Pretty girls

That title ought to get me more readers.

Gail’s sister sent us a packet of old family photos, and I’ve been having fun scanning and restoring them.  Here’s my current favorite:

I continue to be amazed at the power of Photoshop and my limited but growing skills.  Here is one of the worst of the old photos:

Ten minutes of computer work, and I ended up with this:

The more of them I do, the better I get.

Here’s an important note–Gail’s mother was very good about labeling pictures with dates, places and names.  The only thing worse than finding a photo with a bunch of people you don’t recognize is to find one labeled “All the gang, yesterday.”

I’m really enjoying this project, and the practice makes me better. Have any old photos you’d like to preserve?  Let’s talk.
