Help fixing a double exposure
 
First post here :grin: I was wondering if anyone could help me fix an old photo which is double exposed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

(The Porsche is what I'm interested in.)

hi screwloose and welcome to RP.

the question is, how much time do you want to put in on this? there's a lot to fix here and a fair amount of it is going to have to be manual operations like cloning and painting. the good news is there's a lot of detail still in the photo and a lot can be done to improve the pic. the bad news is the time and cost.

you could do a 10 minute fix with things like 'fade correction', tone mapping, noise reduction, contrasting tools and some of the other automated fixes, but none of those are going to remove the double exposure, they'll only bring out the picture more.

the next question is, what tools are you using or going to use and how much are you looking for others to do this for you on this site and how much are you willing to do yourself?

to remove the double exposure is going to be a much more difficult process. it runs across the car, across the children and part of the background. i'd go with cloning and painting and smudging to help this.

this took a fair amount of work. i did most of the things i recommended up above and then went to clone, airbrush and push for the most part. i also used a couple hue/sat adjustment layers to tone the car color and sky a bit.

Travel2207, from FAQ:
"Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?
No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo."

That said, there are members who will do restorations like yours (for practice?).

I didn't ask for someone to do it. not sure how that question got inserted in my reply. Just wanted someone's opinion. Thanks.

It's fixable. All it would take would be a good eye for detail and lots of patience (plus a good measure of frustration).

I too have a problem with a accidental double exposure. I inadvertently used my daughters 1st birthday pictures to take pictures at the lake. I have cake in the sunset. I don't have much re touch expertise and trying to figure our how to get these pictures recovered. What can I do?

Best bet is to post your photo so we can see what can be done and able to advice you the best way to solve the problem.
