Help Editing A Photo


Recommended Posts

I need help getting this photo brightened up so you can actually see it. I don't know if its fixable or not, but I figured its better putting it it out there than just leaving it. Its from my camera phone (its all I had and I wanted a picture with Robby Krieger from The Doors.) Here's the photo. Thanks for anybody who can do it.

The photo is pretty much shot. It is way to dark to really truly get any detail out of it much less facial features which is what I am sure you really want if I am not mistaken. I did try to do something with it and I had no luck and I was using Photoshop CS3, all I basically got from it is a washed out image that was just that.. washed out and no details. I am sorry sir.

Its okay. Thanks for trying though. I Appreciate it. I didn't expect it to work but I didn't see a reason to not try. Thanks again.

One part of the problem is that as far as I can see the main lighting source in the pic is unfortunately behind the people... In a dark setting like that, that means that in most of the darker spots there just aren't any details in there. So there's not really anything there to work with.

 

I grabbed the pic and goofed around briefly with cranking the brightness and saturation and downing the contrast, gray-scaled it, a few of the other standard things, nothing looked immediately promising...

 

But yeah, without some hardcore editing software you're not gonna get more than a really faded abstract-painting version of what the original pic was... Warhol's "Two People, Green" :wacko:

 

You could try asking Disney or the CIA, but other than that, yer outta luck. Sorry.

 

(Ya ever notice it's always the ones that would have been really cool if they'd come out? The last time this happened to me, it was a pic of a pretty girl in a gothic dress wandering out on the rocks by the ocean at sunset... :down: )
