Here are two copies of the same photo. One is faded and the other is restored. I used the black point icon in the shadow area to perform the restoration. This can be done on almost any faded photo.

Looks real good, Chas.
Black point icon? is that the black point dropper in levels?

Nice job, Chas.

I am assuming you scanned an old, faded print? I don't have many old prints, but I sure have a ton of old, faded slides. I have an Epson "Photo Scanner" and one of the features is a "Restore Color" clicker; if it wasn't for that I would be dead. The auto-fix doesn't give me a finished product -- I can never seem to be able to leave well enough alone --- but it gets me a jump-start to a point where I can screw around in Elements to something I like.

As I said, whatever you did worked well.

Rusty, I have a similar scanner & also use the restore color feature, etc. However, I haven't had the greatest success with setting black point in the scanner software (Epson Perfection V500 photo).

Yes,Betty. It was the black point pointer in levels. No, it wasn't scanned. If you look closely, you can see my fingers holding up the faded photo. The photo of the photo was taken with a Nikon D700.(Wish it was mine)....

Fun idea, Chas - taking a pic of a photo :) It turned out great. I hadn't noticed your fingers.

you can see my fingers


Ha, Ha, Ha. I saw the fingers -- well, I saw "something", now I know they are fingers -- didn't realize what you were doing. Hey, whatever works.

Betty, how do you rate that scanner? A friend has asked me for a recommendation on how to go about converting a lot of old film images to digital. I have the Epson Perfection 4990 which, of course, is now discontinued. The Epson website tells me the V700 is the equivalent replacement. Well, the V700 costs $600 and I sure would hesitate to spend that much. I was looking at the V600 which costs $200 and the description sounds a lot like my 4990 (which cost $400 new but only $300 when I bought it from the Epson scratch-and-dent store).

Rusty, the scanner does pretty good with prints. However, the attachment for scanning slides/film is limited as to the size of slots for slides/film. So, it would be a good idea to check that the film & attachment are compatible by scanning film the first thing after buying, if there is no way to check before.

here's a little info:
