Re: need help with reparing damaged photo

dcom, welcome to RetouchPro. Have a look around and enjoy your stay. Looking forward to seeing some of your work

A very small Image.. 1" tall? A larger photo might help in getting a better restoration..

This tutorial "Restoring an old photograph" by cameraken has become the starting point for most of my projects.

Used in conjunction with this tutorial "Enhancing Details In Unevenly Faded Pictures" by Flora.

There are many other Tutorials in the Tutorial section that are applicable to your picture.. check them out HERE

Used lots of Layers, dust and scratch filter, different levels layers, some painting on new layers and used a lot of Masks to retain and hide unwanted things combined with slow methodical work
(needs a lot more to be done but it gives you an idea of what You can accomplish..)
