    Hi gerry :D


    I've been working (slowly :D ) on some old family photos from the late 1890's.
    This one was shot in 1898
    first the original

    the improved( a little cleanup left to do )

    Seems like no matter how much you work on them, there's always one scratch left to fix :D

    Here's one that I had a little fun with :)
    Folks in the 1800's often seemed rather stern
    and I thought I'd bring out a slight smile in this
    photo........

    This one is an aunty who died a couple of years after this was taken about 1920. Salvaged from cleanup at grandparents place in the 70's.

    Really good work on those Stoner, I'm just amazed at how old those pics are!

    The smile isn't quite Mona Lisa, but 'tis much less stern :) (y)

    I guess it must have taken alot af planning and preparation to capture images back then, and I think it's really cool you have images that date back so far reflecting your lineage.

    Those photos must be (and should be) treasures to you.

    Great save gerry (y)
    Takes a lot of effort.
    I'm getting quicker, but there are some things I still handle poorly and the re-do's seem to take forever :rolleyes:

    Thanks RT :)

    It's amazing the photo paper and the images last as long as they do.

    It is amazing.

    Be interesting in a hundred years when we are all dead and gone and one of the great grand kids finds a box of old cd's in the attic. "what are these mum?"

    And ya know, they might even find a print on paper, maybe not by inkjet nor laser - but by the silver element in the earth that started it all.

    :) Mum will look at the CD and say "i dont know deary, but it won't fit in anything we have, perhaps we should visit grandma today ;)

    She will be glad to see y'all come for a visit, whether the CD works or not. (y)

    Good reason to burn to a cd the images as a data cd and not use another program that they would not have so they could see the images.

    This is a shot of my front garden from a few years ago...
    Yes I shot into the sun :eek: using an instant disposable camera :eek: , but I was wondering if anyone could sort of clean it up a bit. ie define, but don't take away the neighbour's golf cart (it identifies when and where we were living)
    There was no garden at all when we moved in...just rocks and grass, so it would be nice to have for the before and subsequent later years garden shots.
    Thanks in advance if you can fix it....or tell me to toss it because it's not worth fixing ;).
    Carolyn :)
