Textured

Well the one on the right has a lot of paper texture in it which needs to be removed. Some here would use the FFT filter which I do not have. I used several levels adjustment layers to apply varying amount of levels throughout the photo. I then used Neat image to remove some of the texture. Finally there is a water spot or something around the dogs head that I cloned out.

Hello Nebgranny

Sounds like some exciting times reconnecting with long lost family...scary as well I'm sure... good luck to you.

As Phil stated there is a lot of texture in the paper as well as damage. I tried to keep some of the detail in the faces. If you have other photos you may refine the features a little.

Hi Nebgranny

I gave the second one a try... Nothing fancy,... I don't know fancy...lol, just a lot of cloning mostly with the blendmode set to darken.
