    I just wanna see what you lot can do, this is one out of four photos that didn't come out right...

    "I just wanna see what you lot can do" isn't the best brief for letting us know what it is you're trying to accomplish or change . I've tried a quick (5 mins) fix - adjusting the colour balance, bringing some more contrast into the "flashed out" areas - but this is a pretty low-res image. Is it a scan of a film photo or a digital original? If it's a digital original then it might be worth using Neat Image or something like that to reduce the jaggies (I haven't done that as I've recently upgraded the computer and not got around to reinstalling Neat Image yet); if it's a scan from a "real" photo then it would be worth rescanning at a higher resolution.

      Well thanks for that mate, not my fault 'bout the res, she scanned it, not me

        Hmm yes, I have that problem when my mother scans things for me - she hasn't really got the hang of the fact that it's possible to scan at a higher res ... If you can get it rescanned at 300dpi (and preferably save your working copy as a tif rather than a jpg) then you'd have a lot more to work with - the problem with the current image is that working on the colour and contrast problems makes the resolution/jaggies problems worse.

          Hi Folks,

          A friend on the east coast sent me this scan of a photo she has and asked if there was anything I could do to fix it.

          Since I don't have access to the original, and the scan is marginal, I have been trying my best to get this back to something worthwhile, but...

          Tin type in baaaad shape. Original dimensions are 1 x 1.5 inches. It has a wrinkle in the middle, which doesn't help. The real problem(s) are the dark spot on the eyes. I really have no idea what to do with this. Can anyone help? -- Curtis in Colorado...

          Enlarging a photo
          by cinderella
          Help !!! Should I resample or not when enlarging a photo? From what I've been reading both methods are recommended. Also , is the scan resolution critical when one is going to enlarge. I am restoring a 1" x1" headshot photo of two people taken about 1900 and want to enlarge it for family reunion...
