Excellent guide to photo restoraion,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital Restoration from Start to Finish: How to repair old and damaged photographs (Paperback)
This is a first class book for those interested in restoring old photos. It goes into great detail and at the beginning has a few pages devoted to images showing various types of old or damaged photos and how they can be repaired or improved and where to look in the book to obtain advice on how to do it.
Having said that, previous experience in photo restoration would undoubtedly be useful. If you came to this book as a complete beginner, I think you would struggle.
It also advises on both hardware and software requirements, and upon scanning photos into the computer, in a very helpful section near the beginning. Many of the solutions do require either Photoshop in its full version, or one of a number of different plug-ins which tend not to be free to obtain, so you would have to regard this book as a detailed bible on photo restoration but at the same time be prepared to invest in further software.
Thoroughly recommended for serious photo restorers, but more than is required for the casual photo editor!
