fixing old photo

Recommended Posts

I have a very old pic of my daughters together when they were 3 and 4 years of age their now 25 and 26. The pic is very faded and its a wallet size.

I would like to have it enlarged a brought back ot life to give each of the a copy. How can this be done ? I'm not in no way photo guy. Any suggestions

1. Do you still have the negative?

2. You can pay to have it fixed up digitally.

3. You can scan the picture yourself, then fix it up digitally yourself, though you'll pay a pretty penny for some of the software.

Negative on the negative. I know the software is expensive, looking for maybe a company that can do this. Or maybe even someone here that can do it for a fee.

Depending on the quality of the scan, i could help out, i have studied for graphic design and i am quite good at it too.

My Photoshop skills are quite good, so i could take a shot at it, if you do not mind sharing the picture with a stranger.

The fact that it is a wallet sized original is going to limit the amount of up-scaling you can do without imparting some granularity and loss of definition to the finished product.  However, cleaning up the old photo; speck removal, de-yellowing, scratches etc. won't be a problem for anyone that is fairly capable with PS or other image editing software.
