Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

This is fabulous klassylady ! I remember seeing that image -I am also in that program- and wondered how could that be fixed in any way. Now I can see :clap: What I don't know is how should I do with my image on very close inspection I realized that there is a person the head an part of her shoulders are barely showing through a huge knot of white and blurred stuff. I suppose I can manage to clear that. But the advise given in one of their e-mails says not to modify or add anything. Ohh well was just rather discouraged when found that out, the missing person I mean.

Congratulations again on your restoration here

Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

that's pretty good, candy. probably your best to date. you restored without damaging and that's what you want. you filled in the side of his head very nicely.

now, remember what i taught you about smudging the edges. the shoulders need a bit better line.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

This monitor isnt calibrated so I dont know how this will look at home but it looks bad here - the jacket looks like you've scribbled all over it - presumably places where you've coloured in some dust and scratches - I wish you could see what it looks like on my monitor - I get the jacket as being pure black but your corrections are RGB(23,23,23) - very noticeable on this monitor.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

nancyj is right. i must not have enlarged the picture before. looks like clone or smudge marks.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

On the one that I sent home there was nothing that was smudged or cloned that shown in the restoration. That is not to say that I didn't clone, but only a few white dots that were on the uniform along. I didn't use the smudge at all when I posted here.

AND Don't you wish that ALL monitors looked the same. Wouldn't that be a big help when each of us are viewing the other's work.

And Yes, Craig, with just a few final touches, including what you taught about smudging... it went home last during the weekend.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

candice,

if you cant see the lighter gray marks on the uniform, you might want to calibrate your monitor. they are definitely there. even a simple on-line calibration, software wise, shld show these up with the image enlarged.

Re: Operation Photo Rescue - Beginning and End

If you're just talking about contrast you dont even need anything that sophisticated - just use the RetouchPro Logo Adjust your brightness and contrast until the logo is clearly 10 eqal blocks of different shades of grey. The shades I can see on your image are lighter than the penultimate shade in the RetouchPro Logo so I'm guessing with your current calibration you cant see every shade

I did that and wowcan see what you see. Now... how do I keep that information there? The greyscale that was adjusted with the B/C?
