Re: Great Grandma Needs A Facelift

you're welcome, polly.

here's a black and white version. i'm still practicing colorizing. i'm trying vikki's (one of the folks here on RP who does superlative colorizing) method. i'm getting better but not as good as she is.

Hey Craig I think the nose and lips are really great. They look better than I could imagine. How'd you get such great lines of definition?? The black and white is soooo coool.....Thanks a bunch.

Re: Great Grandma Needs A Facelift

polly,

generally on an image like this i start using things that will bring out detail. contrast, levels, curves and so on. there still wasnt enough to truly be sure of the lips and nose. the nose was the hardest and for part of the tip i just really had to guess based on what was surrounding that damaged area. then i just chip away at the damage. in this case i simply cleaned up the background, eating away the grunge there with masks and clone type actions. i ended up with a nice black and white mask of her profile from which i went on to do other things with the image.

Re: Great Grandma Needs A Facelift

Had to have a go at this one.
Used Clone, heal, blur, Levels and Dodge and burn to bring out highlights.
Left as soft focus.
Had to add some noise as it was looking a little plastic )too clean)

The book Photoshop Restoration & Retouching is a wonderful book if you are interested in pursuing restoration and can get your hands on a copy. It's a lot of fun going through all of their examples, especially on the old photos.
