Great picture

Found this picture of an uncle of mine. It was in an ice chest in a very wet basement. Thank goodness the somewhat air tight chest protected this and other pictures of my family. Not much to do with this photo in restoration but as you can see after scanning it in color mode it shows up some serious mold and other unknown growths. I also scanned it in a grayscale mode and no change only the mold is not in color. Question is this -- if the picture was cleaned before scanning I know it would be better but I don't know a safe way to do that. So any help with that would help. Then if I do try working it as is what procedure is going to give me the most sucess removing the colored creatures growing on the face of Uncle Dan?

Re: Great picture

This is my try

-Started with channel mixer set to monochrome: R (+29), G (100), B (-44) This went a long way to correct many of the color problems.
-Painted out the hot spot on forehead and then went over the area with the healing brush to give it matching texture.
-Brun tool
-Clone
-Healing brush and patch tool
-Contrast adjustment

Re: Great picture

After checking the channels, all them got noise individually different of amounts, the red was the best so it got least after this it was desaturated and despeckled together and colorized

Re: Great picture

this was a very good picture to work with. wasn't much damage to repair. I thought i would try my hand a coloring. I haven't done to much coloring but it was worth a try.

Re: Great picture

excellent job, dc.

and great coloration, saby, though i dont quite agree with the coat color choice.

also nice, unimatrix. a bit yellow in the face. i'd say your suit color choice is fairly close also, though a tad light, i'm thinking.

you guys been taking skill pills or something?

also, if anyone can answer the original question by bcarll that would be great.

Hi Craig,

You've right, these kind of work needs more aware, I've been waiting for the scanner when i've done. Hopefully at the weekend i'll do it againg. This is a great picture to practice. I prefere something instead of skill pills, like Villányi Cabernet Frank

Re: Great picture

If you are talking about physically cleaning the print, this might help.

Here is the site for PEC 12 a cleaning product.

You could also use Google for answers to your topic. If you are near a major city with a museum, they might have someone that could give you help.
