Newbie Suggestions on restoration?

Hi Guys, Here's a bit of a challenge for you! This picture has been compressed right down from it's original size of 1,755 kb as I can't load anything on here bigger than 100kb! Anyway, this picture is a copy of the original where someone else tried to restore it before we had digital imaging so not sure what they did. I have no idea where the original is but it was torn into four parts. Now here is the problem, the little girl's mouth has been obliterated! How would you guys tackle this one?

Re: Suggestions on restoration?

Highlander363, Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, take part in some of the discussions, challenges, etc. have fun!

WOW! just a little pixelation there, huh!

Is the original that pixelated or would the following help get a better copy for us to work on:
If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described here: Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (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 in the thread, but also please attach an under 100K version, as you did here.. (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).

Other Hosts if you do not have your own site: ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) photobucket.com (1 Meg max free, 5 Meg PRO) mediafire.com (100 Meg per file, free) post a link in the thread to the site that is hosting the larger image.

Hi, Thanks for that, I've managed to reduce it down by changing it to 300 dpi and saving for web as a JPEG! Hopefully this will give you a better idea.

Cheers

Re: Suggestions on restoration?

LOL, I already worked on the first pixelated pic... but would still do the same... use the big girls mouth and free transform (warp) it and color correct a bit to fit

I'm so glad you said that, because that's what I did and they are sisters so the mouths are very similar especially at that age! Cheers again.

Re: Suggestions on restoration?

i went with a reconstruction from the data to hand in the lips. i believe there was enough data (with a little imagination) to rebuild from the same area. probably took longer, though.
