Burt Munro is a New Zealand legend and this black and white photo was brought to me for restoration and printing. Burt was the world record holder on his hand built and modified 'Indian' motor bike. This photo had multiple creases and a large yellow stain that needed removal and touch up. The final restored photo is now much cleaner and will be enjoyed for many years to come.
Richard sent me this photo by email to restore just the lady and not worry about all the damage around the edges. But I suggested that I cut out the couple and make a new background and that would keep this as a complete photo. So using Photoshop I was able to convert to B&W and using different channel mixes was able to remove all the yellow blotches. I then cleaned up the other damage and created a new background layer. Richard was very happy with the results.
Tony had some old photos and this half frame badly damaged slide, that he wanted to have restored for his wife. The slide was very dirty and very discoloured. There were hundreds of small black mold spots covering this slide. Using the digital ice feature on my scanner during the scanning process. I was able to remove these and with a few more hours of patience I cleaned up the photo. Then used several colour adjustment layers in Photoshop to correct the colour cast and sharpen up the image.
