    Re: WW2 photo restoration advice

    Yes I have a better version the upload only allows for 100k image max dodge and burn did cross my mind and likewise masking and lightening that area - just wondered if i was missing something else?

    How about masking it and adjusting the levels? That might lighten it some.

    Hi Doug
    Dodge and Burn might be a quicker solution than just finding a "clever" way.

    There might be other options yet this is a fairly compressed JPEG which makes attempting some "clever" approaches untenable. Do you have the original uncompressed image (or less compressed JPEG)?

    WW2 photo restoration advice

    A friend has asked me to sort this picture of his grandfather out for him as he only had a photo of the photo i corrected the perspective and have given it a quick look.
    The damage is fairly limited and should be easy enough to remove the one thing tha is troubling me is there are areas - toward bottom left mostly that are marked (doesnt look like shadow)
    Ive looked in th echannels and none seem particulary helpful in terms of reducing that - are there any other clever ways i could remove it or at least minimise it

    Restoration 1952 photo
    by bpurvis
    This is my father-in-law in 1952. There was quite a bit of damage and the telephone wires nearly drove me nuts! I considered just cropping them out, but wanted to keep the original content intact. I can always crop one to print.

    Can you please tell me how I did and if there is anything...

    Photo restoration of my Dad
    by Chilihook
    This picture is of my Dad when he was a kid in the early 1940s. He's the one in the middle. As you can see in the original photo, a good deal of the picture is missing and there are cracks running all through it.

    I did this resto about 2 years ago and was my second attempt at a serious...
