Mark, you might get nice sharp images but they are no good for restoration.  I've been restoring photos since 1995.

Do not give wrong info. How much experience do you have of restoring photographs?

For restoration purposes, images should be scanned in colour mode.

Must say all the excellent restorers on here when I was learning always told me to scan in colour for restoration purposes. 

And my friend the local photographer who does a lot of work for his photographic club, also tells me always to scan in colour.     :-\ :)   He is a professional at this game.

If I may but in here...as a restorer of 11 years, I have always been led to believe from what I have read, and also learned from other restorers that a colour scan will always bring out the greatest detail as it picks up the full tonal range of the photo from black, through greys to white. It doesn't matter what colour the original is, the principal is the same.

OK, lets try this.

I've just seen this, YT. It looks much better for restoration. I'll see if I can restore it tomorrow. I must get on with Christmas stuff today  :)
