Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing your source image, part of Restoring Photos with Photoshop CS6.
When it comes to restoring old photographs one of the biggest challenges …that we face is the raw material that we're actually working with. …Obviously in many cases older photographs are going to be faded, or other wise …damaged, and we'll want to address those issues. …But before we even get started with that it's important to give yourself the best …starting point possible. And that means working with the best …source image possible. Obviously, if you had multiple copies of …the same photo, you would choose the one that was in the best condition.…
But it's also important to choose the appropriate source. …You want to start with the best original possible. …And that means not just picking the best version, if you have multiple copies of …an image for example, but that you start with the best source material. …And that means using an original transparency if you're working with …slides, a film negative, or even a glass plate for certain older images. …The last option you'll want to consider is a photographic print. …
