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

Yes looks so much better. If you have time to really do her up later ,we would be very appreciated.

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
