Arthur Killick 1891-1942 (Kent, England)
« on: Friday 19 February 21 14:00 GMT (UK) »
The attached is the only photo I have of my maternal grandfather. He died when my mother was young and I never got to meet him - he died 20 years before I was born.

I've seen some amazing restorations on here and would be incredibly grateful if someone could have a go at restoring or improving the photo. I've tried the photo enhancer on MyHeritage, but am not overly impressed - I've even found it gives women beards and moustaches!

Alternatively, I do have Gimp, but have no idea how to use it to enhance photos properly and any advice on how to use it for this photo would be very helpful.

Thank you!

Peter and Ian - thank you both so much! Sorry for the delay in replying, have been dealing with family hospital emergencies. Arthur certainly looks less like a dementor with eyes! I'm dead chuffed!
