Remove green from baby picture...

I'm a newlywed. Got married on 7-7-07. My wife has been through two house fires and has lost almost everything from her childhood, including many baby pictures.

She was given a baby picture as a wedding gift by her aunt. The only problem with it is that it looks like it's been through a lot. It's bent, has some scratches, stains, etc.

Just wanted to see if someone could work some magic on this photo.

Hi jacannon,

Welcome to RetouchPro. The main purpose of this site is to help members retouch their own work. I did just a little so that you could see that your picture has possibilities. If you do retouching, it would be helpful to know what program you use. Not all members use the same program. I am not a professional retoucher but will give it another go this evening when I return from work unless someone else has done it.

I use Photoshop CS3.

The green on the picture is my main concern. I know that I could use the healing brush on it or the clone tool. The only thing is, I don't want it to end up looking like a water-color painting.

Hi,
I am a newbie, new to restoring and to this forum. But I did spend an hour or two on your photo, and here is my effort. Certainly a good one for restoration .

Re: Remove green from baby picture...

Here's a start... I only messed with it for about 30 minutes. A lot of Healing Tool and also used Polaroid twice to remove the smaller light/dark scratches... I know where her dress meets her left leg needs to be softened as well...

Forgive my English, but Spanish, and I am not write very well
I did it with patience based Clone stamp with normal mode, lighten and darken with opacity of 15-25% and patch tool and healing brush tool
I made a paths of the baby to separate Background and this will apply a filter surface
The baby is one of the techniques applied to the skin is in the tutorials
