    Can't say that I agree with you there, Wayne.

    The attachment is quite small but, from what I can see, all of the important elements are in quite good shape. Eyes, mouth, hair, ears all present.

    It is, however, not a "simple" fix. You will need a bit of "artistry" to fill in the blanks on the right side of the face. Depending on you normal workflow, you may find this quite easy or extremely difficult - but it is quite "do-able".

    Like I said a few days ago...Just looking at it, you can "see" the original through the damage. Now it's just a case of getting there.

        I had a photo taken of our baby but when we have it printed you can just see some marks under her nose from a cold she had at the time.

        Help Rebuilding Baby Face
        by kbeatrice
        The second in my series of 1950's pics is severly faded. I used Flora's technique for rebuilding the image area and it worked very well except for the baby's face. The nose and lips are barely there and I'm at a loss for how to rebuild them naturally. Any hints would be greatly appreciated. ...

        Hi there,
        I admit I've been lurking for about 18 months, but that was only because I joined this site with absolutely no skills in this area hoping to learn as I read. I do attempt the challenges, and am getting better slowly but still feel that I am in the "baby steps" skill range......but...

        I've always wanted to visit the African continent to photograph all the varieties of animals there, as well as the fascinating people, but never got the money and time together to do so.

        Other people's images will have to do until I make the trip, and Darrell Gulin's trip to the Mara Reserve...
