Thread: Old Photo Restoration

  1. #1

    Default Old Photo Restoration

    Was at the PC show and quite fascinated by the Epson scanner's ability to restore original colour to old faded reddish coloured photos. Looking at it, its all in the software. Wondering if there is a one touch freeware I can download that will do this job?
    Appreciate any suggestions.
    cheers

    Record an action
    1) Auto level
    2) Auto colour
    3) Auto contrast

    And tada, you have a 1 touch thing to do the job.

    I have an older Epson Perfection 1650 scanner and R210 printer that do not have this feature.
    Its auto mode simply makes sure the colour is true to original!
    Anyone can share the techniques to correct such colours in a photo editor (not photoshop)? i.e. what to add and what to minus..etc.
    Thanks in advance...

    Not if your old photos had blemishes on the print itself, those scanners that came bundled with Silverfast software quite good.
