Smile Christmas Gift Needs Restoration!

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here and have been reading the boards for a while. There's a wealth of experience and skill here! I'm looking forward to learning more as I read. Right now, I have a restoration problem. A friend came to me with an WWII vintage B&W image needing restoration that is far beyond my skill set. I'm wondering if anyone is willing to take a swing at it. It's a Christmas gift so there's not much time. Below is a small jpeg od the image and here's a link to the hi-res...

Please feel free to email me.

Thanks!

Hi Kate,

Try this link to a zipped .psd file.

Re: Christmas Gift Needs Restoration!

I tried that and I dont get the photo as its a .psd file. Can you save it in a different format and maybe post it to photobucket? and send the address?

PSD for PS 11 (CS4). If you do not have zip opener, go to download.com and download any of the free zip readers.

If its the PSD file, that you cant open, then I sugest the owner post the jpeg or TIFF somewhere elce. I'll post it later if Steve dosent get back in a timely mannor.

Image size is 2100/1500. Its a bit small for a really good retouch but if you cannot rescan then it will do ok.

Re: Christmas Gift Needs Restoration!

lol yes, I have a zipper...
What I use is psppro photo2 and when I try to open that 'unzipped' file I get a response of :
The color model of this PSD file is not supported.
Thats why I had asked to upload it to an area to where as I can retain access to a different format ie tiff, gif, blah blah

Re: Christmas Gift Needs Restoration!

Thanks Keven! If you could repost the tif that would be really helpful! I'm away at a friend's house with no access to any version of photoshop

Keven's right Kate. People zip files to make them smaller or zip a folder to send several files in one package. Any of the free expanders will work. Just pick the one that is right for your operating system.

Thanks for your interest.

Steve

Re: Christmas Gift Needs Restoration!

I understand the use of zip. what I dont understand is why my winzip doesnt open your file but does everything else I unzip. what am I doing wrong?

Re: Christmas Gift Needs Restoration!

Here is the TIFF.

Just type in the three letters and wait for the free timer

Here is the JPEG.

Here is a smaller JPEG on flickr (not full sized)

For your next ZIP... you may want to do a self extracting zip so anyone even if they dont have a reader can open it.

Its kind of fool proof... for ones that know a little about clicking next....
