Basic Photo Repair

Although Photoshop has hundreds of tools and techniques for applying effects to images and doing all sorts of other fancy things, some of Photoshop's most powerful tools are for prosaic purposes: simply fixing photos. Photo repair can range from something as basic as removing red-eye or dust and scratches to complete restoration of old photos that have become yellowed, creased, or torn over time.

Many cameras these days, both digital and film, have what is known as a “red-eye reduction” mode. With this feature, the camera emits several brief flashes before releasing the shutter. This causes the subject's pupils to contract, which limits the amount of light that can enter and reflect back out. As the name indicates, this mode doesn't eliminate red-eye completely, but it does reduce it significantly.
