In over 100,000 words and 500 illustrations (including 80 task-oriented "how-to's") I cover digital photo restoration from soup to nuts.

I tell you what kind of computer gear you need (less than you probably thought; you may already have everything you need and don't know it), what software to use, and how to scan your photos into the computer for best results. Next, in six information-packed chapters, I show you amazing techniques for turning hopeless-looking disaster cases into fine photographs. Then I teach you how to print them out to their best effect and preserve your finished restoration so your descendents can enjoy it.

Here's the front matter from DIGITAL RESTORATION: Start to Finish. The Table of Contents shows just how complete my treatment of the subject is. The Preface will tell you what's new in this edition.

Why did I write DIGITAL RESTORATION From Start to Finish? I just love restoring photos, and I want to pass on my enjoyment and knowledge to as many people as possible. Read my Introduction from the book and you'll see where I'm coming from.
