    cutout in picture

    I posted the original version with a cutout started, to show how I restored it.
    This may be a well know technique, but I didn't know it when I started working on the picture.

    1st try...I had tried to clone everything and had a mess.

    2nd try... I tried cutting the picture where it was torn,with the lasso I think, then used the move tool to relocate it. That left the holes in the background.
    Much easier to clone and copy and paste the background than faces.

    Thanks again for the colorization. kat

    Thanks you so much. Kat

    well

    the truth is
    Im never a 100% happy with what I do
    it's hard to know when to stop

    but the good part is that every once in a while
    you make something really really great

    and the best part is that even you know it :p

    that doesnt happend a lot to me but .. hey... Im a kid (not in real life ... I mean at restauration hehehehe)
    just never give up and dont be afraid to say

    "ok, all wrong... revert image... start from the top"

    Good idea

    Thanks for the idea of coloring. I have never tried that, I'll look for the tutorials about it.
    And thanks for the kind words about the restore. I didn't know if I could do more.
    Can't wait to see what you can do with this picture.
    Colorizing.....neat idea.
    Thanks, kat

    Does everyone have a hard time being objective when they are playing with pictures? I never know if something looks alright or not.

    welcome

    first of all

    you did a great restauration job on this pic

    all i can really think of is that you could convert your layer to greyscale and make new layers, put them to color and paint in the colors by hand

    there are great tutorials in this site where you can read the basics for that job
    I've read it and it's really not that hard :p

    good luck

    mdivad

    ps: Im playing around with your pic but i cant make a great job now cause my boss is watching so i dont surf the web.... lucky me he's not that smart hahaha

    Thanks again

    Thanks again, Photomauler, you sure are patient. That did the trick.

    Here is the restored picture. What does it need? Is it any good?
    I'm new to all of this. Had Picture It and went to Elements.

    Help.

    restore help

    Help needed. I repaired this photo and think it needs color adjustments. Could someone help with this?

    Here is the original.


    I retouched it in the next post.
