Old Photo

Postby keithk56 » Fri Sep 26, 2014 6:41 pm

Well the subject was the best I could think of!
It is regarding an old photo that I have but more about what is written on the back of it. it was written in pencil and the time lapse of a hundred years it has faded to next to impossible to read.
Anybody know how to enhance the writing without damaging the photo?

scan it to a computer and adjust brightness and contrast, changing to embossed sometimes helps.
you of course will need a photo editing program, I use Photoshop Expensive or Photoimpact not so bad price wise and would do what you want.
there are probably free ones out there.
