Close ups - after using Adobe Photoshop...

The image below is that of the head and upper chest of the figure in red, (from frame 303 of the Zapruder film), and the only thing that has been done is to crop the image to this size. (This is taken from 35mm slides that were taken from the original 8mm film, and have been scanned to a very high resolution at NARA). Note: how unnatural this person's face seems to be, and I hope to bring out a number of strange shapes in due course. If this were really a person's face, then they would have a small, dark nose, and large, dark mouth, with noticeably different orange coloured skin around the mouth, and neck. And also, a strange division in her hair style as if there is a vertical line dividing part of 'her' hair, with curly hair as if taken by the wind to that person's left - but any wind that day seems to have been in the opposite direction. The image to the right is where I have run the original image through some software called Focus Magic in order to try and improve the clarity just a little...

The image below is that of the head and upper chest of the figure in red, (from frame 298 of the Zapruder film), and the only thing that has been done is to crop the image to this size. (This is taken from 35mm slides that were taken from the original 8mm film, and have been scanned to a very high resolution at NARA). Note: what looks like a twig of a tree coming out of 'her' head. This could easily be thought of a 'natural' artefact/aberration in the image - except that it seems to very definitely be there, and that there seems to be a mechanical connector keeping it in place. The other image is where filter and Accented Edges has been used.

The images below are from frame 303, and are that of the head and upper chest, again, and the image to the right is where I have used the Adobe Photoshop filter - Trace Contours. It shows a roughly square shape in the person's hair, and which also shows up when the colours are made more saturated - see other images below...

The image to the left and below is that of the head of the figure in red, (from frame 303 of the Zapruder film), after having been worked upon in Adobe Photoshop. I originally thought that this figure is wearing a mask of some kind - and I still do! In photoshop I have taken very subtle changes in colour, (which are also very blurred), and separated them, and coloured them in vibrant colours.

There is still a lot that could be done, (especially by somebody with skills in photoshop), but it should be possible to say at this stage that a normal person's head should not be showing shapes that suggest mechanical devices in their hair/face...(This image is repeated in the Close Up pages, where there are also more details on how it was created.)

Figure in Red, head - showing odd shapes

The image below, and to the left, is that of the figure in red, (from frame 303) - that person's head, after having been worked upon in Adobe Photoshop, as follows: Using levels, the existing range of values is extended as much as possible, and the saturation levels are increased by 50%. Accentuated edges are put in using white. Image, Adjust, Replace colours is used with Saturation at 100, various levels of brightness, and changes to hue - in order to bring out shapes that can be seen. And strange shapes can indeed be seen in the figure's 'hair', and to the right at lower levels. It's not obvious what these can be, but these are not things that would be seen normally in a woman's face and hair, and I believe are indicative of gadgets attached to a mask of some sort - perhaps to help accurately fire a weapon, or as part of a 'walkie-talkie' communication device. The image below, and to the right, is of the figure in blue's head, and has been worked upon in a similar way to that described above. There are shapes that are brought out in that person's 'hair' - (or this figure also wearing a mask?) - seem to be similar to the other figure.

The image below is that of the figure in red, just above the waist, where there is a suspicious object, slightly lighter than the surroundings, (from frame 303 of the Zapruder film), after having been worked upon in Adobe Photoshop. The colours have been made more vibrant, and usually lighter to try to bring out various odd objects/shapes that seem to be there.

Figure in Red - suspicious objects at chest level

The image below is that of the figure in red, at about waist level, where it seems as if there is a connection between the suspicious objects above and below where two apparent hands are resting. Using Image, Adjust, Replace Colour, and just one selection with moderate fuzziness, then the lighter green colour can be seen - indicating that these areas of the suspicious objects and an apparent physical 'frame' between them - have a similar colour. Note also a cylindrical object going downwards. This is from frame 303 of the Zapruder film, after having been worked upon in Adobe Photoshop.
