Repairing Vintage Photos in Your Image-Editing Software
1 of 5
Scan the photo into your computer and open it in your image editor.
This figure shows a vintage picture in Photoshop Elements. Scan a photo for restoration at a fairly high resolution to get all the color, light, and texture information possible, which gives you more to work with. When the image looks right, you can reduce the resolution for a more reasonably sized file.
