Faded photo from 1919 - Ellen and William
« on: Wednesday 28 October 15 22:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Can anything be done to restore this photo, it's faded and old. ???
Bit of a challenge I know.
Apologies for the size of picture but someone scanned it for me.

Regards
Will  :)

I took a stab at it. My goal was to boost it from 'severely faded' to 'moderately faded'. I had to stop before I turned it into an impressionist painting. Hope it helps a little.

Cheers,
