TIP: Missing Pieces

Sometimes the only way to repair a photo that has missing pieces, is to "borrow" from another photograph. I keep a folder of every good photo I come across, to use for "parts". Many of the older photos have people in similar poses, and they can come in handy if you need to replace something such as hands, feet, ears, etc.

Thanks for that fantastic tip - restoring photos with missing pieces always intimidates me, but I think this will help a lot!

They thought grave robbing had disappeared with Burke & Hare. But I have used the Frankenstein approach myself on many occasions.
