  • Restore lost details

    Ever ran across a Black and White photograph that had lost a bit of it's detail? If so, try this simple, yet effective, trick.

    Simply make a new layers of the entire image using the Multiply setting. You will slowly start to see details come out that the naked eye cannot see. If the Layer, or Layers, are too dark or detailed, well, simply adjust their opacity.

    The paradigm of visible
    by roger_ele
    I have just discovered what I am sure many know - I am afraid that I took Photoshop literally - with the clone stamp tool, the check box selection: Use all layers, does not mean use all layers (funny thing, words and there meanings), it means Use VISIBLE layers.
