Re: Photo Restoration - 1922 Photo

If I ever get the hang of posting correctly around here, it will be wonderful, I do so that each of you with each rendition of the picture of the "The Lady" has just so impressed me at where I can eventually get if I keep at it. I am a retired senior who has taken on photo recovery and restoration in my family as a hobby.

Luv, I worked diligently on the 40s family and could not get that skin issue correct, I keep having that problem.

BillFrey, I did rescan as you suggested at 1200 dpi with all the scanner enhancement turned off. I now have to sign up for a place that I can post it for you as it will not reduce in size for web image in photo shop.

I will be working on this project

Re: Photo Restoration - 1922 Photo

I have been cloning on a duplicate copy of the original layer. I tried cloning on a blank layer as was suggested, but I could not get any effects to show. I have had this issue before where I have to flatten the image before I am ready because I need to get to the base image, or I go work there and then move up the layers to see what the final looks like. I am working with the help of the Restoration and Retouching book by K. Eismann, but am certainly incorporating the tips from each of you. Again this is a wonderful experience.

Make sure you have "Sample all layers" checked in the options bar

Re: Photo Restoration - 1922 Photo

fascinating picture.

i did this over several days, so my exact steps are long lost. however, it was a LOT of clone, some push, airbrush, clarify, an adjustment layer or two and most all of my standard fare.

however, there was one big difference i did here this time. the image, as posted, had 'the blocks'. the blocks are those small blocks, usually 8 x 8 pixels where some operation like sharpening has been done. this is done by program or a scanner. it's a decent method but often leaves a very discernable pattern which, when you start working in close or blowing things up in a photo print, is not so desirable. therefore, i ran a .jpg artifact removal, almost before anything else, to get rid of this pattern.
