1. I created an adjustment layer to see what I was working on to brighten the shadows and highlight the bits that needed repair

2. I used the clone and the heal tools to remove a majority of the blemishes and scratches.

3. With the whiteness that had appeared from scan (the texture of the photo that had caught the scanning light) I dodged down the highlights and or made selections around the whiter more textured areas and tweaked the level to reduce the white

4. I was very careful to leave the photo as was and just restore it, my ethos is that the photo should be restored, perhaps adjust the levels etc, dodge and burn but that’s as far as it should go. Fair enough if you have to make up a leg or an arm but I don’t want to add textures or airbrush over things.

5. After that a few level tweaks and dodge and burn here and there around the cowboys scarf, special attention to the foreground so that it did not look cloned or healed or smudged or invented.
