Help need to improve photo of Albert Henry Rowles
« on: Saturday 27 March 21 09:30 GMT (UK) »
Albert Henry Rowles was born on Monday, 15th November 1897 at The High Street, Finstock, Oxfordshire the son of John and Elizabeth Rowles.

This copy was taken from a framed photo through glass and at a slight angle to avoid clare.
He seems to fade into the background.

My try. I'm not completely happy with the way it turned out but unfortunately, I can't spend more time on it.

PS. As far as I know, Rootschat still has a maximum file size limit of 500 KB for photos. Adding a wee bit of color to the photo, frame and background increased the file size almost tenfold. So I've reduced the image size and quality in order to post this version here. I'm not sure whether it makes much difference but you can download this photo with the original image size and quality via my 'Google 'Drive' at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VxaodBI3gX7ux8ge-9L7ksL_JwZEyX8u/view?usp=sharing.

I'm working on my laptop at the moment, so limited.

I've done a little tidying and adjusted the perspective and contrast,  etc. but have left the rough-ish texture as is. Also, I've  resized  so that I can see all of the image without using the slider,  and have  re framed.

Sorry for the delay in replying but I have Just got in and delighted to be home after a long shift.

The restorations you guys have done are amazing.
I can even see a pattern on his tie which was not there before.
I don't know how some of this magic is done but a very big thank you to you all.
God Bless.
