I cheated... copied the working layer.. did a Hue/Saturation adjustment and just moved the lighten slider to the right a small amount.. hide all mask... unmasked the dress.. then made an all white, Soft Light layer.. used the same mask as before.. lowered opacity a bit

Re: 1960 wedding picture


There are a few color casts in the photo and degradation of the photo due to the acid in the photo paper. I have some pretty handy tools here in CS4. Could you e-mail your photo at or Remember, try to scan your images around 300 DPI in order to accomplish a decent size that could be enlarged with genuine fractals etc.
