They look perfect as if they were current photographs. Do you use photoshop or another application?

Congratulations

For coloring I use Photoshop. In it I color uniform and background. It is not possible to color perfectly face, so I look for a photo in the web, where the head is directed in the same direction as in the photo I am coloring, summing it up to the desired size and transfer color. The skin is the most difficult, and using this trick it turns out perfect. It takes from 3 to 5 hours of work for one photo, when I know what color all the elements are. Sometimes there are difficulties with ribbon bars with the awards of the World War I and I need to discuss them all in order to understand what color they should be.

Librarius13 That is an excellent job you have done. It might be a lot of hard work, but once you have finished another one, you have the satisfaction of adding it to your collection AND, knowing others interested in this field, are still enjoying the results of your dedicated labour.
Thanks again
Norman
