Re: Old Photo Taken around 1910

Hi Highlander,

I suspect I've seen the same video (got very excited so looked at quite a few)
- content aware is excellent for an image like this cuts down the work quite a lot.

However I'm finding its not quite as good as shown in some of the Adobe vids
- You sometimes have to fill a few times as it samples from different places and sometimes it fails completely.

When I used it on the image I only used it on the background - no door frames, steps, or people - just the wall and ground

i would remind those that are going for a true, archival restore, that you are taking the image back to when it was taken, so leaving the aging coloring is not correct, unless the original had sepia to begin with.
