Re: Need help on restoring My mothers phoro

It's much to small to work on. Could you post a photo at 100K please.

Re: Need help on restoring My mothers phoro

Klassylady is correct that small pictures are difficult if not impossible to work on to get really satisfactory results. I am strictly a novice in this area, but wanted to give it a try.

Re: Need help on restoring My mothers phoro

have we all forgotten the resize tool? (btw, i used bilinear, not bicubic on this one)

try this one. since i'm allowed 200k per image, this may be better.

Re: Need help on restoring My mothers phoro

I used the initial 20 K photo which is much too small as already mentioned. At any rate the blue channel was gone so I started off using the Apply Image command in Photoshop to restore the blue channel. After that other color adjustments. I would advise to look at the the various channels in RGB and CYMK modes and use Apply Image or possible the channel mixer to restore the color.

Hi DCobb

Since I'm new to this forum I have no idea on how to even begin to
try and restore photos and think you have done a great job on taking the cracks out of the photo especially the big piece in the forehead, the hair I'm not to sure about and I thought the the eyebrow was a little thick Your input is very much appreciated

I have uploaded three attachments of my mother
copy of the orgininal resized by Kraellin
Lee Clare2 was done some years ago which is good but I did not like the way the blouse was closed in around the neck, Lee clare4 was also done a few years ago but I was not real pleased about the skin tone.the hair style is a little differant than the orginal but liked what was done .

The photos I'm sure would need to be resized

I know I'm most likely being to fussy about detail but I do really appreciate all the help an input in to this photo

Hi Phil

Your input in to my mothers photo is much appreciated, I like the colors you used you kept the hair looking much like the orginal I know the big piece missing from the forehead would be hard to work with, it is a little smuged making her look like she has a bit of a pug nose.

There are veriations from the orginal in the thread
and hope you and all will continue to work on it

I'm a little excited or should I say over excited to see the reponse I'v got from my mothers photo

You are all great people

Re: Need help on restoring My mothers phoro

Well thanks coraki and welcome to retouch pro. This site is loaded with folks who are really good at retouching. There is a lot of discussion that could be had about this photo since it has so many exciting problems. Another problem I noticed with the photo was that is was loaded with jpeg artifacts. These really messed up the photo. So when you work on this photo, be sure to scan it and save it as a lossless file like photoshop or Tiff.
