Hi Arcadhia, as Legacy says, not sure what you want here. Your image was quite faded, and quite small, I did a quick improvement on it by Duplicating it, and setting the blend mode to multiply. Then duplicated this layer to get better image density. Then I applied a levels adjustment layer and upped the contrast a little. Lastly I cloned out any blemishes and ran it through Neat Image to reduce noise.
As I said, a larger image would allow a better assessment of any improvements that could be made. Hope this helps.
My Two Cents
Hi Arcadhia – I did almost the same thing as Gary. I wanted to give it a try because it looked challenging. Here are the steps that I used:
1. Duplicated the background
2. Add a Level – Set blending mode to Multiply
3. Duplicated the level
4. Duplicated the level again but this time change the Opacity to 35%
5. Add another level (leave the blending mode set to Normal) – This level I used to adjust each color channel separately for improvement.
6. Add a Brightness/Contrast layer and adjust the contrast down -10
7. I cleaned the background up with the eraser
8. I used the Healing Brush to remove the spots on the face
9. I also removed the hair (at least I think it was hair) along the left check
Final Step - I ran it through Neat Image to reduce the noise as well as Gary.
I hope that helps!
