|In DIGITAL RESTORATION From Start to Finish, I'll teach you how to restore faded and damaged photographic prints, films and glass plates, both B&W and color.
This new edition is current through Photoshop CC 2016. 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, 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 and index from DIGITAL RESTORATION: Start to Finish, 3rd ed. The Table of Contents and Index show 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.|
|DIGITAL RESTORATION: Start to Finish takes you step-by-step through many restoration techniques and solutions to common and vexing problems. Here are excerpts from 3 chapters and here are the complete Chapters 3 ("Software for Restoration" and 10 ("Examples") from the first edition. (All the material I removed from the first and second editions to make room for new content in the third edition is online. Nothing has been lost!)|
