Me again. I have this picture of my other half, it was the only thing that survived his parents house fire, sadly they died too....so you can imagine the sentimental value....:sad: Could someone have a go at patching this one and let me know how to go about it. I did have a try, but mine came out like the picture had paint splots on it. Thanks

so much..

I don't know about Elliot (who did a fine job btw) but mine was done using a pencil in photoshop, one pixel at a time to blend the colors back into the white spots on the face and hair. The wall paper that I did fix, was cloning.. you can kind of tell where I did that..

Best wishes to you and your other half.

Jeff

since everyone else restored to original I thought I'd have a go at coloring the image after I worked on it a little, unfortunately as the photo was not very large in size I got the pixelated effect around the face area.

I had forgotten about this one, did it and forgot to post. Wall paper fixed and tone even. RGB to BW using mainly green channel and some red, no blue.

What a choice....and thank you Creeduk, I did wonder about how to repair the arm, cloning? Purchased a book which seems good by J Davis and B Whillmore "Photoshop for Photography" and I've had an attempt at another picture of my grandfather and uncle....still needs tweeking though :?
