Here's a belter!

Afternoon people,

Here's one I wouldn't mind some help with, if someone wouldn't mind.

I have run the FFT filter on this to get rid of most of the texture, but apart from that it is as was scanned.

I have it scanned at 1200 dpi 8" x 6" but obviously had to knock it down for posting, as you will see, a lot of the damage, ie. the red patches, is on the red channel, can somene explain how to replace that channel and then get the colour correct again please? otherwise it's just going to be a matter of patching, cloneing etc.

Attached is a copy of what I've done so far, as well as the original.

John

you pulled out some nice detail, getting rid of those wrinkles is going to be a challenge (doable) but a challenge!..nice work!

Its OK to do that, but I would use clone & heal with a frequency separation.

Wow that is really impressive! Maybe the faces are a bit on the pale side?

Chillin,
Thanks for the advice, I will remember that for the next one I do, I've had enough of this one after about 5 hours :-o The attachment here doesn't show all the cracks, only the larger ones and I've managed to get rid of most of them.

fen,
Why thank you, as for the slightly pale faces, I have been informed that he did work down the mines here in Yorkshire ;-)

Anyhow, this is what they got.

Many thanks....John

Re: Here's a belter!

hi john,

nice job. i'd do one last step, however. look closely at his suit and her dress. these is some odd texture stuff on both. i'd add at least one more blank layer and do some light airbrushing and when i say light, i mean very light, like 1% or 2% opacity on the brush. just select the appropriate color and spray lightly over those odd areas. this will give the whole a cleaner look.

but again, nice job.
