Elizabeth Dalton Can this be improved at all
« on: Sunday 31 October 21 16:06 GMT (UK) »
Hi All
Is this attached photo just too far gone for any improvement?

I have no idea how restorers do manage to work the magic I have seen on other posts  but I do know it must depend on the original starting point.

I hope i have saved it in the best way with regards to dpi and size, but I could get help with that if I need to save it differently to give a better copy.
This is the original photo, taken sometime between 1900 and 1920

Thank you Japeflakes for your time and your skills. The original is very dirty and I was shocked at the number of scratches on the surface when I look at it magnified today on the computer.
It is great what you have done - I have very few photos of this generation of the family so every one is precious.

Thankyou all. I am amazed at what you have done with such a poor quality photo.  You must all be patient people to transform photos in the way you do!
I've always thought they all looked sad on this photo but it is lovely to be able to see Elizabeth's (the woman on the right) features so clearly now.
