Re: Restoring grandparents cracked wedding picture

There is a lot of colour contamination as well as cracks and yellowing, so I used an inverted duplicate layer on overlay mode to desaturate/remove colours, controlled by a black mask. Using coloured blank layers I re-tinted the whites. I replaced the background, and removed the cracks using heal and clone tools. Some smudge tool to tidy up the edges. High pass sharpening. No noise tools or blurring. The image is grainy, but I think this retains more detail, especially in the eyes and mouth.
