Help Needed – David Burton

by on Aug.19, 2009, under General

David has asked me if I could put this plea for help onto the BLOG in the hope that someone can help him with a bit of Photoshop editing. If you think you think you can help, please contact David via this BLOG (make a comment) to find out how he wants them arranged.

A good friend of mine from Adelaide has asked me to complete the only full family photo he has.

The problem is it is missing the 4 people included in the other scans and he has set a challenge of having them (face or more) included in either one of the ‘group’ family photos.

This is well beyond my novice photoshop skills but I am really hoping one of our talented members might have a quick play around with it to get a semi-desirable result – it doesn’t have to be perfect.

In return for anyone willing to ‘give it a go’ I would be happy to owe a favour of equivalent time (or free use of any of my photo gear)

thanks, David.

    Hi Dave,

    I can help you out if you havent had any other offers yet and also if the deadline for completion is flexible and not too tight.

    I am not sure how succesfully it will be. The main issue will be matching skin tones and light quality and direction to make it look realistic.

    Also do you have any higher res images. When looking at these full size they have very poor resolution. AND are the individual images of similar resolution as I am assuming ur friend will want to print it eventually?

    hi Warren thanks for your kind offer! Unfortunately I only have some 6×4" prints (photos weren't taken on a digital camera)

    I am catching up with him September 3rd so it would be ideal to have something then (a big ask I know)

    A big thank you to two individuals who both gave some time to demonstrate their photoshopping skills.

    One member in particular really excelled and was skilled and generous enough to re-scan the photos producing a superb high-res result that I had previously thought impossible!
