playing the piano
« on: December 04, 2018, 02:58:24 PM »
today I started with a new picture of a lady behind the piano. The restoration wasn't too difficult with lots of good areas to clone from. I've tried to remove the raster with a fft plugin, but 'dust & scratches' had a better result. Only thing I'm not sure about is the color.. Would love some feedback!!

You might try doing another levels check.  When I did, I pulled out a little more color.

Love your repairs Wolly!
You need to do a Levels and Curves and your colors will be fine then.
After you do that you will find the walls need a bit of a cleanup around the edge of the photo.

Edit:  Candy gave the same answer just before I did.  :)

good day to all..

I've finished the lady on the piano.. Removed a repeat, cleared the background some more and did another levels layer. I think she looks very nice  :)
