Invaluable guide to scanning and restoring photos,
This review is from: Digital Restoration from Start to Finish: How to repair old and damaged photographs (Paperback)
I read Digital Restoration From Start to Finish before embarking on a major project - to scan a 1,000 or so family slides and negatives. I'm really glad I did.
Scanning may sound easy, but there are actually lots of challenges - for example dealing with dirt on negatives and unmounting slides. The book is full of good advice on how to approach these problems, and gives advice on how to cope with and restore photographs that, over the decades, have deteriorated as they inevitably do. The book shows how to do these fixes in Photoshop, though the tips could easily be applied to other software such as PaintShop Pro.
This was a useful book, I so would certainly recommend it for others doing the same sort of scanning project.
