In this course, professional photo restorer Janine Smith describes how to use Photoshop to restore, retouch, and enhance old or damaged photos. It covers evaluating scanned images for imperfections, using the Clone Stamp tool and other Photoshop tools, and addressing common problems and their fixes, starting with the basics (fading, spots, and paper texture) and continuing with more complex challenges (rips, adhesive tape, ink marks, mold, and more). Also included are methods for fixing exposure problems and colorcast as well as advanced techniques in photo restoration, such as replacing backgrounds and recreating missing facial features and body parts. The course includes a project that takes an image from damaged start to restored finish.
Sometimes it's good, in all of the monotony of the specks and spots, to tackle something next that's just really simple and lets you feel like you've really accomplished something quickly, so you can move on to the next part of the project. We're going to fix this corner, just very, very simple, very quick. I'll start by putting a new blank layer on top of your specks and spot repair, using the Create a New layer icon. Go over to your toolbar. Select your Clone Stamp tool.
Adjust your brush as needed, open and close bracket keys. Make this a little bigger. And use Alt or Option to select your source. Let's start here and just move over, and we'll just clone it in. This is a very quick, very easy. Go from the other end here, and just fill in your spot. And when you're done, your corners are all fixed, there could be a few things you want to fix later, but we're just trying to fill in that spot.
Now we can move on to something a little more challenging, like these stains, for instance.
