Fairly new to restoration, but I need help ...

With this photo of my Mother and her Grandmother. I've been working on it with GIMP, then I got Photoshop which makes it a lot easier. There seems to be a lot of surface stuff on the original photo, water spots, and general uneven fading I'd like to correct. I'm not sure how much better the image can be made, but I'd like to even out the texture and contrast and maybe bring out more detail if possible.

I am not looking to have the work done for me, I just want to know HOW to do what I want.

Thanks

Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, have fun!

You can post a fairly large pictures which is under 100k using the save for web function in Photoshop as described here:
Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link, but also always attach an under 100K version here (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).
If you do not have your own site to host your images then some alternative Image Hosts are: ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO) or mediafire.com (100 Meg per file, free) then post a link here in the thread to the site that is hosting your larger image. There are many other sites on the web to host your images also!

This would work better with a bigger picture.
Here is a try, with the small picture.
