Vasanth, Welcome to RetouchPRO

I do not understand why you started a new thread? Are we not fast enough for you?

What retouching software do you have? This will help focus the tips to the programs you have available to work with.

Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?
No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo.

That said, here is the simple approach to darken her Left shoulder..

A moderator might combine your threads!

Easy Fix.

Select the right hand. I used the lasso. Take the arm selection in to it's own layer.

Set the layer blend to Multiply. If it isn't dark enough duplicate multiply layer and slide down the opacity to your desired tone.

Re: Help with faded left hand

If you mean the subject's right hand what you can do is photograph someone holding a book from the same camera angle and use that hand to restore the blacked out right hand of the subject.
