Re: How to restore this photo with Stamp on it

This is about as good as I could get it in the time I had available, took me about 40 mins.

Duplicated image, set blend mode to lighten, then moved it upwards by a couple of pixels, this reduced a lot of the lines.

Flattened image.

Cloned out the larger stamps.

Bit crude, and there's lots I don't like about it, but if you had a bit more time than I had, I'm sure you could do a better job.

Chong Loong,

HA,ha, ha,... LOL, Way to go

I have heard that Tea was excellent for all kinds of ILLS but, this is the first time I have heard of it being used for plastic removal... Glad it worked out for you...

By The Way.. your restoration is the best looking one!

Congratulations!

Simplest and the best solution. Great result.

Now you know why we English always swear by the power of Tea.

Re: How to restore this photo with Stamp on it

I am going to have to remember this...if you have permission to give it a try, cleaning the original photo may be a great start (or re-start). I bet there are a lot of good lessons-learned about what NOT to do with a photo to clean it.
