Repairing this Old Photo

Hello everyone, I'm new at this forum. I was at canon forum and came across someone referring this site to me about restoration. I have an Old picture of my wife when she was a baby, this was one of a few pictures that were saved before their house was burned down in the Philippines. Cut it short I would like to know if this photo of hers would be able to be restored, and any good photo restoration place here in west covina (los angeles area), ca?? thanks

Re: Repairing this Old Photo

Hello,

This is just a color correct as its a small thumbnail. If you want to know more on how I did it and how you can recreate this, just let me know what editor your using and i'll get back to you.

Hope it helps,

Hi FJRocker,

I don't have a recommendation for a restorer, but, yes, it can be restored.

Here's my try with your small file, a larger file will produce better results.

Question Re: Repairing this Old Photo

Thanks guys for restoring the photo, I know the people in this forum are good with restoring. I'll try a local camera shop Ritz camera, they said they can do it... I'll just find out if they can do a good job...=|

Here is an action that will fix ONLY THIS PICTURE automaticly.

Just download un-zip, then doubble click on it. shoud load automaticly. open your image, then push play. Start with original file.

Look through the process and the settings. everything is there.

Reduced the damage, then ran it through levels, took out the overcast, and a few other things.

What a lovely child!
