About the zooming in and out thing... I was reading a forum member's blog recently and I remembered a trick I had completely forgotten about for some reason. You can open a new window of the picture you're working on and set the zoom further away so you can keep a general view of what you're doing without constantly zooming in and out.

This is probably even better when you have two monitors..

Hi atomicdog,

Used a levels adjustment layer, individual channels, bring the sliders into the majority of the information.
Use curves adj layer, grab the midpoint and take it up - do not look at the babies dress at this point, keep your eye on the other white clothes - when happy add mask to layer and paint over the baby's dress, and grandmas arms which I forgot to do, she looks like she's elbow deep in flour.
Merge down, dup layer, set opacity to multiply, add mask, now paint over everything except the faces - I would have left the b/ground/building darker if I had thought about it more - but do what suits you.
Next, fix the creases.
I ran the image through neat image, took the opacity down, added layer mask, inverted mask and painted over their faces.
Sharpen if you want - I used the high pass filter with layer set to overlay, added mask, inverted mask and painted over their faces - took opacity down to suit.

You can get a really nice image out of this if you take some time with it.

+1

If you post a link to a larger file, I'll give it a roll.
