This one is perhaps the most difficult one so far. It starts out as a tiny 2 ½ x 3 ¼ print, so there’s not a lot to work with getting started…

Still quite a bit of work to do yet on this one.

 

This one took a LOT of work. Not helped by a very inopportune Photoshop crash 🙁

Another Olde Photo

Before and After of Olde Photo

A lot of work with Adobe Photoshop CS4 to get the left version to the right version – all from an original that is 3 ¼ x 2 ½ inches.

 

Here are a couple of before and after shots of some olde photos I’ve fixed up for a friend.

After scanning the photos it was lots of time with the tools available in Photoshop to Clone, Heal and Patch the damage. The second photo had been torn nearly through and then “fixed” with sellotape at some stage in the long ago past – what a mess!!! It kind of reminded me of watching the curators work on the Dead Sea Scrolls some years ago when we saw them at the Field Museum in Chicago – gently scraping away the decades olde tape that had been put on them.
