Photoshop Guru

  1. Ok guys i know this is a bit of a long shot, but atm i have a old photo (the usual marks that photo's get over time, faded etc) which i have scanned into the computer and i have bepy with the results i have got so far....en playing around with it for for a month or so now trying to get it back to a decnet standard, but being no guru on photoshop or the photo editing software i have decided that i may require addition help to get it to a standard that i am happy with.

    If there anyone out there that is a guru and can help me with this or who know of a place/shop that specialises in this type of work, that info would be great :? not fussed where i have to go to get it done, just not happy with the quality of it atm

    cheers stewy :)
  2. Send it over mate, i'll give 'er a tinker.

    Usually pretty good, cleaned up a fair few old film shots for the family in my time.

    Send the largest format possible, preferably straight from the scanner.
  3. ok so what size do you want me to send it over as?.... i can re-scan it again, to whatever size is best.

    cheers stewy :)
  4. Send over the copy you've been editting, and a full size re-scanned, as big as it will allow you, without stretching it or blowing out the pixels.

    just choose something like "full res" or "high quality" on your scanning options.

    Maybe email them to me at VB_SLE at hotmail dot com

    they might be too big for photobucket any what not.
  5. I'm not sure how important the original print is to you, but here's a link to some good information on basic photo conservation Stewy:


    It's great we have the technology to reproduce old prints, and I intend to have the same done with my collection. Call me sentimental but there's something about an old (original) photo that fascinates me. It's less to do with the image itself...more to do with that moment in time being captured. :)
  6. Stewy, if you are still looking for somebody to restore your photo try Rebecca at http://www.fotoart.com.au/

    She did an excellent job restoring my dads old photo,
