Please Retouch Photo In Dropbox
« on: Thursday 24 October 13 22:28 BST (UK) »
Please retouch 1200 DPI Photo in Dropbox at this link:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ydnx42k4dmodr4v/TkJTtcxH3l

There are fold lines and other marks that I would like to have corrected in this photo of the house staff, which includes a deceased relative.

Many thanks for any assistance on this photo.

Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean what application? I guess that would be up to you. I use PhotoShop Elements, but I am not expert at it, which is why I have asked for help here.

Thanks very much,
RB

Sorry, just re-read the question. Looking to have the fold lines removed and other marks eliminated to best extent possible.

Thanks again,
RB

Thank you very much. You have made a tremendous improvement already. Is it possible to even out the brightness along the center of the picture where the folds were?

I'm sorry I put up such a big file on Dropbox. I should probably have scanned it at a lower resolution.

A little bit more fixing and some toning added. I had to recreate some of the windows and body parts.

Hopefully someone else may have more suggestions?
