Re: Old, badly damaged photo

ok tell you what, take the original and make a copy with screen. twice more. then close in onto the legs, and with the darkening brush, just slightly darken the bit that shows through from the back wall, in between her legs.... even without doing that, if you close in, you can see the folds. on her right leg i only fixed the rips of the paper i done not much else to it.

take care
Ev

Re: Old, badly damaged photo

ok, now have a look, i done nothing but adjusted the level a tiny bit and pulled the blue layer back, because that was the noisiest...

Thanks Craig ....... it's from the Library of Congress ...... it was the only photo I could find with something for her to rest her arm on...... it's way too old for her so I just play like she's at her great grandmother's house .... hehehehe

I am going to say it is pants. Her right leg (our left view) No one has legs that shape. She would have elephant legs. They are loose tights down in to the socks. Enhance the photo the right way and it is obvious.

Re: Old, badly damaged photo

Hi Evelyn..... thanks for the kind coments and thanks for making us look so close...... I didn't realize my monitor screen was that dusty..... Phyllis Diller used to say 'It's OK if your furniture has a layer of dust on it..... just make sure no one writes the date in it'.......
