Unhappy Great grandmother very damaged photo Pls help

Hi Guys,

I was passed on this photo of this Great grandmother to repair, I am afraid the photo is very damaged, it has been in a frame for years, it is actually a copy of a copy, the original has been lost. I am trying to repair what I can, but would be most grateful if I could have the help and knowledge of how to repair this treasured damaged photo from you guys.

The photo is of my son paternal great grandmother, the lady was somewhat a character in life. It would be lovely to see her photo in great shape and to preserve my son's family history.

Many thanks in advance.


regards

Hi Helen, I've downloaded the photo and am attempting a restore on it. So far it's going great, I'll try to keep you updated as I go along.

Hi Breitling,

Thank you very much for your interest and helping to restore the photo, much appreciated, I am going around the tutorials on this forums to see what tips I can pick up. I've looked at the great grandmother's photo too much to see what I can do, but now my brain is all pickled lol.

Thanks very much

Hi Breitling,

Thank you so so much for your help in restoring this family photo, the photo is very beautiful, you've done a great job bringing it back to life, I can actually see great grandmother's face more clearly. We are most grateful for your restoration work, much appreciated.

Many thanks


Best regards

Helen,

It was my pleasure in helping you and your family out. I too am stuck in the same position with many family photos that need major restoration such as the photo of your great grandmother.

All the best,
Breitling
