Default Photo restoration.

Photos are memories and the only thing that can be physically held when there's nothing left to hold. I get a lot of satisfaction from doing these.
This is my latest one. Origonal is over 40 yrs old. It is the only pic she has of her mother from this time period.

Before:



Several hours later I have this.




The client was in tears when I presented the repaired photo to her.

Damn! You do a superb job. I know how it takes MANY hours per photo. It's painstakingly slow work to fix just a few pixels at a time, cloning, blending, etc. Esp. tricky on faces. The outcome you achieve is awesome! Well done.
