Photo Restoration: old slides
And now for something completely different: a photo restoration of an old colour slide file from my youth. The boys in the photo are myself and my best friend Tim. I presume the photo was taken by my father.
In fact the slide - now almost 40 years old, is in remarkable shape. The scan itself was done by a cheapy machine, so better results could be obtained with a higher quality machine.
