Hello everyone

I just registered and haven't yet even looked around but I'm sure I will find some interesting information here.

By way of background, a few years ago I began a project at our local county historical association to sort through, catalog, identify where possible, scan and display online selected portrait photos from a collection of well over 10,000 glass negatives dating back to the early 1900s. Because we have a few portrait studio sitting logs from 1902 thru 1905, those are the photos I've concentrated on. Few of the glass negatives are in perfect shape, most have some degree of fading and other damage, but I'm still able to reproduce some pretty good positive images in most cases.

Little by little I've become better with my scanning techniques but, other than adjusting light and dark, I do very little retouching (as I understand the term). It will be great if I can just learn more techniques for repairing damaged negatives and producing better positive images. That is my purpose for joining this forum.

Thank you for having me.
