Photo Restoration_Cynthia Downey


This is an old picture of my dad I found, I thought it would make the project a little more interesting if you knew who it was in the photo, so I decided on this. Mainly I used the spot healing brush tool and the healing brush tool to get rid of the scratch marks in the photograph. Then I played with the vibrance, hue/saturation, and color balance. I was trying to bump up the contrast and get rid of the yellowish color, but I still wanted that dirty old look to it. The main problem I had was with the reddish blob behind and overlapping his head, I did what I could but it still looks a little blurbish to me. I'm mainly satisfied with getting rid of the scratches, the color was extremely annoying and i'm still not satisfied with it.
