Antique Photo Restoration

A simple, but satisfying job to take a photo found behind another in an old photo frame and return it to one piece. I was fortunate to be able to make my own very high-res scan of the original, and that the pieces were in good condition for their age.

The break of the two pieces was clean and rejoining them digitally was straightforward. The rest was removal of dust, dirt and defects, plus cleaning up the borders.
