It's Photoshop time, this time with probably the hardest challenge I've a come up with to date!

My wife's grandmother had a photo taken that did not survive the years; it was literally torn in half, half is missing, and there are no negs.

What can you do to restore the image? Mirroring the remaining half is sort of a given, but people's faces aren't exactly symmetrical+her nose is completely gone.

Give it a try, and I promise to "judge" the fine work from previous months really soon.

Here's my try...

My Best,

Gare

Is anyone else having problems viewing the picture Gary has posted here?

Sorry bud, if it is there, I am just not seeing the picture. I'm using FireFox, but have never had this problem before. [confused]

Yeah... me too!!! Daaaag nabbit! [doh]

I can see them when i PREVIEW the message, but not when it's posted. hmmm... \:] So i uploaded the files to my server and hardcoded them into the message. :perfect:

The last couple board updates i think have messed up some things. I'm seriously thinking of starting over with a new fresh board install; very few Mods, fresh code, etc...

FYI a new facelift wouldn't effect any files, post, or board data... it's just cosmetic. ;)

This forum is seriously muxed up. None of the other images on various threads show. No avatars either, although I don't miss 'em.

I can see the images I posted here, but all text is centered (not flush left) on all threads.

I'm using Exploder 6.

K guys found the avatar problem and the center alignment problem also and fixed both of those. But the attachment problem is still ongoing. I'm looking everywhere for the cause but no luck as yet.

Ok well... it ain't too pretty anymore but... it appears to ALL be working again! And that makes ME very happy! 8} :D

I'll get to customizing the theme asap. But for now, i'm taking a break. :\
There may still be a few newly posted images that may need to be re-Uploaded. But other than that, all seems in place again.

Good job Keeper!

Well Gare here it is...
One keeps the grain and feel of the old picture and the other tries to smooth it out some. Hope you like them.

Nice one!

lasa--verry well done! :perfect:

I see you kept the sepiatone. I got rid of it and used burgundytone because my image is for printing, and hey, why not brighten up Grandmas Susie in the process of restoration? And I found the background just too hard a job to restore.

Mark, thanks for reviving the forum :} I don't mind the "bare bones look", but as you mentioned, enhancements are on the way.

My Best,

Gare
