Extreme Photo Manipulation

Extreme Photo Manipulation for FREE!

The Extreme Photo Manipulation you see below was done for free as one of my customers took advantage of a permanent offer I have on the go. If you have a photo that requires some work doing on it like Manipulation, Restoration, Colourising or even a simple Enhancement all you have to do to qualify is give me a recommendation.
All you do is go to this site Free Index, register, and perhaps give me a glowing 5 star review. Once registered (And they do not spam you) tell the world how good my service is. You will later receive a confirmation email from Free Index just asking if you are a real person and not a spambot. I will then release your chosen photo to you without a watermark and everyone is happy. How good an offer is that?
Free Index is a business promotional service, a bit like the old Yellow Pages. The public can use it to find a service they require or even post and ask for help. It’s great for both customer and service provider and it’s all free.
The Extreme Photo Manipulation you see here was quite difficult as there were no real areas to clone but I think it worked out pretty well. As you can see the customer required that three people were removed, cellotape mark removed and a general clean-up of the picture. I also enlarged the photo so it could be printed at any size which all-in-all meant the customer went away very happy.

Royton Ginnel gang, Spring Garden St.

These five youngsters including Harry Green, Jim Duxbury and Ron Allen are posing in the back passageway off Spring Garden St, Royton. The photo will go into my collection of old photos from my hometown Royton. I have a long term project of restoring all the old photos I can get my hands on and in most cases will colourise them and perhaps put them to disc later.
I have three photos of these particular cheeky kids but the other two require quite a lot of restoration before I can add any colour to them. I understand that they belong to a gentleman who does a lot of research on his family tree and who kindly gave me permission to use them. I hope he will be pleasantly surprised when I send these colour versions back to him. His name incidentally is Collin Wood and you can find his blog here should you wish to read some of his memoirs from Royton.
The photo didn’t require too much restoration and I do like to leave a certain amount of oldness to pictures that I repair. The colouring is never easy but I think this will end up as one of those iconic photos of Royton like the Ginnel Band I restored some time back.
