Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding density with multiply, part of Photoshop CS6: Restoring Photos.
One of the more common issues effecting overall tonality in older photographs is fading. …A variety of things can lead to the image to fade a little bit, and most …photographic images in fact will fade over time, and so adding density to an …image can make a huge impact in many cases. …Here for example, you can see that everything within the photo looks …relatively washed out. There is simply not very much information here. …But much of that information can be made more dense, can be made a little bit …stronger in the actual image. I'm going to show you a quick and easy …technique that can virtually, instantly add density to any photo.…
It's important to bare in mind that if there's absolutely no information, for …example the white in the sky and the top of tent here, that information can't …magically be brought back. There's simply nothing there. …It is pure white in the image and it's going to stay that way. …Unless I manually add texture into that area of the photo. …But we can dramatically increase the density in other areas of the photo. …
