Finished now. My husband worrying he is not seeing me... on computer so much this week.!
This is really fun.

Thanks again for the terrific instructions

Page One of this topic for colouring

Just noticed that the webpage I used for scratch removal is off line - will see if there is another one for you  - shows you I have not used the page for a bit - memory works sometime!

Cheers

Thanks
it sure would help. I need to do lots of work to get some of my relatives looking "alive" again. The pics are so dark and the color bland.
Again thanks

I've just done my first colourising the Kizmiaz way. When I can upload Daisy I will.
I found the instructions easy to follow using elements 3. The main problems I had were getting the correct colour shade for colouring the eyes and lips. Trial and error and still not what I wanted. Is that because it's elements 3?

The other was forgetting to put the layers in the right stacking order so that I could actually see the eyes and lips.

Don't think my first effort is too bad after a lot of changing shades of colour. You'll just have to wait for it!!

What a brilliant tutorial by Kizmiaz !
I wish Software houses could also write tutorials than make sense.
I  have been wading through 260 pages of technical waffle and then I thought I'd try it the Kizmiaz way - and I have coloured my first photo! It is not brilliant but it is coloured and I am getting the hang of the tools and how to layer for the very first time.
Thank you Kizmiaz
And Rootschat - please keep this editorial at the top of your photo restoration list.
What a super site this is.

If you have later versions of Elements there is a liitle known trick worth experimenting with.

Open a new layer and name it what you will (you have to be in colour mode).
There is drop down menu called MODE
Select COLOUR BURN

Make sure it is the active layer and paint away - don't worry if the colour and tone is not right.

Complete the colourising.

You can then return to each layer in turn and on the menu bar go to
Enhance/Adjust colour/Ajust hue-saturation

By plaing with the sliders you can change colour, saturation and lightness.

Of course now I've told you I will have to shoot you/

Have fun

I am using quite an old version of Adobe Photoshop that I found in a cupboard under the stairs somewhere - but it seems to have the right functions.

But- so much to learn - I have noticed it has a colour burn 'thingy' and I'll give it a try - but don't shoot me yet - will take me at least three years to get the hang of this !

Do you like my cat with bright eyes - done by my new found layering technique !

As you can see I am no threat to you (not yet anyway).
