On the sugestion ofVTphotog I'mI'm moving this post here to see if any one has
any ideas for this picture.

It is a WWII security photo from my Dad's aviation welder's certification.

I like what I've done so far. (UH-OH maybe I shouldn't have said that)
but can't get his right ear...Right. (Left side of picture)

I do NOT use PS. I have Corel Photo Paint and so far I've been able to figure
out what is done in PS and do it in Corel. It is in layers and I might put Dadback
over the old pictureto give to family members. The scanned image is1492 X
1495pixels. I don't want too change the color or feel too much but I am open to
anything that makes it better

I know this is a little different for here but I love this picture and feel a true need to
restore it. I have another but one thing at a time.

Any thoughts? He really did have two ears. No really.

I shoud add that he did have a lot of freckles and that is what you're seeing there.

Hi aladyforty,

Those are nice. Colorized!!! I never thought of that. It's nice because it still looks
old... My Corel (ver 9) can't do that. Thanks for your time.

BTW I did it... Yes i bought a Rebel XT. But it was backordered. AGAIN!!! Was
supposed to last Saturday and now next Tuesday. I got a teriffic deal so i don't mind waiting. However my 70-300 Sigma APO is comming today.

I saw you were asking about one and a 20D. I'll let ya know how I like it. Next
week. I do with my Sony F717 untill then.

I like all this cloning, it's relaxing. Buggers my eyes, but relaxing.

I've given him his right ear back. Well actually his left ear, but that's alright, isn't it ?

Just a levels adjustment and lots of cloning and Healing brush. Oh, and copied his left ear, flipped horizontal, positioned and erased small amount to account for slight angle of head.

It sure is alright and it looks great. He really did have two ears. I tried a left ear
copy and flip but i couln't get it right. however you did a great job. I know my Corel
is lacking a little and is several years out of date.

Thanx for your help.

Hey Steve you reading my mind?? LOL I saw this at work at lunch and thought if no one tries the ear copy when I get home I will throw one up and there it is, well done nice job. Only comment I would make and it is a hard one to do is leave some of the freckles behind, might need to even find new ones and add them back maybe.

I would like to see aladyforty take stevekin's version and color that I think that would be very effective. The one you did came out nice, reminds me of some of the dossier pics I have seen on the new war games.

Dale;

I have been a bit tied up for a couple days. I took a look, and tried redrawing the ear based on the lighting and the angle of the photo. I hadn't seen Alady40's coloring, so gave this a try as well. It is just a guess as to colors.

Brian,

This is great and thanks for the suggestion too bring it here. I shared the page address with my family across the country so they can see Dad get a face lift. Everyone is doing so good. I thank all who give-it-shot. I see in the color versions that the my cloning really messed up dad's left side(Right side of photo) I'll have to work on that but it is a bad area on the original. I'll have to do better.

Thanks Brian
Thanksto all
dale
