Re: Really, Really Bad Scan of tintype

After removing only the few scratches that bothered me, I tried to bring out the faded details and balance shadows and highlights in this image by using:
  • Exposure Adjustment
  • Levels and Curves Adjustment layers on the whole image, but mostly on selections.
  • Shadows/Highlights
  • Soft Light and Overlay blank layers for enhancing
  • Neat Image to remove noise/artifacts
