African American Photo Restoration - Music

I found this photo on Flickr and restored it.  I created the frame in my Pazzles Pro 2010 software.  You can probably see it better if you click on the photo.

This one was pretty easy to clean up too, but I couldn't get the right color combination on the bottom left side.

She is just so cute to me!  :-)

Vintage African American Band Photo Restoration

I found this vintage African American Band photo on Flickr so I could restore it.  I didn't do much to it except take the green color off.  I made some other minor edits, but nothing big.  I tried to add more to the man's face on the left, but it was too small.  When I enlarged the photo it was too grainy, so I left it alone. Click on the image for a better view.

I created the frame in my Pazzles Inspiration software.  The images are in the Pazzles Inspiration library.

I can see this on an ATC or a canvas.


Vintage African American and Native American Photo Restoration

Here's a couple of photos I found on Pinterest to try to restore using Photoshop CS4.  The first photo I added a frame that I created in Pazzles Pro 2010.  I took out a lot of the background.

I didn't have to do too much cleanup on this photo, but while I was working on it, I kept wanting to colorize her hair and eyes.  Somehow I envision that her hair was jet black and her eyes were either amber or light brown.


Opening ZIP Files

Hey everyone

Here is a list of places to download free zip software.  I DO NOT ENDORSE ANY OF THEM.  I'm only listing the links for you to make a decision on which zip software download you may want to try. I use WinZip, but it's not free.


List of 5 free zip software



WikiHow - FYI  - I didn't read the whole article, but it looks like you can download zip files and open them without having zip software.  The only downside is if you want to zip files.

Windows 7:

After you download your zip file, right click on the file itself
Select "Open With"
Select "Windows Explorer"

Your files will open right up.  I don't know when Windows added this feature, but I like it. Unfortunately, I must have the ability to zip files too. 

Ok, well, I hope these help.  NOTE:  Before downloading any file, make sure you have updated anti-virus software.
