Great Grandparents Leontis & Varvara, Cyprus 1956
« on: Sunday 14 June 20 11:20 BST (UK) »
Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all staying safe during this pandemic!

Was just recently sent two identity card photos of my late grandparents Leontis and Varvara from 1956 (they weren't scanned with a scanner at high res, but rather seem to be a photo of the images). Would love to get the photos restored (no need for colour, great with original colouring), as there are some tears, fading and blemishes about, plus probably a need for some adjustment to image sharpness. The images are probably off on alignment too. Would ideally like to have a separate copy of each restored photo, and one version where there two images are amalgamated as one restored photo side by side - as they both date from the same month in 1956.

As always greatly appreciate any efforts to bring these images to life!

Stay safe and keep well,

Anthony  :)

The bad lighting in the originals is somewhat negated by the application of Colour, plus a bit of arty-farty licence, cheers, Ian
