Old Photo Restoration WIP -Tips Plz

Hey, im looking for some advice on what else I can do to improve my photo restoration.

The only thing that was done was auto color/tone/contrast. levels and removed cracks. This pretty much the extent of my restoration abilities. Any other advice what can be done to make this better?

The photo was too yellowish, so that it became reddish after applying auto color. Cleaning crack and blemishes will improve the image, the color uniformity have to attain through the mixing of the color/tone properly. Photo mixer and photo filter will help you to attain this.

Re: Old Photo Restoration WIP -Tips Plz

Good morning-
What a wonderful image! I just looked at the image on my desktop and it appears to have been a colorized image and not this correct?
I'd love to know what you have done with this image; I as a learner/hobbyist would of course clean up the boo-boos, maybe desaturate then work "up", restoring the colors that are in the image to brighten them a bit.
Lots of work but worth the time and experience factor.

A good restoration is all about seeing things beyond the scratches/damages and rectifying it .

Cleaning and tone correction is the most important part in restoring an image.

I would suggest you to convert the image in to black and white and colorize if you are creating a color image rather than trying to change or improve the colors which is there already.

Also try to sharpen the image using shake reduction tool in the sharpen options.
