Re: Antique Photo Restoration Guidance

Thanks for everyone's input.

Obaldy, what method did you use to smooth out the grainy-ness?

Re: Antique Photo Restoration Guidance

rpm4242, I used Imagenomics Noiseware on a copied layer then masked back portions ..
I also used the Patch Tool extensively on portions that did not smooth out very good and after each patch used Shft+Ctrl+F (Fade)
Then matched colors and painted faces

bazza64, I had Aussie Pilots fly me around quite a bit and we partied pretty hard at times..

Kraellin, Nope nuttin fer me... They all whipped my a$$.. I did the IM, BS, 400 Free... Gawd that was a long time ago... now I can't even get out of the Tub..

Re: Antique Photo Restoration Guidance

I really don't know if this is an improvement or not. I was using the image to experiment with a series of filters, adding grain, smoothing and re-filtering. The main advantage of this image is that other than the removal of a few large black spots on the faces that were obviously not texture, there had been no painting or interpretation (and I did not clean up the background either). Anyway, I decided to post it just in case you found it useful.

Re: Antique Photo Restoration Guidance

The jpeg artifacts prevent details recovery. Probably a tiff scan would be a better option, but still it gets to the point of "splitting hair".

Re: Antique Photo Restoration Guidance

I did some brightness/contrast adjustments and low opacity cloning. Also some selected levels. I usually get these too smooth. I tried not to do that on this one.
