I don't use PSP, but you can probably achieve the same thing as I did in PhotoShop.

Duplicated the layer and set duplicate to Color Burn.

Add a hide all (black) mask and paint at 100% over the clothing areas to allow to "burn" to appear through the mask. Adjust opacity on that layer to suit.

This is pretty easy to do on dark clothing.

Re: need help.

nice, dee dee, but psp doesnt have a 'color burn' blend mode

and beatles2, welcome to RP.

you've actually got a more serious problem than the fading and i'd fix that first. that's the black stain at the bottom of the picture. there's also some on his suit. cloning shld do the job.

once you have that, airbrush and clone shld fix the rest of the clothing.

Re: need help.

not sure if this will help but i used a blank layer set to soft light and merged the layers used selective color choose black and set to -3 choose neutrals set to -21 to lighten the faces and house some then used the burn tool to finish the jackets.. not sure if psp has all these tools but there must be something close to them to use.

Craig.. Hard to imagine that PSP doesn't have something comparable to Dodge and Burn tools. It's such a traditional old school technique.

Re: need help.

Thanks for the help.
My frustration is I lose all detail of the jacket, but with a little help from my friends i will get it.
Thanks Paul

Re: need help.

The faces are the most important thing. In a picture of this era, clothing didn't have much detail.

PSP does have Dodge and Burn tools and the ability to set the layer effect to dodge or burn.

yes, psp has dodge and burn, but it doesnt have the 'color burn' blend mode, which is what i was saying, geru. it also doesnt have 'linear burn' and some of the other blend modes that photoshop has.

Re: need help.

well, doug's working on the site, so i risk losing this post, but i'll give it a shot.

here's an attempt at your image. lots of cloning and airbrushing. those seem to be my favorite tools these days. some clarify, push, brightness/contrast and a usm in there somewhere. also ran a digital camera noise removal.
