Restoring Old Photo
on Nov 23, 2015 at 11:52:59 pm

Hey,

I'm not the best with Photoshop, but I'm trying to restore this old family photo to at least descent condition. I've tried a ton of stuff that my photography friend have told me about, but it pretty much seems like a lost cause at this point. Any ideas at all????

The photo is so far out of focus the only thing you can do is to make it tiny (25% of current size), sharpen and fix it up the best you can, and use it for web. You're never going to recover the faces, so the only thing you can do is to make it appear sharp by shrinking it and letting imagination do the rest. Something like the attached (Note: you need to download the image to your computer to see it at actual size).
