Re: Help! Restoring badly aged color photos

One of the easiest things to try first in Photoshop is this: Make a levels adjustment layer, go into the individual channels (Red, Green, Blue) and pull the sliders till they reach the edges of the black mountain.

The attached file has simply had the above applied to it. One would naturally continue on with all other work :-)
