Re: Too far gone to fix?

Hi,
I've just launched my new website www.marthasdarkroom.com and I'm trying to get awareness going. I could have a look at this for you for free as a test image. Just go to my site and use the upload form to send me the image and I'll sort it for you as a freebie. All I ask is if you're happy with it maybe you could write a sentence testimonial that I can add to the site. Thanks

Re: Too far gone to fix?

Big thanks to forum users "Dataflow" (added a watermark or is that squiggle part of the damage?) and "sergio2263" for their help so far. If you do get more time, I'd love to see the results (and I'd be happy to put something in your PayPal tips jar).

Apart from seeing the photo come back to life, it's just so great that you people are willing to help a stranger. Thanks again.

MarthasDarkroom: Okay, I'll take you up on your offer and will post the results.

Re: Too far gone to fix?

Image received, thanks, its an easy clean up job, the difficulty will be to bring back the colour convincingly. Its pretty far gone, it may as well be in mono. It will be fun to give it a go though, thanks for giving me a good test to work on and being the first person to use the upload form. I'll work on it tonight and hopefully email it back to you tomorrow.

Re: Too far gone to fix?

Wow, I tried to convert to jpg and place in camera raw to edit, maybe Lab, but could not get the color...checked the photo with eyedropper and it was to blown out.. I liked the idea of converting to b/w and color it.. What was driving me crazy is to know the croc is green and I could not do anything.. so new at this..

I agree bringing back the original colour is far gone but the photo can be restored and re-colourised in full. Most b/w or loss colour photos can be brought back to colour in full.

please see examples of my work b/w colourised in full.

You've colourised the photo in the old fashion tinted way perhaps try to get the skin tone off their clothes. The colours seems to have spread all over the place.
