I'm trying to help this guy retouch his photo of his wife, she just passed away and the photo has a glare where is totally making his right eye obsolete because of his glasses. And I know there are some talented people on ATS. I really want to be able to help this guy out so he can remember the special times he had with his wife. He was very down yesterday and I really want to be able to lift his spirits up by giving him a beautiful picture of him and his wife together.



Please U2 me with your email for the picture.

I'll be home after 10PM.

Thank you for the help.

Wow..you did a great job..it would be nice if you did a tutorial on how you did the eyes..step by step..


I'm going to let you take control of this one..While photography is my job..I don't do restoration enough to great at it. Could we see your fix for this photo once you have it done
I'm curious how it will look..I tried to composite the image with a little success..but i think you are going to take the cake!

If you don't mind I'm going to keep you on 'speed dial' if I am ever in a jam with PS

Thanks for that, yes been doing a lot of these for a long time. Started out with pen/paper, then oil/canvas, digital photography, and now digital art. It's very helpful to have a good Wacom tablet and have a basic understanding of art, painting, lighting, etc.
I'll be flipping the completed image from here back to the owner, you'll have to contact them to have a look....the whole purpose of repairing the photo is very personal.
Sure pm me anytime.

you can bring it over to the avatar thread, there are some pretty good graphic artists and we may be able to do something with it for you


If you want to keep it private, you can send it to me and I'll try or you can try Agarta, he's probably the best I know with filters and editing

Then I would highly reccommend Agarta. He does excellent work and is also extremely trustworthy. If you ask him to not let it be seen by anyone else, it won't be seen by anyone else.


He's one of the most trustworthy artists I know of

You did such an amazing job I never thought it would be possible. Thank you so much. I know he will truly appreciate all that you done.

I'm just in awe and amazed at your work.

That glare was the toughest thing for me.

I truly truly appreciate it.

Thank you again

XOXOXOXO

You made it to where there was no glare at all. It looks so realistic, looks like the glare was never there. I'm so amazed by it.

Just giving an update.

The photo restoration came out great, thanks to Lonewulph.

I printed out 3 8x10s for him.

He was practically in tears when he saw the photos and wanted to pay me for it, but I kindly refused his offer and gave him a big hug.

I appreciate all the help and interests that everyone has shown to help this fellow. Thank you for letting me do something nice to lift up his spirits about his wife and to give him a great holiday gift.
