Old Scanned picture.

I found this old Picture of my sister, I got most of it where I want, but I cannot figure out the background. Any tips? I have a pic in better quality but I had to save in low quality so I could upload. Thanks.

Re: Old Scanned picture.

Hello KSpears and welcome to RetouchPro! Your sister is well contrasted from the backgorund so you could:
- Extract her and replace the BG completely
- The BG to right is in the worst shape. You could blur it or darken it
- You could restore the BG but since it is not that remarkable, it may not be worth the effort.
Regards, Murray

60 second solution (literally). Copy right side background, flop on left, erase around elbow/hip, straighten. Looks like I took a little too much around the wrist, but you get the idea.
