History Meets Photoshop

Before and after of my aunt's Wedding in 1957. I decided to only do a partial color. Did a lot of clean up work as well, the originals had not been stored well and were folded scratched and moldy. I did not save the original scans unfortunately.

    That's probably smart not to try and color the whole scene. That would be a LOT of work with all the detail in the background.

    Thanks Carl. I also chose to try to give the image that kinda hand colored look that was popular during that time. BTW, my aunt and cousins absolutely loved them.

    Nice job Rich. How'd you get the skin color so perfect? Was it trial and error or did you color-sample from a color photograph?

    I started with a sample, and tweaked it to eye
