BTW, I have a similar hat, a little later example, in select quality. I like to think of these as upbrim soft hats rather than homburgs, but I'm not sure there is much of a difference.

Beautiful hat. That’s the kind of hat that makes me want to get another Homburg even though I’ve passed on every one I’ve ever owned.

These pics are fabulous!!!
How did you do?
Thanks Matt! I started out looking for some old time & Sepia tone software or app. Never found anything too authentic looking so far but along the way I found a couple of artistic programs that I kind of like that I kept. I'm learning that the pic you start with has a lot to do with how the results look.

I wish I could find a studio or some props to use.
