- Edit my images ?
- Yes (recommended)
This is a small project I just started, however it is proving troublesome. I am by no means a pro, I'm self taught through the many online tutorials and by trying things out myself in various software titles. I mainly use Jasc Paintshop Pro 9 (old but it is a excellent editor I been familiar with for many years) I do also have Corel Paintsho Pro X5 and some other lesser products.
Although I am looking to restore the whole photo the main section I would like to concentrate on is the top half between the second and third column. There are some scuff marks emanating from the organ tubes right the way across the wall and peoples faces to around the second column. I need to keep as much detail as possible with regard to the faces. It is a high DPI (600) as I needed to enlarge that particular section and scanning at a moderately higher resolution as far as I know is the only way to achieve this.
One other issue I have been unable to resolve is the reflected scanner light on certain sections of the image. I have tried numerous ways to resolve this from rotating the image in the scanner and blending the two scans to manually cloning from other parts of the image to correct the lighting. I am competent at cloning (I believe Adobe Photoshoppers call this healing) but there are times where no apparent source for the cloning can be found.
If anyone could supply any tips or indeed provide any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
