Repairing an old family portrait

.flickr-photo { border: solid 2px #000000; }.flickr-yourcomment { }.flickr-frame { text-align: left; padding: 3px; }.flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; }

My grandma’s 90th birthday is coming up, so we’ve dug up a bunch of old photo albums to be made into a video slideshow. This family portrait was probably taken before 1930 (that’s my grandmother on the extreme right, and I don’t think she could have been more than 12 then), and has faded, peeled, and cracked in many places.

I spent about 3 hours in Photoshop retouching it and I think it’s turned out pretty well. Of course it’s better looking when viewed full-size .

If it’s not enough that your spelling is terrible, here’s a way to let on that you’re selling some kind of fake ipod!
