Project 3: Restoring Life to Heirloom Images

Skills and Tools: Levels Adjustment Layer

There is nothing more important to a family than its history. History is found in many ways, places, and formats. For example, you may have historical documents that relate to who you are, or you might have physical artifacts from your ancestors. However, nothing strikes an emotional cord more than a photograph. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words. Yet even while an image freezes a moment in time, the actual photograph is traveling through time and unfortunately, Father Time can do major damage to a photographic image. Fortunately for us we have Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop is your time machine for restoring old images. While there are many methods for restoring an old grayscale image, one of the most consistently successful methods is through the use of a Levels Adjustment layer.

The Project

In this project you'll take an old image, and through the use of Photoshop's amazing Adjustment layers, restore the image. It's not that difficult, and the final results are awesome.
