Quite often, it's just not possible to restore damaged areas (missing pixels) without either doing so artistically, or bringing in parts from another image. We also don't notice the differences on the final image, since we are not comparing before and after. Especially, when something fairly generic is replaced, i.e. a shoulder, neck, cheek, etc.

For example, I have attached part of an image where a shoulder/neckline needed to be replaced. The final opacity could easily be adjusted to make the blend as natural as needed. But, the image I show has the opacity adjusted up some for comparison.

So, I was thinking something similar could be done to add some detail to various areas, i.e. her neckline. You would need to keep it very light in order not to change the image too much. If you go too far in one spot, it forces you to do so everywhere, which gets you away from the original goal.

Re: Help and evaluation

Got it... TommyO, thanks. I've done that but with garments, not flesh.
I´ll try it too.
