I used a separate layer first to adjust the levels, then another for saturation and another for contrast. Then I merged the layers, reduced noise and smart sharpened. Usually I like to resize first but honestly I forgot...so I added the frame, signature and then resized. Literally took me hours to figure out how to do everything. So glad you liked it.
As far as your visitor...I will look through my books to see if I can find something that fits your description. Will let you know.
Have a great day, Lori
