Wow, That is brilliant!!

Can he tell us how he did it??? So we can do others for ourselves? Which program did he use, for example?

I'm glad you like it.

He uses a programme called adobe photoshop.  He uses it for his job - he is a designer - so he's very familiar with the programme.  To learn yourself would take quite some time though.

Just post any more pictures on here and he'll have a look at them for you.

Hi Hackstaple, I primarily use Photoshop 7. Does quite a nice job as long as the resolution of the scan is high to begin with.

I've saved it to our computer, I'll get him to work on it when he comes in.  Its in a worse condition so it will take more time.

That was fabulous. Handsome critter wasn't he? My father and unfortunately with too much of an eye for women.
Thanks very much - a great job.

Help!!!!! this is my only picture of my Grandparents who died long before I was born, so it is rather special to me as it is the only thing I have that belonged to them. 

Can anything be done about it I know it is very faded, do I need to send it away to be done? (I am usless with computors). Advice needed.
