Feedback on restoration attempt please
Mar 18, 2012

Hi Folks,

I've been trying to learn Photoshop in preparation of working on some of our old family photos. I worked on this one and am relatively happy with most of it, but I had a very hard time with the skin. It seems to be very sandy, blotchy and I can't figure out how to correct it. It either comes out looking plastic or still spotty.

I tried blended layers, copying the original in for some texture and this is the best I could come up with.

Any suggestions on the skin or any other parts of the photo would be greatly appreciated.

I been reading the forum for quite a while and now that I'm starting to work on these, I hope to be a more active participant.

Thank you,
