Yes, Dave..... I'm thinking about hosting a Computer Smack Down and it's not gonna be pretty..... I'm talking hardcore reboots using the 'Power On/Off' switch .... no using the little girlie 'Start' button....... and spillin' my coke into the keyboard...... well, um....OK.... so I've already done that part ... but the rest of it's gonna loom over the office here like a...... like a ....something that sounds real scary in computer world.....

I've found if you have problems with quirky hardware you just can't beat "jump starting" your box ........................... (if it don't start jump on it).

Maybe we could find a working trebuchet? That is after Gary is done jumping on it.

Re: Help and ideas for old photo of grandad

G'day Soakes.
I had a a go at repairing your granddad, i hope you don't mind, Don't remember all the things i did but cranked up the contrast in the end for a bit of depth. Tried to use the lest amount of cloning that i could.

Smile Re: Help and ideas for old photo of grandad

Hi toe, thanks for taking the time to have a go at restoring the photo of my grandad, you did quite a good job also. Its apparent that there are many ways of restoring photos achieving different but excellent results. Im a novice at trying to restore damaged photos but with the guidance and tips and ideas on this forum i am now able to do things that i could never have done before.

I must admit that although everyone did a great job i was most impressed with what solitear did, , it just shows what is possible.
