Old Tin Type Photo Help

Can someone help me with suggestions on how to restore this photo.
I thank anyone who tries to assist with this restore. I used to be a regular but have not been doing much restoration lately. I would appreciate any help.
Thanks Neb

Your JPEG could be corrupt, try resaving it under a different name. If you still can't get it to upload you could upload to imageshack.

you could post the larger version at ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO)-- then post a link here in this thread to the site that is hosting your larger version.

I had that problem when I was new, you'll get used to it all

You could rename your image, make sure that the image is under 100k and try again, or get an account at one of the free image storage places and add a link in your post.

Hi Neb,

nice to see you!!!

It did that to me once .... If I remember well, closing my browser, renaming the image I wanted to upload, and opening my browser again solved the problem ... always provided the image you wish to upload has a valid extension: bmp, doc, gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg, pdf, png, psd, txt, zip and its size is 100 KB or less...

Hope this helps...

Re: Old Tin Type Photo Help

This is a very rough try. The first thing I did was to straighten the picture. It seemed to be off 1.42 degrees. Used the healing brush set to replace. The red channel seems to be offset from the green and blue to a large degree. Did an adjustment to get the red out. Didn't do much with the background (such as replace) as I didn't know how true to the original it was to be.
