Faded Gt. Grandparents
« on: Friday 22 June 07 16:33 BST (UK) »
I'm very new to this, so Hello everyone.
I wondered if anyone could do anything with this terribly faded photo of my gt. grandparents Henry & Harriet Guite, (or am I asking the impossible)
 It was taken  at Whitsun in 1921.
I don't have the original, it was sent to me as an email attachment.
Thanks in advance.  :)

Hi Marshei

I haven't cleaned the pic but made it clearer to see, cleaning will bring it up a bit more but its not going to be perfect I'm afraid. Resized to post on here. I have the full size if anyone wants it.

I had a little go at clarifying JC's great improvement, but I don't think that it is any better???
In fact, I think that it is worse.

Thanks to everyone who've restored my Gt. Grandparents, how on earth do you do it? It's now better than the original!! Sorry I haven't replied sooner but I've been on holiday for the last 2 weeks.
