Photo Restoration & Repair

Post#1 by Pat625 » 16 Oct 2016, 11:21


Found a faded out picture of my father in law which I later found was his high school yearbook picture. He died several years ago at the age of 80. My husband asked if I could restore it. I did this several years ago when I was first learning GIMP and doing it on my own looking for instructions and tutorials. There are still improvements to be made and if I have time may do it again. Need to denoise and despeckle but it was a start. Here is my attempt:

Nice Job! It looks more recent even though still has the classic feel.
A trick i learned from a graphic designer is when you cut or paste, feather your selection by a certain amount of pixels and you'll get smoother outlines.

Wow! Nice job!

My feeling is that it might be a bit too dark because the stripes on his suit are not as visible. I'm sure that it is a matter of taste and when you despeckle it, it will look great.

:D

Thanks, Meemaw. I know a lot of things now that I didn't know when I first started fixing our old photos and that is because of GimpChat. Belonging to a forum in my case was the best way to learn new things and correct things I am doing wrong. So many people to help you along. I love it. I'm sure that Gimp Learn is the same way.

Yes, I do too!

I really enjoy Gimp Chat too... and I'm sure Gimp Learn will be the same. :golden_wilber:

I am hoping the new members of GL learn along the way to lead herds of noobs from all corners of the internet into GIMP. Already Pat625 taught me how to have splashes going which is great.

I only recently learned about Splashes when a new member, Muhammed, submitted a splash he did. Rod commented as to how to make splashes. Wallace helped when I had a problem. Its a team effort. I like that. I hope that by bringing the information here will help keep it going.
