Syd,

It looks great. The background is wonderful how did you get that background to come through?

Thank You Syd

Sharon

Sharon I used a color balance adjustment layer and added 10% more blue and 10% more green. I also increased the saturation by about 10%. I did all my color corrections in Lab mode.
Sincerely Syd

Syd,

What program are you using? Do you know if Gimp 2 has it? I'm new at using this program and have try the color tools on it but haven't found out how to do that.

Thanks
Sharon

Sharon,
I am using Photoshop CS. Sorry, I don't know if Gimp supports Lab mode. Craig will probably be able to help you on that.

Sharon,

Had a go at the Betty and Brenda pic posted earlier in this thread. The original is in a pretty bad state and it needed a lot of cloning. I decided to add some texture to it to get rid of some of the smaller scratches and save myself some work. (Photoshop - Filter/Texturizer/Sandstone) It took on a bit of an artsy, painterly look which I had reservations about at first but, later, thought it looked ok. Perhaps this is one route you could take especially if you have a large volume of pictures to restore. I wouldn't suggest it with any photo but this one (I suppose because it has a bright red berry bush in the background) lends itself to this kind of treatment.

Sincerely Syd

Syd,

Thanks, it looks more real then mine did. I never could get Aunt Betty's hand right. The red berry is cherry's picture was taken in Michigian in 1964.

Thanks for everything.
Sharon
