    New! Gray-scale to Color- Depression era farmer

    Found this old guy at the Library of Congress photo collection from back in the day. I just liked his look for a color conversion. All done with pen tool selections, hue and saturation adjustment layers with colorizing. Source: Library of Congress

    A Memorial I made for a deceased Pee Wee football player

    I recently made this for a local YMCA to give to the parents of a young man that passed away. I don't know the circumstances of it but I was asked to create this for a presentation to his parents. This is almost all Photoshop work with the exception of the back and the base. I made this by first...

    Super moon composite

    Members that know me know I don't usually do these. But since I had this nice moon photo I made I thought I would embellish it a bit as a composite. I made the moon photo and paid a dollar for the image license for the lady.

    Illustrator Illustrator 2014 won't start

    I had not used AI for a few days and I went to open it from the shortcut on my desktop. It reports "could not complete the requested operation". I tried it from the program directory, same thing. So, I get on a chat with Adobe tech support, he failed to solve it and I had to go to do something...

    Color from Greyscale-My Version of Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother (1936)

    Here is my colorized version of Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother photo from 1936 during the Great Depression. I tried to maintain the mood of the image, as that was a very dark time in our Nation's history. Many of you young people on here have no idea how bad this was. I was born after it...

    Sunday project : Colorization from vintage greyscale

    Felt like doing a colorization today. Had this photo that I had downloaded from the Library of Congress's archive of this lady socialite from 1912. It was originally 1400 dpi, I brought it down to 300 to make it easier to work with. This was done in CMYK, using a curves adjustment for the skin...

    Guys and Girls, Creative Cloud updates are huge. I downloaded the update this morning for PS along with Illustrator, Bridge and Muse. If you have CC, when you open the Apps to update it has the link to describe what is new. One of the things I particularly like is that they added the Typekit...

It will be sold to parents and school supporters as a decal or possibly applied to acrylic, cut out with the laser for keytags. I made the anchor. rope and text...

    This photo was carried in a wallet and severely damaged. I actually worked with split frequency to help in the process of removing all of the damage. Turned out pretty well I think. Repair:

    This photo was posted here once before. I had it in my archive. However, the procedure for repairing something like this has totally left the old man. So, please refresh my memory .

    Another Colorization

    This native American chief was originally photographed by Edward Curtis and copyrighted by him in 1900. It is now in public domain and is from the Library of Congress. I try to think of colors that would be available in the native people's environment and they would use to decorate their...

    Retouch attempt

    I saw the thread about split frequency technique used for retouching. I found this photo and thought it would be a good candidate to try this technique. I wanted to keep the subject looking as natural as possible, improving it yet not making her look like some of the typical retouches I see...
