    You have a yellow shift color. Try a blue photo filter and some highlights and shadows

      Well thats a tiny picture you posted. Upload a larger size and one can see it better. The faces of the couple second from our left appears to be desaturated and there is a cast and several other things that could be improved.

        Its a composit. First left is blue, the second couple is almost sepia, and the far right is very red.

          Yes, I took three other pictures, and made selections, to show them at different ages, so how do i blend all the pictures together to make it look like it was taken at the same time? thank you for your help

            I would start by scanning all the individual photos at 300dpi. Then I would adjust the picture that is going to have the background that you would be using. Do a levels, hue/satuation on it and if necessary an unsharp mask on it. Before you select any of the individuals from the other pictures, do the same steps only now trying to match the selected individuals to the main picture. Now when you select them to put on the main picture they will blend in. In the case of the black and white photo, you will have to hand color them to blend in with the rest of the picture.

            Since you really want the picture to be more of the individuals, I would crop away some of the sky and also put the couples closer together.

            I have done a quick example of that to show you.

            I hope this helps you somewhat.

                How would you improve this picture

                Did my best to improve this picture. To me there is little bit more work on it. The mom wants the dirt removed from the knee still. But this is what I have so far. The larger versions of the origanals are here

                Hello everyone,

                I am having a heck of a time with this picture. I can't seem to do anything with the man on the right without getting too much contrast or making it too dark. I'm using Photoshop 7. The quality of the picture was terrible to start with and this problem isn't making it...

                "remove" blood from a picture
                by Cinn314
                Hi all,

                I am attempting to remove the blood from the attached picture as the mother has asked me to try. I am very much a retouching beginner.

                Picture 2 is where I am so far by using healing and patch tools.

                However I feel there may be a better way to do...
