Re: Require Advice on This Aged Photo

Hi MJ
You have done a wonderful job with this photo, I am still working on mine, I have nearly completed half of it, I have left the guys in the picture til last, as they seem a bit more difficult to fix. This photo was given to me by a friend to fix and yes as far as I know it was taken in the early sixties.
I am off to work this morning, so I won't get too much more done on this photo until this afternoon. But as soon as I get this done, I will definately post it back on here. It seems to be taking me ages to do this.
Anyhow again thank you all for your help, it is much appreciated.
Regards
Michelle

Hello again. As for the curve numbers used..
(These are from bottom left to top right)
Input/output: 32/0, 82/46, 143/128, 193/188

I did a second curve adjustment with some minor adjusts to midtones to lighten the skin up a bit.


I ran the noise filter with settings of:
Strength 8
Preserve Detail 6
Sharpen 29

You'll want to go in and do some finer cleanup around the eyes and mouth areas where some noise artifacts still remain (I used the smudge tool), careful not to affect areas of detail(eyes, mouth..etc).

Re: Require Advice on This Aged Photo

I tried my hand at it too. Generated the missing curtain using the fibers filter on a layer filled with grey. I then ran a motion blur on the curtain with the angle set to 90 degrees. I then ran a levels adjustment layer on it to bring out the contrast in values in the folds.
