    Hi Everyone, Been a long time lurker and finally decided to sign up and ask for help. I got married back in 2010 and have been pouring over my photos for that long. I have a major issue with a whole chunk of the photos and have not successfully been able to correct them. I have printed maybe 2-3 of my $2000 worth of professional photos, because of this... The thick uneven tendril of hair blocking my face in these photos.
    $Newell201010_101.jpg $Newell201010_096.jpg $Newell201010_104.jpg $Newell201010_111.jpg $Newell201010_126.jpg $Newell201010_127.jpg $Newell201010_129.jpg $Newell201010_131.jpg $Newell201010_133.jpg

    Is this just impossible to fix? I have no idea how it even got that bad, and why NOBODY told me that it looked like a stiff hunk of uneven crap. :( Unfortunately I'm not one to look in mirrors and check myself every 5 seconds, so I didn't notice at all until the photos :(

    I appreciate any feedback, advice if you have any. Thanks guys!

    Sorry, re-edited to make sure it was specified.
    It's the uneven chunk of hair covering my face.

    Yikes that is a heck of a challenge. Not sure if it can be done.

    Ouch! That's very unfortunate. Yes, it could be done, but you'd need someone VERY skilled in Photoshop, and I suspect to get a good job done, it would be VERY expensive (possibly as much, if not more than your photos original price).

    Edited to add: You would of course require permission from the photographer before any professional would edit these.

    Thanks for the replies, I had a feeling it was near impossible :( :( It just looks so out of place. Still annoyed not even the photographers, friends and family stepped forward and fixed it. :(

    Yeah.....that's doable. But it will take some time. If I was to give a quote at my shop on this I'd say 3-5 hours each photo @$75 an hour.

    I was thinking something along these lines. Not to be rude to the OP, but why was your hair shrouding your face anyway?

    I have no idea, I didn't even realise it was there until the photos!

    Thanks for the replies. Maybe one day I will pay to get one of them done and frame it. Don't think it is worth getting them all done. The whole day was a bit of a disaster; rain, DJ not showing up, hair, veil falling out, oil stain on my dress... etc etc BUT I did marry the perfect man, so I guess can't have both right ;)

    Thanks everyone xx
