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.
