Sorry for the scratches from the slide. I am still a idiot with photoshop. Maybe someone can help. This photo is more the 25yrs old.. older then me. Scanned using 1200dpi using D1230U canoscan.

Did some Levels and Curves adjustment. Pick gray point around the stone areas until the colour looks natural.

Stones are grey.. never thought of that... I was concentrating on making the children's outline more outstanding. Thnz.

The touch up I have done includes the following steps (sorry I could not remember the details):

- Adjusted the levels and colour balance manually. Reduced a lot of blue, and added some red.
- Added some contrast and saturation.
- A slight touch of USM and Despeckle filter.

As for removing the dust and scratches, that is my trade secret...:D

Just joking. I am glad to share, but it is too difficult to describe. Basically, I use a combination of:

- cut-and-paste: cover up dust and scratches using nearby pixels.
- smudging: to help to smoothen out the boundaries of the pasted sections.

The rest is just the skill and experience gained from touching up hundreds of scanned negatives from a scanner without DigitalICE feature.;)

Perhaps its just me, but I perfer the one the dots and dirts. Makes the photo look more nostalgic, more of the "human touch". :)

Good job. However, the eyes of the children look way too unnatural.

Thanks. I see what you mean about the eyes. Will try again later.
