  • Water damaged photo from 1889

    This is the only photo we have of a Great, Great Grandfather, his wife and two children. He was 48 when this was taken and died one year later. A daughter is behind and between the man and his wife. She is 3 to4 years older than the boy on the left who is 8. I know this photo is very bad. I had tried, but am getting nowhere with it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    To get a true black and white image Do Image Adjustment Black and White. Then to increase black point do a curves adjustment - hold done Alt when pressing Auto and then click enhance per channel contrast and snap neutral tones. The rest will require cloning, spot healing etc.

      Might want to consider doing some Photo bashing of the image - - or cloning from another old picture - bring back woman's dress, shrubs, etc.

        This photo was found in an old house in the southcentral region of Pennsylvania (Adams County to be exact). I'm presuming the family owned the house in which they are pictured. There was only one owner from 1870 until 1940's. The older gentleman in the middle, if he is the owner, would have been around...

        Hello all, new user here. I am glad to have found this board because recently photo editing using photoshop has become a fascination for me. I am still learning and am by no means very good at it, but I can do basic editing stuff out using clone stamp, red eye removal, etc... I have adobe photoshop...

I would like to know how can I put the two together on one photo beside each other....
