Re: Help.....I have two photos that I am trying to restore .

try a very light airbrush, like 1 to 3 percent opacity and maybe even drop the density a bit. this is for the baby's face. sample the skin color and brush a bit. use variations of the color for different areas of the face. do this all on a blank layer above the image layer. if necessary, use a light gausian blur on the painted layer. you can also try putting the painted layer in a blend mode, like color or soft light. you can do this as you color or after... just depends on how you like to do things.

if all of that doesnt work, take a very light clone with feathered edges at about a 20 to 30% opacity and do a little clone painting across the face. overlay your strokes for a more smooth blending.

i tend to mix both of those techniques, sometimes cloning on the airbrushed layer. just depends.

set aside a nice quiet hour for uninterrupted work

Re: Help.....I have two photos that I am trying to restore .

Hi there

I used two methods

The first is the degrunge procedure with a highpass setting of 14 and a blur of 4.5

Then I stamped a layer

set the mode to screen

Applied a gaussian blur around 5... reduced opacity to around 50 percent

Duplicated that layer and changed mode to Multiply...adjusted opacity as needed

Grouped the screen and multiply with New Group from layers

Applied a hide all layer mask and painted the smooth skin at 50 percent opacity as needed.

Then unsharp mask

Used a little Lucis Art and some contrast enhancement.

Butch, don't forget to mask out the edges. Otherwise you get some serious "bleeding" which detracts from the overall effect.

chillin, that's real nice. I went through my normal routine to compare results, and I must say that your plug-in's come out very favourably.

chillin,

i like that. smoothed things up without that over-blurring one gets sometimes in noise reduction.
