Slow progress

Firstly may appologise for reregistering with another name - For some reason I could not get my original (ukpapasmurf) to work.

I have spent a lot of time trying to get somewhere with this photo
I hope that what I have done looks o.k, but I have got stuck on the colours of the legs,arms and upper body - they seem to be very blotchy and whatever I do does not make things better.

Would be most obliged if someone could help

many thanks Smurf

Re: Slow progress

Make a duplicate layer, run gaussian blur then mask out the areas of the blur that you don't want effected.

Re: Slow progress

smurf,
I think the colors are too saturated, I would lower the opacity. Also fix where the color of her hair bleeds into the curtain.
Are you going to add color to with window? Try a Gradient Sky blue to white??
Very cute photo.

Re: Slow progress

smurfing,

post the restored black and white. a good way to get some help is to let others play and post what they did.

Re: Slow progress

Before colorizing or retouching, I would try to bring back the original colors as much as possible
