  • Old Tintype

    Who fancies a go at this one then?
    I know nothing about it, other than it was in, what looks like, a home made frame, was behind glass, and had to be removed from the front. (ie. there was no removable rear to the frame)

    Any advise on how to go about restoring this will be welcome :o)

    Here's a quick fix using Levels, Shadows/Highlights, Dodging and conversion to grayscale (all PS native). Dust and scratches repair are extra! ;-)

      I would fix the faces & outfits.
      Keep the Tin look ( that is what it is )!
      Here is what I mean.

                  Hi Britsdad.

                  I was unable to post due to the small size of the image, when I reduced the image to 100 kb's the image became very distorted.

                  So if you want a larger image so you are able to print a decent photo give me your addy and I will send one to you.

                  regards Carolyn

                    by philbach
                    About two days ago I took this photo of Old Sheldon Church located near Beaufort, SC. A very peaceful place now. It was built between 1745 and 1755. It was burned by the British Army in 1779. It was rebuilt in 1826 only to be burned again by the Federal Army in 1865.

                    At any rate feel...

                    Is there any one else on here who works on images while listening to old time radio?

                    I took this pic this summer out at our local country club. There is an old shack just off of the parking lot. I guess that the owner has never wanted to sell out.
                    I played with it with a black and white emboss.

                    In case any one wants to play with it, here is the original
