How to Repair Old Photos [Tutorial]

I’m going to start posting links to photoshop and lightroom tutorials I come across that have helped me in hopes of helping anyone who stumbles across this page. I have no financial interest in any of them and receive nothing for my puny endorsement.

Here’s one I found originally on PetaPixel.com (highly recommended reading).

How to Repair Old Photos in Photoshop (4K)

Recently, I’ve found myself scanning old photos and needing to do some repair work. I’ve been a photoshop user since version 3 and now I’m up to v. 15 (CC 2014). I’m no guru, but know enough to get what I need done, at least that’s what I think until I run across tutorials like this one on How to Repair Old Photos by Howard Pinsky. This is the first tutorial I’ve watched from Howard. I learned a bit more about the healing brushes but what’s been the most helpful is the instruction on how to fix water stains on old B&W photos.
