retouch of an old photo booth picture
It was taken at a carnival photo booth when my mother was in her early twenties. I sent the photo out for repair about 2 years ago as a present for their 50th wedding anniversary. About a year ago when i started restoring photos i tried this one but was not happy with it. The repaired version now is better but would like some feed back on ways to blend the face better. I can't seem to get the healing brush or clone tool to work very good for me. All repair work done on this photo was done using the patch tool in photoshop. I hope i put this in the right place. All comments and suggestions are welcome. "Title should read Retouch of an old photo booth picture"

Re: retouch of an old photo booth picture
i changed the thread name for you.
in answer to your question, try making a mask/selection of the skin area and adding some noise. i havent tried this on your picture, but it could even things out. if the add noise by itself doesnt do it, try blurring the noise with a gaussian blur.
i'd also add some shadowing to the face. airbrush shld do this nicely. do this on a separate layer and blur this too as needed.
