Need help with scotch tape

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows how to retouch a photo that has scotch tape on it? The tape has turned yellow and just happens to be covering the faces of the people. The photo is the only one we have with my great uncle in it. Any help you can give I would be very thankfully for.

Thanks,
Sharon Lee

Sharon,

Check the channels. Often tape problems can be aleviated by using one of the channels that has the least damage.

Can you post the image---in RGB of course.

scotch tape

Hi Ken,
I'm not sure what you mean by checking the channels.

I tried to upload the file but it says file too large.

Scotch Tape

I have tried to reduce it following Flora's tips, but still can't do it. Can I send it to you, and you can put it on here?
