone programme (don't think there's a plug in for PSP).
