  • Repairing an old black and white polaroid

    I am trying to repair this old family photo. It appears the the top laminate got peeled off exposing the ink and photo beneath making it appear yellowish and faded. I have tried to repair it various ways nut it always looks like a 4 year old with a crayon did it. Can anyone suggest alternate repair methods and show step step instructions? I have several other photos like this. Thank you.

    After you heal the white spots, looks like you need to use the burn tool (use it on a separate layer). Do it slowly and lightly and build up.

      This is another of the photos that my brother scanned from old prints and with which I am having trouble. In particular, the white hazy look to the photo. There are quite a few that have this problem.

      60 year old color or black and white photo
      by Gerald McClaren
      Is there a simple technique to determine if a 60 year old photo is color or black and white? The photo is someone great, great, grandfather. The whole photo has a yellowish color over it, and it is hard to tell if it was once a color or black and white.
