Restoration of Two Photos
Please help. I have two photos that I need to restore. I'm using Photoshop 4. Both can be view here http://y42.photos.yahoo.com/personalizedbookmarks
As you can see the family picture has too much red (magenta?) while the mother photo have many marks and is too dark. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jeff

For the "Family" picture you can probably get good results simply by using Photoshop's "Variations" feature (I'm not sure this is available in version 4, but if it isn't check out the "Intellihance Pro" plugin at www.extensis.com (free 30 day demo)
This is a simplistic solution, since I'm guessing you're relatively new at this.
As for the "Mother" picture, that's a classic restoration job. Most of the cracks, etc., can be attacked with the stamp tool, or by copying other sections and pasting them over the flaws, but a better solution would be to read the various challenge responses and try some of their techniques. You'll also want to fix the muddy contrast by using the "curves" or "levels" command (avoid "brighten/contrast")
Plus, check back here regularly, I'm sure someone will post a more detailed response
Feel free to post with additional questions after you've done some experimenting.
(P.S.: I know it isn't cheap, but you might really want to consider upgrading to Photoshop 6, lots of changes since 4. If you're considering buying the Intellihance Pro after the demo period runs out, you might consider putting that money towards PS6 instead)

Another approach you should try is working with channels in CMYK mode. It can produce some amazing fixes.

for the newbie: PSP 7 has a scratch remover tool that works very well. You can get a trial vs. for free. Go to Jasc.com the co. that makes it. It is much more user friendly than the expensive one.
