Could something be done with this pic?   It's of my mum, on the left (who passed away just recently) and her sister.   Sorry it's so bad, but it's a scan of a scan!

Hoping something can be done, and thanks in advance

Hi Barbara

I can only imagine how dear to you this photo is, so I hope I've done it justice.  I've tried to stay true to the original, however I have enhanced it (which can be reversed if you prefer).

Hope you are keeping your chin up, not an easy time for you that's for sure.

One a bit muted, closer to the original.

WOW......... thank you all for the brilliant restores, I honestly thought nothing much could be done it was so badly damaged..... but I obviously didn't count on you lot being so good.   I should have known better shouldn't I    ;D ;D ;D

Thanks again

And thank you for the kind thoughts on the loss of mum, I'm sorta lost without her!!
