If you're reading this,
probably have some images or photos that you would like to restore or
fix up so that they look more like the original. Many of us have
precious photos of ancestors where the images could be 100 years old or
more. The problem is; how on earth can we make bring them back to
life and make them look more like the original images?
Well, if you have Photoshop,
you know that it has the ability to do it...but do you? Are you
still looking at an image and not knowing where to start on making it
look A LOT better? These are surely important images that you
would like to repair and restore.
I'm here to tell you that,
YES you can be restoring your
photos in less than 2 hourswith Photoshop, whether they just need general touchup's, enhancements or are
badly damaged. Keep reading to find out how you can make your
treasured, yet much less than perfect images look drastically improved
by using Adobe Photoshop..
▪ I have trained
10,000's of Photoshop user's worldwide with my online Photoshop
tutorials, Photoshop websites and supplemental training products
with great customer service and lots of testimonials.
I have been to 3 PhotoshopWorld Conferences and am a member of NAPP
(National Association of Photoshop Professionals). I've been
featured on top tutorials websites and others including
I am an Adobe Certified Expert for Photoshop CS2.
I am also
a professional graphic designer who leads by example and
has spent 1,000's of hours in Photoshop- it's what I do.
I know what it's like to
want to be able to see the best original image possible because I
remember recently looking through my grandmother's pictures of when she
was a teenager. And I remember noting the image quality and I know
that I could improve each and every one of the photos.
Because of the imaging
technology available in the early 1900's added with the passage of time,
photographs will get cracked, spotted, severely faded and worse.
No doubt you are a likely sufferer of such a pandemic. There's
nothing like the satisfaction of repairing an image for an old loved one
and seeing the look on their face.
My mother came to me for
help with restoring the photos of my grandparents because she knows I am
an expert at Photoshop. But instead of just showing one person how
to do it, I realized that this is a big subject out there because there
are millions of people who want to restore old photographs without
having to pay an expensive photo restoration service (any, who by the
way use Photoshop).
Because of this concern of
not only me wanting to see my best possible ancestor photographs, but
many people in the U.S. and around the world wanting to
photos (or even just recent ones that need adjusting) specifically with
Photoshop, I decided to create a training program to help them (you!)
take advantage of Photoshop's powerful tools and techniques to empower
image restoration and bring damaged images back to life.
been learning to restore old family photos to go with my
genealogy research. Your lessons have been amazing!
By learning to use the Lasso, and other selection tools
properly, as well as the Healing brush, Layer Effects
and Masking, I am able to bring my ancestors back to
“life” through their photographs to preserve them for
generations to come. I would have never believed
that I could have done anything like this in Photoshop-
never thought I was smart enough! You have taught me
well, and I will always draw upon that knowledge as I
get better and better!!!...."
my second entry, as you see, I am continuing to restore
and improve damaged and faded photographs. Some that are
over 100 years old now look like they were made
yesterday! I cannot tell you how much it means to me to
see the faces come alive, and only through your
wonderful lessons and teaching was I able to do it.
Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart!"
It's not as hard as you think to restore old or
damaged images when you have a powerful tool such as Adobe
Photoshop CS AND when you have the proper knowledge to take
advantage of the tools to be able to (depending on the image)
create entire fix-up's within minutes (sometimes seconds!).
Part of the problem is that I didn't see many options out there
on the market for actually learning photo restoration with
Because I inherently know how to use Photoshop's
tools as a Photoshop Certified Expert (and because the pictures my
mom did have on hand of our family history weren't damaged 'enough')
I decided to collect photos from students whose images REALLY needed
some work done on them. I figured, this way I would allow you
to get an entire look at the spectrum of techniques and tools to use
in Photoshop (because certain images need it) in order to restore a
'desperately seeking susan' photo.
So, I created my Image Restoration & Curves
Photoshop training DVD. It's got 2 hours of Photoshop video
tutorials training on images from the 'worst of the worst' portraits
to ones that just need localized adjustments (such as an
underexposed wedding couples).
With this Image Restoration Photoshop video training
you'll be able to restore your damaged or 'lacking' images using
practically every Photoshop technique in the book from basic to
advanced (healing brush to custom curves color channels) in less
than 2 hours.
not going to get into the restoration portion of the
photo biz but after taking the tutorial I had the
opportunity to work on some friend's photos and they
were astounded with what I could do. I have since
decided to create a section on my website for this
service. Why pass up the chance to make more money
when it is so simple after following to tutorials?
Thanks Orion, some of the best money I have spent since
going into business for myself."
Whether you want to restore images on your own OR
restore images for other people (and earn an income from it) this
training is guaranteed to help get you there and FAST. There
is no need to let the level of photo damage hold you in fear in
thinking, '''how can I even start restoring this image?'''.
Spend your time restoring photos with
Photoshop with this training instead of spending your time fooling
around with the tools or thinking how to go effectively about it.
Relax...the expert is here; I'm in the house to help you repair just
about ANY image you may have...
Black & White Faded Restoration
To work on a really
grayed out image like this, your normal auto correction options are
just not enough.
Make a small marquee selection an area
which represents (or should represent) a fair amount of contrast.
Now go to your pop up menu and choose
Now click on Options to get to the super
duper powered auto color correction dialog box.
Since you made a selection, the rest
of the adjustment layer is masked so therefore, not visible.
You will notice automatically an increase in the contrast. When
working on images that are black and white but scanned in RGB mode,
then you can use Enhance per channel contrast to give a little more
of an edginess than what would normally be there in grayscale mode.
This is enhancing the contrast independently in each of the channels
to result in a more vibrant effect. Press OK for now and now choose
a brush tool.
Since you made a selection first the
adjustment only applied to that selected area, but it is still
there, it’s just masked. To reveal the same adjustment to apply to
other parts of the image (layer beneath) use your brush
with white as the foreground color to
paint 'in' the adjustment layer mask to areas that you want to be
affected by the adjustment.
Go ahead and paint in some more of
the adjustment layer with the white brush to reveal the adjustment
Now you can go ahead and keep working
on lightening areas that are too dark because of the increase in
contrast. To do that, grab a black brush to go over areas that are
too dark because of the adjustment (on the adjustment layer mask) to
hide the effect of the adjustment and bring back the original
‘lighter’ version of the dark areas which were OK with the original.
You can also switch to darker shades
of grey to hide most of the adjustment layer effect right above that
point (after you have brought the image visible under a white brush
to reveal the adjustment).
The fastest way when you’re on the
adjustment layer mask to have it apply to the entire layer beneath
and visibly is to Alt Backspace or go to Edit: Fill and then choose
foreground or background (depending which one you have as white).
You can carefully bring back the
detail to darkened areas once again, by using the brush on a dark
gray or black to hide the adjustment layer’s high contrast effect
and bring back the original lightness to darker areas to help
balance the image out.
Remember that pure black will
completely hide any of the adjustment using the brush. Darker shades
of gray will mostly hide it and whiter will reveal more of the
adjustment. I teach this concept extensively in my
It’s important to balance out the
image here so that the dresses or dark dark’s are not too dark. But
the image definitely needed the correction we did.
Here is a rubylith view ( \ ) of the
areas that I’ve masked on the adjustment layer which will allow the
original pixels below to show through, creating the lighter effect
on the darker areas.
Here is the before and after of what
I’ve done so far.
You can make some more improvements
to it by creating a new Curves adjustment layer.
If the areas that are supposed to be
white are still a little to grey or washed out you can increased
their contrast (pretty much alone) by using the method I teach in
the photo restoration video training of alt clicking
on an area to get your source point on the curves graph and either
entering the output curve of the area that you want it to be or
nudging it up a little.
Here I’ve created two different
source points to increase the contrast of the whites.
....that was a little
sample of some of the training you can expect
By the way, almost any image (99.8%) can get an
improvement in Photoshop with the right tools and user (you).
Many images you thought that would have no hope, you will be proud
to give it back to that special loved one in it's original condition
In this Photo Restoration Photoshop training I focus
specifically on image enhancement and photo restoration techniques
using Adobe Photoshop CS' powerful tools and exploring several
real-world practical examples step by step in real-time so you'll be
able to understand how to use the tools (and in which circumstances)
to start restoring immediately with more results than you've ever
seen before. All you need is a dvd player and Photoshop 7 or
Here are a
few benefits that you will learn with the TutorialKey: Image
Restoration & Curves DVD:
what Photoshop tools
to use (and HOW to use them for each circumstance) - Photoshop has many
tools but there are a few there are specifically used and that you MUST work on
mastering to really be effective in restoring images. I teach you all of
the different tools including which ways to use them so you don't waste
hours of your time on a single image.
● How to make
localized or custom adjustments - I use several modern-day wedding
photographs in these examples. You will learn how to make up for a
photograph where there wasn't a flash (for example) and correcting underexposure
(areas that are darker than they should be). You will be able to create
the effect of a fill flash and highlight just the focal point (such as the
wedding couple) so it is properly exposed and lit without affecting the
rest of the background. A MUST
FOR ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS.
● Understand & finally know how to use
Curves adjustment effectively - Yes, there is a purpose for Curves
and it is a powerful tool in your photo restoration arsenal. It has the
power to do the most restoration so now you don't have to leave it alone.
Learn how to fix images (radically improve them) with Photoshop curves
and even use it for balancing or increasing contrast of a specific color
● Restore massively damaged
images - Scratches, rips, tears, blotches, fading....Understand how to use the
different nuances of the many tools, starting out with the most obvious one to
make the most headway in repairing any image.
● Fix 'off color' photos -
Learn several different ways to not only fix color but balance color differences
within the same image using layer masks on different adjustment layers. I
will also teach you how to use adjustment layer masks with the brush tool
& color palette to hide where you don't want your adjustment to show and where
you want to retain the improvement (such as an increase in contrast).
● Match Color &
Shadow/Highlight tool - Of course I cover these (and also Levels and the
Histogram) so you understand what they do and know how to use them.
● Understand how to use
Levels & Histogram - so you can analyze and interpret the luminance of any image
and where it will need adjustments.
● Save time & have maximum
flexibility with adjustment layers - Use adjustment layers effectively in image
enhancement / restoration (from basic to advanced levels) so you can preserve
the original pixels of the image and come back to make any change of the
adjustment you want (instantly disposable too) without having to back in history
and start over.

tutorials training! I don't just cover the basics (everyone knows the
healing brush is there); I go into the advanced strategies of more Photoshop
having a game plan, and combining tools and techniques to make the most of your
image restoring time for the fastest, yet most "true to original"
“in the past I would
spend hours trying to fix pics, I just fixed this one in 10 minutes
by watching your (Photoshop) CS (Bonus) cd.” --john kline
In this Photoshop restoration training you are going to
receive everything I cover in my Basic Photoshop training (no
restoration * the tools) and MUCH
more because I focus specifically on Image
restoration and photo enhancement. I cover many different
practical examples of images on different levels of neediness without
rushing through them so you get the full range (& treatment) of
understanding the Photoshop workflow of what tools to use and how to use
Good photo restoration does
take time if you have heavily damaged images but I show you how to make
the best use of that time to make it as minimal as possible WITH the
fastest and most effective results possible. I give you the tools
you need to restore any of your (damaged or lacking) images. Once
you watch these Photoshop video tutorials you'll be able to immediately
start using the different Photoshop tools to repair photos and GET
Restoring one important
photo to you can absolutely be worth the small investment. But the
skills you gain, will allow you to not only be more diverse as a
Photoshop user but allow you to restore any of your (or your client's)
photos to a much faster and more professional degree.

investment of $24.95 you can have this intermediate-advanced Image
Restoration & Curves DVD training.

fair price considering the amount of lifelong digital imaging skills you

tremendous self-satisfaction and gift-giving to your loved ones by
restoring the memories of who they were and are.
