A particularly damaged photograph that is used as a prime example of my digital restoration skills in software such as Adobe Photoshop.
The digitally restored photograph, which involved careful use of tools such as ‘Healing Brush’ and ‘Clone Stamp’ and the surrounding undamaged areas to remove the creases and tears.
The subject for this digital retouching focused on fixing issues with the content within the photograph instead of damage done to the photograph itself.
The digitally retouched photograph, which focused on fixing the large tear in the top left corner of the cushion and removing the background. The biggest difficulty was ensuring the rows of fabric dots were remained consistent.
This digital retouching involved changing the colour of this cushion.
The colour swatch that the cushion had to be colour matched to.
To achieve the colour change, the cushion was selected and desaturated using an adjustment layer in order to create a blank canvas to work from. Then, a layer derived from the colour swatch was made and blended using the 'Colour' blending option.
