Amazing snapshot of 1917 team
Including eight players involved in the 1919 scandal.
Fixed and colored by Chris Whitehouse at ManCave.
"In the original image, what I see is people who should look normal, but look like dusty old ghosts," he said . ".
"I was particularly angry to see that their color uniforms were recorded in only gray shades.
Whitehouse, who visited black and white photos through the Library of Congress, said the Library of Congress had a "huge treasure" of baseball photos ".
He sorted out the pictures with Photoshop and Wacom tablets and pens to bring them back to life.
He said, but basically, it includes the restored gray-scale base image, on which I drew dozens of layers of color to make the shades of light and shade appear.
He added: "These colors are in turn controlled by different types of filters that affect their appearance in different ways.
I should also mention research on the correct color.
I can't claim to be always right, but I do the best I can.
"An ordinary person may encounter the patience problems needed to do the job.
But it is normal that I have never been accused.
