Restoring pet photographs is just as important as restoring photos of your family. Well they are family, aren’t they? Here I am showing the progress through restoring photo a dog.

The photo is heavily damaged but with some careful thought, it can be restored.

The dog’s toe pad has been replaced with the large black foot pad but scaled down and rotated and squashed. Above that, some shadow has been cloned into the white space as in picture 1

You can see the muzzle has been cleaned up a bit here, using the patch tool and clone tools.

I have also copied the yellow dog toy from the left and pasted it to the right. I pasted again and flipped the yellow ball and with the patch and clone rebuilt the right-hand side of the toy. I made sure there was some flash shadow around the ball in a slightly red tinted shadow to match the other side.

Finished cleaning up the muzzle and shadow underneath with clone tools and patch.

Here I have used the left side of the leg and clone upward towards the ball. I flipped this leg edge and used it for the right side.

Fortunately, the customer had another photo of the dog lying down and I able to distort and warp the rear leg to replace much of the missing leg.

From the second photo, I was able to use some belly fur and shade it with the dodge and burn tools. I added some flash-shadows behind the newly added leg parts.

I reduced the red tint to the back and grey sofa and zoomed out for the finished product.

Hopefully, you will look after your photos and not need to get your pet photos restored.
