Re: Damaged film from Africa

i did this yesterday, late. and frankly, i forgot to write down the steps in the layers. tired. what i do recall is a brightness/contrast layer, a tiny bit of clarify, a little sharpening, a jpg artifact removal, some airbrushing and a little blending of some layers.

if all your images are similar to this, you've got some work ahead of you.

Re: Damaged film from Africa

I would try to dodge and burn some details in the photo. I can see a little more clarity as i worked with it, color I think is the secret .
