Re: Glass photo?

Had to give this a try
copy layer
Polaroid scratch and dust light setting on another layer copy, hide all masked, then a whole bunch of clicks on each white spot combined the top two layers then copied the new layer and ran Polaroid scratch and dust again with the light block unchecked to repair the dark spots.. hide all masked, then a whole bunch of clicks on each dark spot
copied top layer then did a bunch of levels and curves layers using the mask to isolate areas I was lightening or darkening and finally some healing in some of the really dark areas found some eyes that sort of fit then faded them out to look real to me..

lots more to do but I gave up after three hours in frustration as to how much more there was to be done... Good luck Britsdad

Re: Glass photo?

Well I gave it a go. If I were to be doing a restore on this one I would be using quite a bit of artistic
but heres my attempt. I used a high pass sharpen neat image and a few mid/highlight adjustments.
