I have been using Photoshop for the last 5 years producing brochures etc, however I have never used it for restoration of old photos, wouldnt think most graphics people would unless they are one of the specialists and they dont like to give up how they do things (its money to them!!). I assume you are using Photoshop? You could always try the following you might find what you are looking for. Some might be more Mac than PC so some controlls in Photoshop (or toolbars)might be different. http://people.ne.mediaone.net/dcomto/Z/sites.html http://www.adobeevangelists.com/html...stoplevel.html
I agree, if you can scan those photos and get them onto disk so you have them forever!!
