I need a starting point

I need a starting point working on this damaged slide, I use Photoshop CS2, I posted it in another forum and some folks did some work on it but I would like some advice on how, where and what to start doing to at least bring in back to a viewable photo.
Thanks

Re: I need a starting point

Hi there

It is a small slide to work on but I gave it a shot… not the best but a start. Lots of work to do...especially the eyes.

I first cropped

I opened in ACR and adjusted exposure… some tone and detail.

In the editor I adjusted the skin tone some

From there it is just cloning and healing…luckily the background is dark.

I thought the same thing, Sweetlight. I've seen this image before too.
