Hi,
I'm wondering if any of you can fix this old photo? My dad scanned it, and it is giving me trouble trying to lighten it up.
Thanks!

Hi Debby,
Did he scan it at a high resolution ?

I've tried to enhance it but there's no image in the darker areas, but here's my attempt with less of the red tones :)

Thank you for your efforts!
I have suggested he re-scan it with higher resolution & more light... hopefully he can locate the picture... I was going to take it home & do it for him, but he couldn't find it... well, hopefully he will run across it, its very precious.
Appreciate your help. Its better then I had done. :D

Hi DebbyR

Unfortunately there is no digital info in the dark/shadow areas as ymfoster said

It would take a Photoshop wizard or a rescan of the original to make any significant improvements...

The image is too small. If you want some really good results scan it at 300DPI +, save as .tif or .bmp and upload it to a file sharng service.
