Re: I need help with my photo.....

Cloned and attacked some of the "other issues".

I was testing the new "Clone Source" window in PS3.
Not too impressed - seemed to get in the way more than helping.

Re: please help me 3rd time is the charm

I posted to this thread yesterday, but for some reason my picture is not present. Strange because it was when I logged out last night.

Sorry if you thought I'd ignored you Wintergoddess.

Here's the picture I posted (just a quick clone job)

My apologies, for some reason I can't upload the picture at the moment.

EDIT: It appears you double posted Wintergoddess and I replied in the other post.

Please don't double post, as it causes just this kind of problem.

I've moved the posts from the other thread into this one.

No worries, just don't do it again or I'm afraid we'll have to introduce you to the RetouchPro ducking stool.

Re: please help me 3rd time is the charm

I'm still struggling at restoration and trying to emulate all of the talented people here at RP; I think I've improved since I first found RP but there's a long road ahead of me . Wanted to give this one a try, such a happy face.

Basically, I started out by duplicating the main layer (as always), copied and pasted a set of 3 tiles, transformed by perspective, adjusted the saturation on them and then duplicated that layer 2 more times for the other damaged tiles on the right and adjusted for perspective and color. For the tears/heavy scratches, mainly, I used the clone tool, a little bit of patching, and maybe one or two "copy & paste" sections of the hair.

Found some bubbles on a disc of stock photos that I had and copied, pasted, sized, did a mask for revealing and lowered the opacity to about 90%.

Merged all the layers and then did a minor hue and saturation adjustment, don't remember what settings, I just stopped adjusting when I was somewhat happy with the results; wasn't quite sure what I wanted.

Downsized the file for submitting here.

Wintergoddess:

What a great photo.

To repair a photo like this, as Dave said you need to use the clone tool and heal tool. I have found that by working on your photo at 200-300% and cloning from areas on both sides of the damage the cloning is harder to detect. After working at 200-300% go back to 100% and make any changes that may show up at that size.

I reduced the yellow in the photo a bit with a color balance (moving yellow toward blue), and did selective sharpening on the photo (ex. eyes, mouth, hair).
