Easy Fixes

Let's start by looking at some of the things you can do to fix up an old picture that may have faded, yellowed, or been damaged. First we'll consider a couple of old family photos that need a little bit of adjusting and touching up. We'll run (literally) through the steps involved in fixing them and the tools you'll need to know how to use. (Remember, you can always flip to the front of the book to refresh your memory about these tools, too.) Finally we'll take an extremely damaged picture and work through it step by step, until it looks like new again.

Some pictures don't need very much work. The photo in Figure 21.1 was taken in 1905 but has been kept in an album away from sunlight for most of the past 97 years. It's turned a little yellow, but all in all it's remarkably well preserved.
