Image Restoration

So, instead of finding some random image on the web, I opted for using one of my own. It wasn't this damaged originally, but I had to get creative for instructional purposes.


This was capture by my grandfather, at my Marine Corps Recruit Training Graduation, back in 2004. There were better ones to pick from, but my grandfather kept the negatives and I didn't have doubles for them. Anywho, after manually damaging it, I scanned it and fixed it little by little. Aside from the clone tool, I used some smearing and softening for some of the more stubborn spots. To finish it off, I kicked the vividity up a tad. That's all I have...
