Re: In need of heavy repair

Thank you everyone for your input on the photo.I will keep trying many of the suggestions
you have given me.Yes this photo was in an album under plastic from what I recall.
Interesting that you knew this and actually reminded me. I had forgotten.
The photo was in salt water as many of my photo's were when we were hit with
a nor'easter when living bythe seashore. Thank you

Re: In need of heavy repair

For fine fiddly repair work such as fine scratches and specks where heal/clone just isn't working for me, I sometimes use the smudge tool with a small, soft brush set to mid-low strength and using darken or lighten modes (lighten for dark marks/darken for light marks) to carefully blend out this kind of damage.
