Retouched image

After a lot of help with the noise I came up with this fix. The first step was to remove the background. After that I applied a watercolor plugin and pasted it to the cloth background I downloaded from this site. The image at that point was very harsh, so I copied the background and pasted it over the image, did a screen blend and put the opacity at 20%. Not a perfect fix, but for me a keepsake.

This is a photo of me and my granddaughter. One of the few I have of us together. I am usually behind the camera.

Lynda,

You've done a fantastic job here ... Wow, I'm impressed! And what a lovely photo it is too.

Did you do this in PhotoShop?

Sam

Thanks, Sam. I used Photoshop 6. I have to admit this was a tough one, but I am learning.

Looks like it was taken in a studio. Beautiful.

You did a nice job. That really was a tough one.
I thought I'd try a technique that I like for this type of photo. It's quite different, but another alternative when you get a dark, noisy photo.

Nice Job

Hi Lg,

A very nice job of taking a dark so-so photo and making something truely beautiful from it.

Don't you just love it when you can do that? It really is gratifying and that's what makes you keep going in this work.

Again, nice nice job!

Lynda - you really created a beautiful portrait out of a snapshot. I love that background, and your subjects are lovely also. Your granddaughter will be so pleased when she grows up to share such a lovely memento!

I see you're in S. Korea. My brother served there for a number of years while in the U. S. Army, and loved it.

CJ,

Living in South Korea has been a wonderful experience. My husband is a civilian contractor working for the Air Force. We have been here almost 2 years. There have been a few culture shocks, but that is to expected in any foreign country. The Koreans are a very gracious people. We have truly enjoyed being here.
