A few months ago, Lovely Wife "volunteered" me to try to repair a photo for a total stranger.
There's an exchange list for people in this area. For example, if I had a working TV that I no longer wanted or needed, you can find people on this list that need one, get together with them and give them the TV.
Similarly, if you have need of a service and little or no money, or if you have money but don't have a clue who to ask about your need, you can post that on the list too.
Lovely Wife saw that someone had posted an inquiry about having an old family photo digitally repaired.
That is the one that Lovely Wife volunteered me for.
When I got the file in my email, I was bummed out. I had never tried to do this kind of repair where someone's face was involved.
I prayed about how to do it, and then started getting ideas on trying things in Photoshop Elements that I had never even thought of before.
I worked on this for about two hours, and even managed to amaze myself.
All I know about this photo, is that it was a photo of a local woman's mother. A friend of this local woman had posted the request for someone to repair the photo as a surprise for her. I never met anyone involved and have no idea who the young lady in the photo is.
It was as much a blessing for me to do this as for her to have her mother's photo repaired, I learned some neat tricks, nothing earth shaking, but the pressure and the prayer resulted in a cool transformation.
