Digital Skills Photos Manipulation and Javascripting

I took a digital image of a painting from the US Army art collection, whih US Army forces captured when they overran Germany. The orginal painting, which is nearly life size, was painted on a stiff fiber board of some kind. In many cases, when the GIs discovered the paintings, they attempted to cut the canvases out of the frames with their M1 bayonets. Considering the paintings were on a hardened surface, you can imagine what the tip of a bayonet would do! Many paintings have deep gouges running along the interior edges of the frames!

The overall painting is on the left. The close-up on the far left has a serious blemish across the face on the left. On the right, the manipulated image corrected.
