 Post subject: Old and Damaged photo
PostPosted: Sat Apr 19, 2008 9:51 pm 
Hi all,
I have a photo which is the only one in existance of my Grandfather who died shortly after this photo was taken over 50 years ago. The photo has aged with sunlight and creases etc and is very hard to make out features. I have adobe elements 5.0 and was wondering could someone point me in the direction of where to start to enhance the facial features of the man. Because it is almost all faded to the same colour I am finding it hard to grab anything to enhance the features.
To digitalise the pic I just took a photo of the photo to work with , which is probably a No No in the first place.

Any help greatly appreciated as I am trying to do this for my mother who is in her 80's and would love to see a better pic of her dad to hold in her memory.

Also if anyone could revamp the pic for me I would gladly pay any charges involved

Thanks Tom.

Any here is a cropped image of the full photo

I've done a partial restore of the photo, and sad to say, the eye detail is mostly lost. I can't post it here since I'm unable to set up a link photo site, but if you send an email I can return a copy to you.
