Hi
I am restoring an old photo for a friend, using Photoshop 3.
I have done quite a bit of this before but this one is a real challenge, see the link below, the guy on the far left has real problems over his face area, i was hoping for some hints as to how best to clean this up, using the spot healing brush and clone stamp just make the face look fake.

Thanks for any help that can be offered

hi,
is that the orginal scan? is his face original or after you had done some stuff already?

any way... not sure if this is the best route, I a novice need more experience but... .. first i had to brighten up the image alittle maybe because my monitor tends to be a little on the dark side...

continuing...selecting areas, i used the dodge tool.. very low exposure setting , going back and forth on shadows and hilights, did a little bit at a time... to gradually address allthose black splotches.. and then use the burn tool to come back put back in the outline of the nose and mouse and jaw ... where it sort of match the other faces texture and tonal, i had to be carefull not to brighten to much on the right side of the face..

that how i went about it....

hi,
oh you elements 3.0 that wasn't clear to me before....

from reading you should have it...

1. burn tool looks like a pinched fingers
2. dodge tool looks like a map pin
3. and there a sponge tool , looks like a sponge, as part of the group...
now that maybe the default display in the pallet click on it and see if you see the other two ...

generally there located under the paint bucket but don't quote me on that... it is for elements 4 and 5 but not sure on 3.0

A really easy to follow photo retouching tutorial which I will recommend to my students. I also think the retouch was really subtle and a believable result.
