Re: G Grandparents restoration

Thank you so very much 0lBaldy for your help with the photo.It is so much improved and I very much appreciate it.
Also thank you for your words of encouragement!.
I have installed the Gimp and though it seems a little overwhelming in comparison to
Microsoft Digital I will endeavour to give it a shot.
I struggle grasping the layers,curves and all those elements but will persevere.
Again many thanks

Re: G Grandparents restoration

the old adage of 'garbage in = garbage out' applies to digital images. a poor scan makes it that much harder to get a good restoration result. so, always do the best scan you can.

your current postings of the image are still a bit too small for good results. i know our 100k limit makes it difficult, but study the various ways of posting and i think you can make this better. i'm posting two images here to show you the difference of image sizes. the small one is the original size. the larger is 1000 percent of the original. notice in the small one how you see all the 'boxes' (pixels) of the image. it looks blocky and low detailed. in just blowing up your original and doing nothing else, it helped remove some of that. a better scan and larger image size would also help this a great deal.

Re: G Grandparents restoration

Thank you very much Kraellin for both your advice and example.
I see what you mean now, though not sure where to go with it.
I am a complete novice but attempting to learn.
Again many thanks, I very much appreciate it.
