Hi Lauraine,
I had looked into doing the course but over here (U.K.) it's quite expensive, but I have signed up for the New Year

Hi everyone, if you would like to try out some software that is comparable to Photoshop, PaintShop Pro by Jasc is quite good. They have a trial period and it contains all the tools you need to make repairs.

Give it a go.

Cheers, Peter.

HI Amy,
Take a look at photo colourising on this board.  Look under tall ted I repaired atorn pic and adjusted the image.
So if I can do it so can you.  If you dont have the time scan it at about 1000 to 1200 if it is under 8x10 and send it to me I will try and repair it for you.  Let me know by personal message and I will give you my email.
This board only allows for low resolution picx which are hard to repair.

I have an old photograph of my granddad and his sisters. Will I be able to repair it myself digitally or will I need a "professional"?

Here's a before and after of a photo posted by AmyK some time ago. Quite  a few people have had a go at this one, so I thought I would have a go as well. It looks like the original is now very fragile and has been rescued just in time.
