I’ve restored hundreds of damaged photographs in my career — photo restoration and manipulation has got to be one of my favorite tasks. This particular photo restoration is for family, making it even more enjoyable.
The original image was almost 60 years old, and had been scanned with a home flatbed scanner. I received the photo via email as a jpeg with mid-range compression levels.
After restoring the image by removing all tears, watermarks and aging marks, I prepared several alternate color options to allow for flexibility in use.
