Re: help me

There is not much that you can do, except maybe sharpen the image. If it was in digital format, we might have been able to figure something out.

Re: help me

Start with a better scan. Use the histogram control in the scanner software to improve the overall density and contrast.

At this stage you will still have a damaged image to deal with but it is recoverable to a degree.

What software will you be using to edit this image? And what have you got so far?

Re: help me

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

How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads:
(Click here)

Mostly used Polaroid Scratch and Dust Filter... (free) dust and scratch filter
For the white cracks: copied the background layer twice.. polaroid D&S on top layer (light setting box checked)... hide all mask... paint white over scratches.... merged down.... copy twice... use Polaroid dust and scratch again on the top layer again

For the Dark spots... merged down.... copy twice... use Polaroid dust and scratch again on the top layer again, with the light setting box un-checked

For the big blobs I selected white spots with Quick selection tool expanded 2pixels then filled with Content Aware

Re: help me

thought i would give this a try.. used decrack action to remove most of the cracks, noiseware to remove the few remaining small cracks, grain surgery to match the original grain and then some healing and cloning brush work along with the patch tool to repair the large damaged areas.

Re: help me

The result will depend on how much time you're willing to spend on this photo,
I used frequency separation.
