  • Help required with a photocopy of a photo!


    I am new to the site and looking for some advice please. I don't have the original photo of my mum and dad who have now passed, I only had a photocopy on my Iphone. It is of very poor quality and wondered if anyone could advice on what to use just to sharpen it up as much as possible. I am not looking for it to be perfect as I know that will not be possible, but only so I can put it in a frame and that it looks ok (even if it is only from a distance).

    Thanks in advance.

    Tracy, Welcome to RetouchPRO
    Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.
    Poke around, have fun!
    Please post a copy of the picture so we might be able to advise you on the possibilities.
    If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described in this thread:
    (Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images..)
    The save for web function in the latest Photoshop is hidden under File>Export>Save for web (legacy)

    This thread explains (How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads )

    If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also, always please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links). (link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload)
    Other Hosts if you do not have your own site: (3Meg max, free) (2Meg max, free) (1 Meg max free, 5 Meg PRO) (100 Meg per file, free) (2GIG, free) post a link in the thread to the site that is hosting the larger image. (link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload)
    Welcome aboard !

      Is this image too saturated? I wanted to create a emotional hallmark card, photograph of this beautiful creature. How is the composition, and detail?...
