Depends how bad it is.

I'm using X2 the latest version, which may have different options in it.

To what you're using. If you're not using X2.

Upload a copy of it to ImageF1

The downloaded version / update (If you mean X2), WILL be a trial (unless you pay for it), and will most probably expire.

V9 is OK, BUT I dont know whats in it.

Been trying all the options,all I am getting is blobs of black or yellow,no idea what X2 is.
I inherited from old computer and appears to work and upgrade.

X2 is Paintshop Pro 12. The new version of PSP.

Upload a copy to ImageF1, so we can see how bad it is.

Then I'll see if I can do something with it in PSP.

Both PSP9 and Photoshop CS3 have a clone brush.

I have (and use) both.

When you say that you have a pic was this a file attachment jpg or a real photo via snail mail?

If an attachment then get your mate to rescan using the best quality image the hardware allows.

If you have a print then scan it yourself.

In any event post the image you have or get then post it via ImageF1 or wherever.

There are various retail outlets that will do this for you if you have it on paper.

If you have a digital pic then feel free to send it to me via Email and I will see what I can do.

Pic was via snail mail.

What do you think lads?

Absolutely doable, but it'll take a lot of patience with a clone-tool (or similar).

real quick and nasty job. I improved the hair on one of them as well.

You can scan that picture using scanner.into the computer. Using photo shop you can remove the crease and make that picture to a good one.

The crease is still there. Not as obvious though.
Well done Metla.

Old school photo perhaps?

They look like gangsters, like the movie ones. Anywho, PSP clone and zoom would pretty much cover it.

Thank you all.

Met may be a god,but looking at the quality of workmanship,I am among gods.
I will say a prayer in thanks.

Quite possible to repair in photoshop. Quite a MAJOR job though. If you have the original print then as sweep said you want a good scan with a GOOD scanner possible one that can run ICE dust etc removal to start with.

The better the scan to start with the better the end result.

Go into a Bookseller and take a look at Dec/Jan D-Photo magazine Pages 70-73. A photo restoration section there this month.

I used the digital cam noise removal option first.

Then used scratch removal to remove the line.

Then brushed over the line. And that removed it

Not the clone option.

I have been called very trying... but maybe that's different?

Me too very impressed by the efforts, if only they had trained the ABs... and a few other sports teams... Metla would not only be god (sorry God), but captain as well.

Possibly letting the cat out of the bag Cicero,

The hard way is to use a transparent clone tool and really zoom in on the area, then build up the cloning using the next few 'pixels' as reference. Then zoom out so you're looking at the pic 'normally' and touch up any areas that look a bit off.

As matter of interest Shorty,is the idea to keep "how to" secret,letting cat out engendered that question.

No, not on my part- but I imagine there are people out there who fund the purchase of a new leopard or some other pussy by the use of arcane Photoshop magic and I would hate to deprive them of a living... or the chance to look good :thumbs:
