Old Tintype

Who fancies a go at this one then?
I know nothing about it, other than it was in, what looks like, a home made frame, was behind glass, and had to be removed from the front. (ie. there was no removable rear to the frame)

Any advise on how to go about restoring this will be welcome :o)

John

Re: Old Tintype

Here's a quick fix using Levels, Shadows/Highlights, Dodging and conversion to grayscale (all PS native). Dust and scratches repair are extra! ;-)

Re: Old Tintype

I would fix the faces & outfits.
Keep the Tin look ( that is what it is )!
Here is what I mean.

Re: Old Tintype

Hi Britsdad.

I was unable to post due to the small size of the image, when I reduced the image to 100 kb's the image became very distorted.

So if you want a larger image so you are able to print a decent photo give me your addy and I will send one to you.

regards Carolyn
