  • 1960 wedding picture

    My Aunt has 1 picture of her wedding and I cant get it right can someone please email me and give me a hand I really need a hand with this pic
    I also attached the picture after I did what I could with it. I resized the picture I did but gave a link to my virtual desktop so if someone wants they can tinker with the original.

    Here is a link to the picture I cant resize it then it is to small to work with

      Can you post a larger image ? Unfortunately, the thumbnail is extremely small. Hence any editing would not be useful. The link in your first post is not valid.

            randyjr, Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.

            Is it possible to re-scan in color with all auto settings turned OFF.. at 600dpi resolution if possible with your scanner.. Also, use the "Save for Web" option.. make sure optimized is checked and click the little arrow just above the word "Optimized" and when the menu opens click on "optimize to file size".. another box will open where you should enter 99 in the box click "OK".. make sure that the file is now under 100K (if not then cancel .. return to edit mode and reduce the size a small amount and try again till the file gets under 100K) click "Save" and give your file an unique name then post this larger file here..

            if you want to post the larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link, but also please attach an under 100K version here (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).

            For further Info on how to size and attach images to your posts
            Click HERE

            After you post your less than 100K version here, you could also post a larger version at ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO)-- then post a link here in this thread to the site that is hosting your larger version.

            This Tutorial by Katrin Eismann might help a lot! (click Here)

                This is fast and kind of messy job. I made selections, color and levels corrections on each area. Some noise removal and high pass sharpen. I over did it on the noise, too smooth now and I didn't clean up his uniform but it can be done.

                  Check to see that you are in RGB mode and 8 bit before you use "Save for the Web" button

                    Nice clean up OlBaldy. Can I ask what you did exactly to the dress? It looks really good. Those shadows all blend nicely and it looks so clean.

                      I cheated... copied the working layer.. did a Hue/Saturation adjustment and just moved the lighten slider to the right a small amount.. hide all mask... unmasked the dress.. then made an all white, Soft Light layer.. used the same mask as before.. lowered opacity a bit

                        Thanks for the explanation. I'll have to try it. It worked great on that dress.

                            Randyjr,

                            There are a few color casts in the photo and degradation of the photo due to the acid in the photo paper. I have some pretty handy tools here in CS4. Could you e-mail your photo at [email protected] or [email protected] Remember, try to scan your images around 300 DPI in order to accomplish a decent size that could be enlarged with genuine fractals etc.
