retouching face, smaller than 4x6 scan

That is the photo, copy it to your computer to work on it. File size is approx 700k.

We're trying to clean up the detail in the faces, we know about all the other stuff that needs to be done, but this is our biggest concern. The original photo was about 3x5, so I'm not sure what all can be done with it. I know you guys are great, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Also any suggestions on how to scan better, it was scanned at 300dpi without using anything like digital ice. Scanned with epson scanner and their software.

Also, if you have any suggestions about removing flower and table from front, and fixing the dress, please comment on that as well.

Thanks A Ton!

Is this what you wanted done to the faces? If this is accedptable, I simply used the Degrunge tutorial method found on this site. I also ran it through Focus Magic a thrid party photoshop plugin.


On rereading the post I saw the flower problem. I am not a professional retoucher, but had fun trying.
