Hi to the clever specialist photo restorers on this forum.
This is the only photo our family has of my wife's grandmother with her two daughters together.

This is a copy of the unmodified original. I have tried with other copies to clean it up, but the software I have is not up to the level required.
I would really appreciate any restore which results in a pic better than this one.

Many thanks ..... Selwyn James

There is a lot of reflected light on this. Would it be possible to scan it again with the print gently weighted down on to the scanner glass? Also the light is directional so it would help if you did two scans.... the second one being turned 180 degrees . This way we can merge the two which eliminates a lot of the reflections (that is to say, shadows and high spots of the cracks).

The "glare" is silver mirroring caused by damp reacting with the emulsion. I think you'll find this is what it looks like.
