    What are you trying to do to it, exactly?

    I want to print and display. I just attached a few of the photos in the second post that I want to use.

    I thought of framing them, with a central bigger one- I actually like the last one in the second post (Table Mountain with my grandfather) as the centre one- perhaps 30-40 cm wide, and then some smaller ones around that one. Black frames are quite fashionable in South Africa now.

    For the photos that I currently take, I take them in RAW and am quite familiar with editing in PS RAW as well as PS itself. These ones are a bit more difficult, as I want to keep the vintage look, but "retouch" some of them somewhat. Perhaps sharpen, look at contrast, etc.
