Photo Editing and Restoration

Hi everyone, have been playing in Photoshop the last few days and had watched a very good video on you tube for masking and touch up for photos. So I had to put this new knowledge to use. This is a photo I had edited before, but it was one I had scanned in for repair, so I used it again. WOW, I have to say that I have learned a lot since the last time I edited and repaired it before. What you think? In stage one was the touching up and repairing using PSCS5 newer tools I learned in my Digital Photo Class. Stage 2 I did some blending, masking (from the video I watched) and in the final stage I had lessened the saturation and lightened it up just a little bit. It all took me about 2 1/2 hours.

First time                    This time

 I have been working on the organization of my printed photo's still for Project Life and designing a few core cards for the older photo's I have been working with as my story is starting when I was born. I did get one page together but have not go the journaling complete yet. I am trying hard to take my time and do this for the final time. I have had my photo's in albums, old school magnetic photo albums, but they were falling part, so Project Life has it's own meaning to me....started way back in the day first to tell a story of my life and family.

Here is a look at my first stage of page one, the photo is not very good, but you get the idea....Until next time....Happy Scrapping!
