Good Gracious girl could you get one just a bit harder? lol

I just sent this one (corrected of course) home, but here it is to play with for anyone who wants to. I think I'll try yours.

I just had to try. I didn't go to deep as you will notice the eyes are not where I would, nor you, want them... that would be a think about kind of thing..... but there is a good start....

Hugs, C

Re: Help - Extreme restoration challenge

candice, did your original have JPEG noise like this - or was that something you threw in just to make it a wee bit more difficult?

Here we go, in (pretty much) the same style as the above.

For you Ro, I threw it in extra!!

Actually the original was just like that! Now why didn't I think of that. Ahhh because it was a restoration! LOL

I should have sent it into the challenge area, huh!?

Re: Help - Extreme restoration challenge

Hi Klassylady.......thank you..... it was an accident and started because I can't 'get' the dodge and burn method for doing skin retouching...... I took one look at this picture and figured it couldn't hurt to practice on it....

It was just zooming in and out with that *#!* dodge and burn..... I think I started with channel mixer and the mono thing selected, flattened and began working.

At the end I think I switched to Lab mode and chose the Lightness channel, changed to grayscale then finally back to RGB and changed the blend mode to Soft Light......

I don't think it helped my dodge and burn for up close skin though.... oh well..

Beth

Re: Help - Extreme restoration challenge

Solitear: That is an awsome work. I can hardly believe it. I am so grateful and impressed with the work you and Ro and EVERYONE else did!! I have such admiration for you all and all you can achieve. A blessed talent for sure. I am going to post another photo ..I would like to ask help via directions . I would like to try it myself. But need help on what this picture might take to get it looking better. Now this is a scan of the original as can not scan it with lid down as it is a ah..convex photo. So this is the very best we can do. My friend understands this. So can someone help me learn the techniques to make this a better picture for printing. Thanks Neb
Using either photoshop CS2 or psp9

Re: Help - Extreme restoration challenge

Awe..... thanks, Neb..... it really melted my heart when you'd said their father had passed away (my parents and only sibling are gone, too) and that was their only picture of him.... I have a large version of it if you'd like.... just PM me .....

I'm going to play around with your latest picture..... it should be fun, too!
