Thanks

Hi Joanne  :)

When the photo is lightened, it shows marked banding (dark lines) across the image. This could either be the scan or the original negative/print.

I'm on my laptop at the moment so can't take the bands out with limited resources. It would be worth trying to do a larger scan at minimum 300 dpi resolution.

Regards

Hi Joanne
Got rid of banding, and lightened image, but unfortunely there was not enough detail to do much with the baby

Those are all so lovely.  But I am enclosing one that I think has a better resolution. At least I tried to change it.  Can you tell, I'm not really computer savey.
