Grandma and Grandpa
« on: August 04, 2018, 12:09:03 PM »
Hello everyone! Haven't done too much restoring/posting lately (my job has been crazy) so I thought I'd jump back in with an easy restore! Any suggestions?

Hi Karen.  I like what you have done.  It looks fine to me.  I downloaded your restore and opened it up in photoshop and copied the background layer and used multiply as the blending mode and gave that layer 27% opacity.  It darkened the photo up some.  Improvement?  Maybe.  Just and idea.  Thanks for posting your work.

Nice work so far. Looks like there's a lot of color noise in the shadow on the car on the left. Will Reduce Color Noise help smooth it out?

Really nice Karen. Phil and Bambi's tips will make it even better. Tiny little pic ... think that might be damage just to the right of the man's right (looking at screen) eyebrow?
