I didn't download it, but did you check out the individual channels? BTW, welcome to RP.

is the glared portion due to scanning or is the image really blown out over the right person's face?

i just looked at each channel, the blue contains no information and the red has the most information of the man at least, I am stumped on this one as to where to go with it, it hung for over 70 years over a coal burning stove, and most of the damage was from coal dust, the photo is blown out, and it is not due from scanning,
thnaks,
jon

Hi Jon,
This image is in pretty bad shape. The blue channel is completely dead. Area over Nancy's face is completely blown out and there is virtually no data. You can do a individual curves adjust on the R & G channels to recover as much detail as is there. I duplicated and flipped William's right eye to make a left eye (if you can really call it that). If you have another image you might be able to replicate from the likeness but I don't think your going to get much more detail out of this one.
Regards, Murray

There is no hope for it

Well I posted this in the wrong forum so I put it here also, I looked at the channels, Blue has nothing and red has the most detail on the man, I did a quick levels adjustment and got a tad of detail form th eman but nothing other than that, I think the woman is lost forever in the photo, If anyone has a good technique for this kind of damge please share it, This picture hung over a potbelly coal stove for 2 generations,
thanks,
jon

I figured it was a lost hope to do anyhting with this picture, As much technology we have today, there is still a boundrie, And I belive this is it in photos,
thanks,
jon
