Re: get rid of bottom fading etc.

Thank you :-).
I hope it helps though ;-).

Btw. it'd be possible to make above action (with the calculations command) 100% accurate (at this state, it's by far not), but that would make it even MORE uncomfortable and I really don't think, that this is worth the accuracy. You could probably use a layer mask after you did your repair as well to hide stuff you don't want.

Re: get rid of bottom fading etc.

Stretching out the image, I do not see any real image data below the knees of the man on the right. Crop that out. As for the spots, you can use the clone stamp tool or spot healing brush on those.

Do you have the negative of the image? It may be better to scan that to start. It may also be free of those spots which are a sign of the age of the image print and some kind of chemical action over time.

Re: get rid of bottom fading etc.

After reading all the advice I just didn't realize the difficulty this presented. I really don't think that its worth the time. I ended up by masking the photo with dark color and then painting over the spotted area. Came out presentable.

Thanks all of you for your time and interest. I know that I certainly learned quite a bit from the discussion. I also learned how little I know when compared to Jonas, Freddie and others.

Thanks again.
