Two Screen layers, Levels and Curves adjustments. High Pass filter on the couple only (in Overlay mode). Result was run through Neat Image. The faces needed some extra work to remove leftover artifacts, fairly well accomplished mostly by painting on a Color layer.

Hello Queen

I just applied three color layers… One for the dress, one for the skin and hair, and one for the mans coat and general background.

The dress and coat were fill layers set to the color mode or softlight I’m not sure which I used. I hide all then paint the color back in using the mask.

I believe I used a gradient mask for the skin and hair set to color blendmode. Again hide all and paint in with the mask.

I did add a little shadow and highlights with neutral layers set to colorburn and colordodge and low opacity brush.

Butch...thank you for sharing your steps to adding color. It worked! It took me a little while to do it, but it was my first recolor. I think Grandma will like it. I uploaded it HERE if anyone wants to see how it turned out.

I couldn't seem to fix the bigger pixels without making the picture looked funny, so I left them. When I printed out the picture (8x10) it turned out nice, so I am happy.

Thanks again everyone.
