repair (COMPLETED WITH THANKS)
« on: Monday 22 June 09 18:57 BST (UK) »
i have this photo of my grandad from 1920's and his first wife who died shortly after,
and only photo we have of both of them, wonder of anyone could tidy it up a bit,
apology for low res' i went to my cousins and scanned a load of photos, and later realised they had been scanned pretty low, so if to low don't worry, next time i go there i will get them done again
TIA :)

My quick attempt.
POSTEES: If possible, PLEASE, scan your images at 300 - 600 dpi, for both ease of restoration and best results
RESTORERS: Feel free to change/improve/colour any restorations posted by myself.  Acknowledgment would be appreciated.
