Chapter 10. Photo Restorations > Restoring Old Black-and-White Prints

Restoring Old Black-and-White Prints

Many of the old prints you’ll need to restore will be black-and-white prints. You’ll find a variety of problems to diagnose and cure, ranging from wrinkles, cuts, and tears, to faded tones or stains. This next section shows you how to fix these problems. We’ll start with an image on the CD-ROM called oldcar.pcx, shown in Figure 10.1. It’s a nostalgic photo for me, because it was taken by a police photographer (my father) after a car crashed in front of my family homestead (seen just behind the Brittain sign on the tow truck) before I was born. We’re going to make this old photo as good as new, in several different steps. Just follow along.
