  • looking for advise on historic WWII photos

    I have photos taken by my Father in Japan '45 and '46. After seeing the cost of having them restored, I decided to learn how to do it myself. I work in photoshop cs, and have been at it a bit more than a year. What are my chances of making a REAL QUALITY restoration of photos such as this? I'm new to Retouch pro so if I've goofed somehow, please forgive and advise. Thanks

      Sounds like you have a great collection of images. Bit off subject, but have you thought of the historical value of the images
      May be worth showing or discussing the images the these people Here

        Re: WWII photos

        Yes, that's a soldier. I do realize the historical value of the photos. They also have great personal value as I know many of the stories of the photos. I have many photos (all positives, no negatives) so that's one reason why I am learning to restore photos. My dream is to put photos and stories in a book.

          It was difficult working on this image due to it's size, and the amount of fine detail lost through resizing. But this is the result of playing with shadow/highlights adjustment and then running it through neat image set at 120% sharpening and 0% noise reduction.

              Thanks Cassidy
              I find that neat image is a great sharpening tool, as well as noise reduction. I don't know why, but the sharpening seems to come out really well using neat image. I use it more for that now than I do for noise reduction.
              Forgot to mention. I also used burn tool set to 20% on shadows to pull out more of the detail and the hills in the background
