Smile 2 Pictures in need of help

I would like to give my dad a couple pictures which he has that are in need of repair. I have Photoshop 2014 v6.3 however I have only used to fix photo color/contrast. I have ordered a number of manuals to learn how to actually use the program. I am certainly willing to take the time to fix these if anyone can give me detailed step by step instructions or what they feel is the best tutorial on the web to help. Any help anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Re: 2 Pictures in need of help

Starting point for both was a good white balance then just basic clean up.

On the couple I used the Pattern Stamp tool set @ multiply after defining and selecting that image as a pattern to darken the curtains and his uniform and parts of her dress (BTW I wore the "Ike Jacket" Back in the 50s)

a lot left to do on each but they are just samples of what can be achieved with a little practice and patience

Re: 2 Pictures in need of help

Thanks for taking the time to work on these. They are vastly improved. Unfortunately I have had Photoshop programs for years and never used it for anything other and color and brightness. Since my dad gave me a bunch of photos I realized I should have learned the program years ago. If you can recommend a online course or book(s) it would be appreciated. I have ordered a couple of instruction books. But I have no idea the quality. I really appreciate the time you took to work on these. So will my father and mother.
