    Re: oops ... I lost her hair

    One thing I like to do if I've botched something and I didn't save the layers is just cut and paste a copy of the original picture back over top. On this new layer put in a black layer mask then use a 30ish% opacity soft brush to put back in the parts I want...

    Thanks much for the info. Only part that didn't mesh w/ what I was asking is the "downloading". I had meant downloading pics onto my computer from a flash card or directly from a camera, not over the net. Any input on that would be appreciated. I've heard conflicting stories about...

    Seeking Upgrade Advice

    Hi,

    I retouch photos for our wedding company and my boss recently authorized me to spend about $1000 (might have a little flex if I can really convince him it'd save time) or so to make my system faster. I'm currently running a Dell Dimension 4700 with 1.5gb ram, 2.8ghz Intel cpu, ATI...

    Retouch 3

    Ok, just finished with version 3. Really starting to shape up nicely thanks to all the great help you folks have provided. :-) Am learning a lot. So glad to have stumbled upon this site.

    As you suggested, Caitlen, I superimposed my first retouch on the second...

    Hmm the screen technique is a great one if you don't have the shadows/highlights from Photoshop CS or CS2. But I'd suggest when you try it in the future you might want to mask out the forground rather than letting it become washed out then correcting afterward.

    You seem to have lost...

    Thanks much all for the great input and your work on the picture.

    Caitlin, that's an excellent point, thanks. You even manage to get some of the texture, destroyed by Neat Image, from the couch back with your method. I plan to attempt what you've done and also to desaturate the grey...

    Retouch 2

    Ok, I used the redeye tool, some auto levels, and Shadow/Highlights to get the image to a decent starting point. (I found that if I tried using redeye after the Neat Image it didn't work right for me.)

    Then I moved on to Neat Image and got rid of a large chunk...

    My attempt

    Ah, I see from the welcome message that it's ok to use multiple posts to post more than 100kb worth of pictures on the subject. Cool, then here's my first attempt at this pic. I wasn't satisfied w/ the results, but it was about all I knew how to do with such a damaged photo...

    Underexposed on a Cheap Camera :-(

    Hi folks,

    I'm new around here, and relatively new to photo retouching and restoration. But I'm finding it very fun, and the site has really helped me in fixing up the wedding pictures that I often work on. Thanks much

    Recently my cousin sent me one of his favorite shots...
