Many thanks to all - as far as I'm concerned, you've all performed a miracle on this photo.

Thanks.

Re: Old, ripped, scratched photo needs help

Hi Psycho_uk,

Here is my contribution... In fact, my first restoration attempt (but I´ve been using photoshop for over 6 years now).

http://img148.imageshack.us/my.php?i...edbybenti4.jpg

(can´t seem to make an image thumbnail)

my contact info (email) is on the pic, so if you got more pics to restore or know some who have, please contact me, and we will get a nice solution

Cheers,
-Beni-

I might have missed few spots, but your photo is a perfect practice picture. scratches, "grape" skin, dust, fingerprint...

It seems Imageshack had some problem with that one! (it worked right after I put it there, and checked from another pc too)

Anyway, here it is now: http://img148.imageshack.us/my.php?i...edbybenti4.jpg (it is also updated in my first post).

Hope you like it
-Beni-

Glad to oblige - although I didn't know this photo would be so useful

This is my first post and I have no idea how to do an attachment here to show the thumbnails so will just give links to the images.

Zekeode, I've just been browsing through this thread and wanted to say I think your version is really excellent. Beautiful clarity and detail, and a particularly good job on the tear through man! (My only teensy criticism is that both women have slightly odd repaired eyebrows)

Thank you for your criticism, and you are right about those flaws.

I try to keep focus on the faces, as it's usually the first thing that catches my eyes. I also like to keep noise removal minimum (same goes with my audio restorations )

I actually had a "later" version of that picture, and now it should also have those glitches fixed you mentioned (at least i hope i fixed them)
