Help - Fix / Restoration

Hi !

I am a photographer and I know enough about photo retouch, but I am a begineer on photo restoration.

I have two images to restore, so I would like to receive tips and suggestions about how to do it.

How could I upload hi res. images ?

Thanks.

paulomachado, welcome to RetouchPRO

If you can retouch then there is little difference to a restore... restore usually means to keep honest to the original ... but the same basic tools are used in both


***~~POSTING~~~***
You can post a fairly large pictures which is under 100k using the save for web function in Photoshop as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)
This may also help some... How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads?(Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link, but also please attach an under 100K version here (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).
I you do not have your own site to host your images.. then some alternative Image Hosts are: ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO)-- mediafire.com (100Meg per file) Plus many other hosting sites... then post a link here in the thread to the site that is hosting your larger image.

cloning by eye. I studied the pattern and pulled out from the rest of the curtain what I needed. If you look close you can see all the mistakes...lol

Re: Help - Fix / Restoration

nice, kate

on your first one, go back and look at the shadow under the curtains. it's been removed and we kinda need that here.

and on your second, also nice i think i'd take that gray area on the floor to the left out, though. in the original, it seems to be a natural shadow, but in your rendition, i'd just clone over it from the other part of the floor.

HA thanks Craig, devil is in the details!
Your right about the left shadow now that you mention it. I try to keep as original as I can even if I dont like the original. but I agree it would look nicer without the shadow.
hrumph, now to figure out how to make shadow curtains....cant I just make shadow puppets???

Re: Help - Fix / Restoration

much better on the first one there.

i'm a little surprised you didnt just clone in the shadows from the original, but this now looks much more believable
