Good morning, can anyone help me please? I am restoring a black and white print dating back to the early 1960's which has a fairly grainy sky. There are some scratches in the sky which look as if they may have been made when the negative was squeegeed after washing. I have attached a 100% enlargement of two of the scratches (top & bottom in the attachment), which I hope shows what I mean sufficiently clearly.
I have tried lots of ways to get rid of the scratches, spot healing brush, pixel nudging, patch tool, dust & scratches/history brush etc but nothing has worked to the extent that the repairs are not/will not be visible in the final print (to be 7x5" / 13x18cm in size).
Does anyone have any suggestions please as to what else I can try to remove both the scratches and any evidence they were there please? Many thanks, Smudger 7
