That's pretty good, Peter. I thought you were away visiting your new grandson!

dear BrazilianBombshell, thanks for the reposted pic, I've searched using all the tools in paint.net and I'm seeing 3 different faces of different proportions, it's like looking at clouds but in my case they won't stop moving.  I'm going to lie down now.  Here's some examples of one in particular and I hope others will see more details than I can.   If your scanner supports a file format other than jpeg, such as bmp, tiff or png, then more details will be captured for us to attempt enhancement and separation.
Can you also give more information on the age, sex and size of the mystery child ?
cheers, Ian

Thank you Peter and Ian.  To answer your questions, Ian, the child is a 4 year old boy, picture attached.  I've tried tiff but would not upload.

Thank you again for your magnificent work.  I can see a "shape" which could be Richard, a 4 yo boy.  I've tried uploading tiff but no luck.  Have done a pdf which is acceptable.

I don't think Ian knew before he told you, but Rootschat doesn't support tiff files. The pdf files aren't really suitable for restoration. It is best to use a top quality jpg file - scan at 300- 600 dpi and save with no jpg compression. You can upload a file up to 500 kb. Otherwise you could use Dropbox or similar.

Here goes with another colour version with my guess as to what the whole group would have looked like.  Turn the Hue down if it's too bright but if you are going to print it out you should try it first as it is and use photo glossy card or paper if possible.  Hope it helps, cheers, Ian
