Title: Edwards Family 1948
Post by: sylvia on Monday 20 July 20 10:50 BST (UK)
This photo came into my email a few days ago, it is of my Mom and Dad and my brother and sisters. Taken in Wednesfield in 1948 judging by the my baby sister Kathleen's age. I think it was originally a black and white photo which someone  put some color into. Some color seems to have run into my mothers neck from her dress and her leg and also my leg, the little girl to the far right of the photo. Also My brother trouser legs are two different colors. I have never had a photo of us all together before as children so I am really over the moon with this one. I was wondering if it was possible to do a black and white version of the photo but I am sure its going to be to hard. Also I don't mind what color's you use for the photo .Oh the cat was ginger  Thank you , I await with bated breath.

I've tinkled with the faulty colours and turned down HUE to lessen the overall colour, cheers, Ian

Love the photo's, Thank you. I have sent them to my desktop but for some reason the actual photo isn't there when I try opening it up . I have tried several times but all I get is an empty folder.
Any suggestion's folks. Thanks . Sylvia C

               Usually you save to a folder but if you are transferring the pic to the desktop then put your cursor on the selected picture and press the left mouse button and keep it pressed. Drag the cursor over to the desktop and then release. You will notice in doing so that the cursor changes .This
should copy that selection to the desktop.  To view the picture in large format just click on it.

Your original photo looks like it has been coloured with an automatic colouring app. Unfortunately some colours do bleed and the faces are usually very 'sunburnt' when these are used. i have toned down the black and white version a little
