Updating restoring very old photos
Hi all. I have checked out help and cant fathom out a decent method to fix photos which are well past their used by date see attached.
Note in the left side how the film has faded badly; I want to change the levels in this area, and preferably blend the borders with the adjacent area.
Am I correct in assuming:
1..use the selection lasso for area and create a new layer
2..apply levels to that layer only
3..merge the edges somehow??

Thanks for any advice,
Alistair.

RE: Updating restoring very old photos
Thanks a lot. Much to think about, and appreciate concise answer.
I tried the 'extra' python scripts too: Restore.py etc on some other photos but they did not seem to work well
