Default Fix Please

This photo has lots of noise. I have tried Neat Image but it doesn't seem to help . Can someone make her look better? Please glamorize my girl. Thanks

We could do more with a higher resolution image if that's possible. ... Jack

Hi,

Here's a very quick one with what we have, a higher res image would give more range of adjustment. ... Jack

OK, this was better, I've had a quick try, and not entirely happy with the result, but not a lot of time free today.
Basically I've blurred the background to emphasise the subject ... boosted contrast in LAB colour, some work around the eyes, slight whitening + added catchlights, teeth whitened slightly then some selective sharpening of eyes and mouth to draw the viewers eye. Cropped off the right side of the pic, I don't think it helped the portrait. BTW the GF has a great smile.
With more time I think I could do better. Hope you like this one. ... Jack

Glad you like it, but no promises ... I'll give it a try when time permits, right now I have a lot of domestic commitments which must take priority.

I only came on line just now to check for an email message, and saw you'd made a reply. Cheers ... Jack.

OK, Here's another go, I've spent a couple of hours on this one, and have got a

little frustrated, I've backtracked a couple of times ... somewhere along the

line I'm getting noise creeping in and haven't figured out just where it happens,

so best to stop as is.

There's a little improvement in the eyes I think (may have overdone it some, it

does pay to be subtle with this) I'm doubting I can improve on this.

see what you think ... Jack
