Close ups - after using Adobe Photoshop...

The image below is that of the top part of the figure in blue, (from frame 303 of the Zapruder film), after having been worked upon in Adobe Photoshop, and is an attempt to bring out shapes that are there. This selection has another look at the figure's right arm and also a look at other strange shapes, and at the bottom of the image - where some rectangular shapes that have little or no texture inside them, and other areas do, being suggestive of a weapon being held here. Compare also the shapes in the 'hair' of this figure, with the shapes in the 'hair' of the red figure - and could the blue figure be also wearing a mask of some kind?

Figure in Blue - top half

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.

Figure in Red - objects and shapes brought out in 'head' Figure in Blue - head, with shapes brought out

The image below is that of the figure in red, just above the waist, where there is a suspicious object, slightly lighter than the surrondings, (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.

Figure in Red - possible connecting harness between upper and lower suspicious objects

The image below is that of the figure in red, just below the waist, where it seems as if a gun can be seen, slightly lighter than the surrondings, and interupted at about the middle, (from frame 303 of the Zapruder film), after having been worked upon in Adobe Photoshop. This selection is shown in shades of dark blue and maroon.

Photoshop manipulation....
Suggested way to show subtle differences in an image, through photoshop

Choose Adobe photoshop

Open image to be worked upon

Make a duplicate of background image, and click to get rid of 'eye' symbol - so original background doesn't show. This is so the background image can be changed, and in this case so selected pixels can be taken out of it.

Use rectangular marquee to select a rectangle to work on

Select, and choose'Color Range'

Start with a darker than average part of the selected area, and use paintdropper to choose an area. Go along with fuzziness tool until there are informative bits selected. Use New layer via Cut, with ctrl shift J. Give the new layer a descriptive name. The new layer will have selection as a greyscale image, and most definitely selected bits will be darkest.

Use ctrl and click on this new layer to again choose the selection. In the top right window choose a suitably dark colour, input 'B' to get the brush tool going. Go over the selection with this. To darken more, do this again by clicking nearby and painting again; possibly do this a third time. Ctrl D will finish and get rid of the selecting bits. If the paintbrush selecting mode is set to 'Overlay' then it should mean that existing areas that are dark grey will get that much darker - meaning overall that there should be 4 levels of darkness...

Note: Edit and Stroke, choosing 'inside', when there is an active selection should help to give more colour to the edges, and if then the mouse is clicked inside that layer, and painted again, then that seems to make it more active again.

Start again, by going to the layers box and unselecting the new layer - at the eye symbol, click on the background colour so that the eye symbol is showing there, and a paint brush to the right shows that this can be worked upon.

Do this again, for a darker than average colour.

When you go to lighter than average colours, there is a slight change to the procedure...

After selecting from the background layer, and from areas where there is increasingly less pixels to choose from, when a new layer has been created - go into this area by making sure the eye is selected and the paint brush, and no other layer has this. Invert this layer, by ctrl I. Thus the most selected areas will now be white. Paint in with a suitable light colour. When finished - ctrl D.

(My latest thinking is that it's best to change all areas into darker than average colours.)

When totally finished. Put in the eyes on all layers, and possibly over a black filled area, or the background that has been darkened using a black filled area, with that layer being a bit transparent.

Print off, and save as both a photoshop file and a .jpg file.

Note: an alternative way is to - copy background image to start, then Filter, Stylise, Find Edges. Work on this new image to create a layer where dark lines are now clearly defined on that layer, with empty space around them. Merge that back with original image. Save and make new copy of original layer. Investigate with Image, Adjustments, Replace Colour. Create a new layer from picked out areas - Select, Replace colour - rubbing out where necessary on this layer, and show on top of original plus lines. Repeat for other areas.
