Question Re: Want to see Mom's young face

Hello, I'm trying again I've attached Mom & Dad's Photo. Now what I would like to do is make this photo clear enough to see Mom & Dad's young faces, if this is possible. I never seen pictures of my parents this young. I do have Photo Shop 6. But I'm only learning how to use it. There's so much to learn. If someone could help me I sure would appreciate it. Thank You josie j

Levels, Curves, take the yellow out using Hue/Saturation

Then lots of tweaking to taste

seeing as you were interested in the faces I cropped and made a circle vignette and toned it some to maintain the OLD look

Cropped, took out tree, filtered.
Very nice photo and good luck on your restore!

It will add greatly to your family history and be
a great photo to pass down to many generations to come.

Re: Want to see Mom's young face

it would help tremendously if you had a better scan. i'm posting a portion of your photo that i've blown up to show you why. notice all the square blocks this image is divided up into. this can come from several different things, a poor scanner, a low resolution scan, software used with a scanner, enhancements done in a photo editor, and plugins. there could be other sources, as well, but the point is, these blocks make it difficult to do a decent restore. what i'd prefer is a high resolution scan, with ALL scanner software 'enhancements' and 'cleaning' turned off. your scan shld be at least 300 ppi (pixels per inch (dots)) with 600 being much better. when saving your image for posting here, make the image size AT LEAST 800 x 600 (or 600 x 800). use the 'save for web' function in photoshop, though, i'm not sure that exists in ps6.

oh, and welcome to RP
