    Rog,

    Could you work your magic on this one? I am astounded at the quality of your work.

    Yes Mike current jobs are free too.

    Peter although your scan is 300dpi could you send another bumped up to 600dpi and make sure that any scanning enhancements are turned off. i'm getting jpeg artefacts and mosaic blocks on the current scan.

    Rog,

    The second one was scanned at 600dpi colour. I've attached two fresh scans, Image(13) at 600dpi and Image(14) at 1200dpi, both greyscale. Hope this helps.

  5. Hi Rog

    I have been sat on these photo's for awhile, the first two taken in Italian POW Camp the prints tend to be rather grainy, do you think you can do anything with them ? If you need better scans let me know and I will see what I can do.


    If you are able to do something with these I have a couple more to try.

    And this one taken at German POW Work Camp



    Any thing you can do much appreciated, I have any other photo on the way to me which may require some work.

    Thanks

    Hi Chris, They're certainly do-able! The main problem is the honeycombe texture of the paper, but this can be overcome...

  11. Rog has done an excellent job on restoring a photo taken in an Italian POW Camp on some rather unusual paper.

    I know I've said this before but what the hell! Roger's work is truly stunning and I would urge anyone who has any old ropey pics they want spruced up to give him a go.

    He has worked on several pictures for me and I haven't been disappointed once! Perhaps his best piece of work (for me anyway) concerned a fragment of a photo I had showing my Grandad in the Worcestershire Regt around 1920. Not only did he restore the original piece but, using artistic licence, he "completed" the picture (see attached).

    I've also asked him to "colour" some famous WW2 pics and, again, the results have been excellent (see attached).

    All the best....................:)

    Do I get a discount on the next batch now Rog? :lol:

    Rog,
    600dpi scan of my Grandad's picture attached. Is this ok or shall I send it to your website? I can also send some colour images for the uniform if it will help.

    I hadn't seen the document restoration:
    Pristine Image - Recent Work
    I find that sort of astonishing. One of those 'the age we live in' & 'I'm so rubbish at Photoshop/Paintshop' moments...

    Seen a fair few family history sort of sites that could benefit from that.

    (Sorted your signature out, Rog - it ought to update when next you post. Oh, and I wonder if you should get a link to this thread on your site - though perhaps when your kind offer expires :unsure: - people not exactly backwards in their praise for your work!)

    I couldn't agree more. Until I had seen Rog's work a couple of days ago I thought I was pretty good at restoring photographs. How wrong I was.

    OK, I know this has probably been asked a hundred times before, how are you getting your images in a "Attached Tumbnails" box, no matter what I try I always seem to get the image displayed full size which is a real pain.

    Tried http://www.ww2talk.com/forum/network-information/12816-how-insert-pictures-videos-into-your-posts.html but that doesn't seem to work.

    Thanks

    When you start a reply you will see a "paperclip" icon at the top of the box. Click on that and then another box opens which gives you the option of selecting pics etc from your PC. Choose a pic/s and then click on "upload" and (hopefully) Robert's your mothers brother! :)............

    Hi Paul

    I've tried that and here's the result, I'm obviously doing something fundamentally wrong somewhere !
