Photo Restoration – Rejuvenating Family Treasures

Photo Restoration – Rejuvenating Family Treasures

This class is for anyone wanting to restore photographs for family and friends, or for those wanting to add an extra income stream to their business. 


Most of us have family photographs that have irreplaceable value. They are more than likely the last visual links to the families heritage. Unfortunately many photographs pick up verious forms of damage over the years. This on going deterioration limits the lifetime of the photograph to the point where they may not make it into the hands of the next generation.

In Photo Restoration – Rejuvenating Family Treasures I'll be working on two black and white photographs where I'll be showing you just how easy it can be to restore them to their former glory using Photoshop.


The assignment is to find an old family Black and White photograph and restore it using what has been learnt from the lessons. 

Post a before and after of the image you've worked on. 

I would love it if you added a little story about the photograph and its significance. That's Optional.
