          I need some damaged photos to work on and practice the different techniques of photo restoration.

          by wildwood_pro
          What should my first steps be in working on this image. Especially how do I recover the girls face and remove the crud on it? I use PS7 and am very new to working on images this way. Thanks for taking the time to help me.
