Original hand colored photo.

A 2nd original photo was cut up for a collage. I converted to a b+w image & then added color using a smart color filter

Combining the two images in photoshop using the uniform from the first image and the face from the second image

Original 100 year old photo from a family collage.

The hardest part of color restoration is creating realistic flesh tones. After converting to a black+white image I apply photoshop's smart color filter. This gets me close. The rest of the work is hand painted in photoshop and hand cloned.

Faded & Torn Black+White Print Circa 1958

My first photoshop restoration done manually using the cloning tool. 1997.
