I have a piece of artwork that was savaged in an unfortunate incident involving a small child and a pink highlighter.

What I need is for someone to remove the pink highlighter marks and any crinkles in the paper as best you can.  It doesn't need to be perfect, it just needs to be good enough to look ok when printed on a reasonable ink jet printer at about 8" x 5".

I'd prefer if the edits were done on the high res one, but I am fine with either:

https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/fdk-share/BirdsHiRes.png [ 52mb, 5796x7620 ]
https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/fdk-share/BirdsLowRes.png [ 5mb, 1449x1905 ]

I'll pay up to 10 people 0.5 BTC for a reasonable effort and 5 BTC for the submission that I think is best.

I'll close the contest and award the winner in about 27 hours, at 2012.10.17 00:00 UTC.

(I've run a similar graphics task a while back: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=87869)

That looks good, I don't see anything obviously wrong.

i will give this a shot when i get home, but i just want to mention an idea here first...

after you get back all of the attempts, it may be possible to create an even higher quality fix by merging the best parts of each attempt into one image.

edit: if tehace's image above is not watermarked, wouldn't it be possible for people to *start* with that image and claim that they too have 'fixed' the image in the OP? (and get a free 0.5 BTC)?

I have made some corrections on the scan in addition to the basic background clear.

* Some color correction that you have lost in the scan process.

* Cleared some colour stains.

* Cleare some scanning stains.

* Image otimized for print on CMYK



Hope you like it!

PM me for the full image if you are interested, please!

I think the pink highlighter marks make the image so much more vivid!
I would say keep the highlighter marks  Grin

I am dead serious: I like the pink striped versions better then any of the cleaned ones.

Here's my go. I can provide PSD if you'd like as well.

With background changed to canvas texture:

I still see pink highlighter over top of the colored parts though - it appears that no effort was made to remove those.

I'm no good at photoshop, or I'd take a stab at it myself.  I'm just a wandering critic.  Wink

You are correct but trying to remove those will probably do more harm than good and it isn't too noticeable.

Depending on when you plan to close this, I'll take a stab at it after midterms

Edit: read the opening post better so I took a stab at it



Removed highlighter and cleaned up background (let me know if you decide to use this and I missed a spot) and cleaned up highlighter on the colored parts to the best of my ability on the lower right bird. (Have to go so don't have time to do the others, but again let me know if you like the removal and would like the others cleaned up). I also added a bit of the color back into the picture.

Hope its to your liking!
