Re: Need help with grandparents picture

Since it is a front view and he seems very symetrical, many people would simply select his left side, copy to a new layer, flip it and move it into place as his right side. You can them make a few subtle changes to make it look less obvious. Select smaller areas if you wish, or pick a large area and simply erase areas on the upper layer that make it seem un-natural.

I copied some of the right side of his suit to a new layer, then flipped it horizontally to repair the left side. Same with the background and the chair repairs. The rest is cloning, painting and a little sharpening.

The sepia version was done with a hue/saturation layer set to colorize.

If you are in fact talking to me, I just enlarged the canvas just a tad bit and then used replace mode of the healing brush tool, for the bottom I just followed the angle of the small portion of good edge of the table and filled everything in on the way up.
