Trying another drawing from my course. From an old photo of my wife. I have encountered problems with scanning drawings. I have used several tools but mostly it's a hit or miss situation. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the kind comments. I noticed you have other talents in wood working. I just finished a doll house for my 4 year old great granddaughter. Never did one before and it was quite a learning process but all was rewarded when she said "I love it. I love it."

Your wife is beautiful and the drawing does her justice.

Your granddaughter is lovely, too. Looks like the dollhouse made her happy.

You, sir, are a lucky man!

beautiful drawing Marty :clap: :clap: :clap:
try just taking a photo under even lighting instead of scanning to see if you get a better result. I find that taking a photo then converting to grayscale, then back to colour again sorts the colour problem out. From there I just need some minimal tweaking on the contrast to get the photo looking just like the original
