I'm trying to fix a 1930's b&w photo that's been hand painted... the photo was stored and somehow torn in half... and is turning into a nightmare for me (and i love doing this stuff)...

this is a present for my girl's mother who is turning 75 next week...

anyone care to give it a shot?

I worked on this image a bit. DAYUM was there a bit of a tear there. LOL Ok, I've got the image mostly back together, but I definitely want to finish this later. I'll post it when it's done. Nice challenge.

I take it no one is going to post the original shot :(
10/20/2004 11:25:51 PM · #12
My thoughts exactly! :(

ok, i'll be the first to stick my neck out... with the disclaimer this is only vs. 1 - although may be my only version as well.

the original
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16266/thumb/114459.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16266/thumb/114459.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
first verson retouched
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16266/thumb/114460.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16266/thumb/114460.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

critque is very welcome. I didn't neatimage, or anything else it... i thought it should still look 'old', although i did try and fix the blemishes.

Good job. There seems to be some repeating patterns in the leaves where the scratches were. But other than that, it looks very good.
