Restoration (i)

I was requested by a colleague at work if I could restore an old photograph of her father. The original photograph (above left) was a passport sized image and was severely damaged by time and wear.

The resulting scan of the image highlighted the full extent of the damage and appeared to be a difficult task to accomplish, especially with the deep cracks across the facial area.

Using Photoshop and a number of tools such as clone, content fill and patching, I set about restoring the image much patience and a few hit and misses on the way.  The final restoration (above right) took me around 5 hours to accomplish and was very pleased with the result.

If you’re interested in me restoring a photograph or colourising an old black and white image for you, then please view my Photo Restoration page for details.
