Welcome to RP, John. Probably the most recommended book on restoration/retouching is "Restoration and Retouching" (or "Retouching and Restoration") by Katrin Eismann. She has 2 versions out now. Make sure you get the latest. They're excellent books that are easy to follow.

Thanks for info

Ed,

Thanks for the information on Katrin's book. I'm currently restoring some civil war and late 1890's photo's. The civil war photo's need a great deal of restoration. With all the rain in Oregon I can't hardly wait to get an take some photo's in the sunlight.

Again, thanks for taking the time to provide the info.



John

Actually, the latest edition of Katrin's book is the 3rd edition which is also current with the latest version of Photoshop (CS2). It is well worth the money (IMO).
Regards, Murray

In addition to Katrin Eismann's book being an exceptional learning tool (she has a website with most of the example images available for download so you can work alongside the lesson), she is an extremely helpful and thoughtful person. She promptly answers her own e-mails and is very genuine and extremely nice when it comes to answering questions.

Best of all - you get to see some of my work - pages 135 and 321, as well as an example in her user gallery on her website. And to think all I did was ask her a question - she peeked at my website and asked me to contribute.

Good luck!

I have already looked at your web site. Great!!!

Thanks for you help.

John
