Thumbs up Re: Silvering on Old Photos

Thanks for everyones help on this. I Like the work everyone did, especially Craig, I'm like you, I really enjoy getting old photo's to work on. Valentina, I also liked what you achieved. One thing I like about Photoshop - so many ways to achieve the results you want.

I've been working on another old photo for the same client, and put this one on the back burner - time to get cracking on it and try everyones suggestions- what a great Group.

Thanks
Ellemir

Smile Re: Silvering on Old Photos

Hi Craig, I've pfaffed around and tweaked this photo until I think it's as good as I'm going to get it. Even tried using the air brush technique you suggested, which I think didn't work out too badly for a first attempt. Anyway once printed this photo looks a lot better than the original - hope the client agrees :-)

Again thank you all for the help.

You've nicely brought out the bottle (so to speak). Looks good to me!

Re: Silvering on Old Photos

ellemir,

you did fine. i can see a little of the slivering still on the left, but that area was almost completely black, so, i'd say any client would be happy with the results. the carpet could be more consistently lit, but from what i could tell, at least part of that was from the original photo... just poor photography. so, again, nicely done!

and, you're welcome
