Hey, good one, Pablo. ;D
Looks like Andy started something with his little lamb (page 1) plus Pat with her bunny (page 3) on this one:
The "Rootschat Restorers Menagerie" is growing. Watch this space. ;D ;D

Just a plain old B&W tidy-up from me. Great scan to work with.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / NIK SOFTWARE UPDATE
« on: Wednesday 17 January 18 22:58 GMT (UK)  »

Posting this here to catch the  eyes of as many as possible.

If you are even vaguely interested in this software please read my update to Gadget’s post in the Tips sub-board, here:;topicseen#new

The guts of it is that this once very expensive software, free for the last year or so, may not be free for much longer.

I read Gadget’s thread last year and put it on my mental to-do list to look further into it. Just got around to that and find that in late October the Nik Collection was sold by Google to DxO.

The upside is that the Nik Collection will no longer be an “orphan” and will have ongoing development by that company.

The downside is that the company is working toward releasing a new version in the middle of this year and, reading between the lines, the new version won’t be free.

So I would suggest anyone even vaguely interested should consider downloading the free version asap. (Even the free one now comes with strings attached. They are using it as a marketing opportunity - can’t blame them I guess - by requiring your email address to be put on their “list” before you get the download. You can unsubscribe.)

The old download button from Google’s site now redirects you to this DxO page:

This one bothers me a little.

Things like the arched eyebrows, deeper eye sockets and narrower nostrils of the younger man tell me that he’s not the older man. But there’s a similar look about them - largely something about the eyes, and the smile with the gaps in the front teeth - but also the similar ears, facial creases, and general bone structure.
Could they be brothers, or father and son? Related in some way, I think.


Agree. Same in all three.

Had a go at a tidy.
Is it just me or does the lady seem awkwardly perched, halfway between sitting and kneeling? I wonder what she's sitting on.

Agree with Gadget and Carol. The man has lost a lot of weight in the face, but a war and twenty years can do that.
