the tear across the boy's leg is the first item to attend to. clone, heal, and those type tools will work fine on that.
next would be to desaturate it.
then run something like Neat Image or other noise reduction item.
after that, i wouldnt say until those were done.

looks fairly easy though.

Had a quick go with your picture. Didn't try to "improve" it, just tried to clean it up a little, whilst trying to keep the feel of the original.

Duplicated image, then extracted torn section. Used move tool to re-align the two sections.

New layer, and applied Polaroid D&S filter set to remove light dust. Applied Cover All mask, then painted out blemishes with white brush.

Flattened Image.

New layer, Polaroid D&S, dark dust, cover all mask, paint out with white brush.


New layer, clone out major blemishes.

Levels adj layer to up contrast a little.

Neat image to remove a little of the noise.

For You

I did a good bit of clean up and instead of removing the edges I used a mask and then matted it. Made it look a bit old fashioned but I liked it. The rest was time and more time.

Merry Christmas,

Attempts before mine look excellent. Here's another one.

-Closed the crack then used scratch remover to clean it up along with other smaller cracks
-Image-based mask applied to median filter--removes white specks w/o affecting face detail.
-Clarify filter
-Highpass sharpen
-Noise reduction (PSPX built-in). 50% blend.
-Removed a few extra left-over specks/blemishes using various things--blemish remover, scratch remover, clone.
