  • Repairing old photo.

    This is an old photo of my grate grandparents taken in 1912. As you can see there is a stain over the grater part of the photo. It becomes more visible when I started to color it. I can't seem to get rid of the stain could any one help me and maybe show me what I'm missing.

      This is an old photo of my great grandparents taken in 1912. As you can see there is a stain over the grater part of the photo. It becomes more visible when I started to color it. I can't seem to get rid of the stain could any one help me and maybe show me what I'm missing.

          I've merged these two threads as they're about the same subject.

            First I added a 1" border all the way around the picture, straightened, cropped, then resized to original size.

            Converted your picture to B/W using Russell Browns "Film-Filter" method as shown here (it is a movie and may be a long download.. be patient please).
            I adjusted the red and yellow channels till they both showed as white as possible using all three sliders.

            Used "Neat Image" found here at the default "Muddy looking Image"to remove a little noise.

            Followed this Tutorial to clean up image.. (lots of cloning and healing toward the end)

            Using this procedure should get you started on your way to wards coloring.. Get a GOOD image first before you start painting

            ~~Original~~cleaned a bit~~Sepia~~

              by Paul2
              I have an old photo of my mother and some of her friends standing in front of an old car which I have just found out is a Jowett Javelin. The photo was in very poor condition and I've basically had to piece it back together again. The problem I have is that I need to blend the parts together to make...

              Tape residue on old albumen photo
              by irsayj
              Hi all. I have an old family photo (ca. 1900). It appears to be a large sepia albumen print on heavy card stock.

              The photo split down the middle many decades ago, and a long-gone relative used what seems to be (are you sitting down?) black electric tape to "repair" it. ...
