To save the picture for posting, instead of using 'Save As', use 'Save For Web'. You'll get a much smaller file size that retains the dimensions of the photograph.

Re: Great picture

What a beautiful portrait and everyone's renditions are marvelous.

I gave this a try too and followed (I forget who mentioned using the channel mixer thing) but this was my first try at using that and I was very happy to have discovered its usefulness .

From there, I think I just did my usual cloning (very little needed) and then I think I ... I did some dodging and burning to get the b&w to a good point. Then I began colorizing with different layers for the few different colors, all with layer masks and I think that most of them were set as "overlay" with different opacity values. Then, I saved as "for web" and decreased the quality of it so that it would reduce to the 100kb size.

I think that minus many, many interruptions, this probably took me 2.5 hours to do. How bad is that for a semi-newbie? Or, maybe I should ask, how much faster should I be and learning techniques that could quicken the time? Also, not happy with the beard-border on the side left side, not sure what I needed to do to make it blend better.
(Please be kind.)

Thanks!

Re: Great picture

Dmax, thanks for sharing your technique, I've never used the soft brush blending mode but can see that I need to try it out. You did a beautiful job and I really like the colors you used too.
