  • Old wedding

    We have just found a couple of old photos of a family wedding in the 70's
    Have tried many different ways to make these more acceptable without any joy

    Would someone have a look for us please (and clean if possible) and if you dont mind, how to achieve the results
    Hope I am not being too cheeky in asking


    I have posted them here:-

    When I clicked on your links, all I got was a sign-in--no pics.

        Smurf, the pages say that the link is private and that we do not have permission. It looks like you have not set these up for unrestricted access.

              This is what I have done so far to this image, you can go and heal, clone, patch etc.,

              Open image, duplicate image.
              Levels adjustment layer, go to individual channels and pull the right and left sliders into the majority of information.
              Merge down, duplicate layer.
              Snapshot.
              Use the shadow/highlight filter - about 10 for both +5 for midtones. Set blend mode to screen and take the opacity down to 50%.
              Use hue/sat adjustment layer, go to red channel and and set the saturation slider to -30. Set the blue slider to -50. Click save.
              Take snapshot.
              Merge layers, duplicate layer.
              I used neat image set to smooth the image and set the layer opacity to 50%.
              If the guy on the left hand side isn't all that important to the image, I would straighten the image a little bit and crop him out. I've left him as is.
              Take snapshot.
              Merge layers, duplicate layer.
              At this point you can go crazy with your patch tool, healing and clone brush tools.
              Obviously needs a lot more work done to it, but this is to show that it is possible to rescue them to preserve the memories.

                Many thanks for your efforts

                Sadly the guy on the right is going to be the bridegroom in about 2 hrs from when the pic was taken

                sorry

                  The first pic appears in much better condition than the second one. Did an auto levels, did a hue/saturation/lightness adjustment on the yellows to remove the yellow from the base of the photo and then did a highpass overlay to sharpen a little, little being the operative word, otherwise you bring out a strong grain

                    Re: Old wedding

                    Second photo, did a levels which introduced both an orangy diagonal frequency as well as a horizontal frequency. Fixed the obvious abberations with clone and then saved. Ran the saved version through neat image and saved the result. Reopened the original, so far fixed version, and brought in the neat image version which I placed as a new layer in overlay mode. Still far from decent though

                      Hi everyone

                      Certainly looking better than anything I have achieved so far.
                      I shall keep trying (using some of the methods used by yourselves) in attempt to familiarise myself with the techniques

                      many thx

                        Re: Old wedding

                        Smurf, I applied the B channel to the image in luminosity mode to even out the tone, then did a color correction to get rid of the blue cast. There are adequate Black, white, and gray points to do that in levels or curves. A little painting on a blank layer set to color blend can touch up some of the other colors. Partial touch up attached.
                        Regards, Murray

                            A better scan would yield much better results.
                            I had to use FFT filter. There was some noise pattern & I think it was caused by the scanner. I might be wrong.

                              Chillin
                              Again I congratulate you on a super job
                              These are far better than anything I produced

                              Doesn't mean I will give up - I've got a target to achieve now

                              Many thanks all
