    These are some of the photos that I need advice on. All taken in the 20's and 30's of the previous century, I think:

    When you say editing, to what degree and (or) what is the final output? Print?

    Yes, I want to print and display. I just attached a few of the photos that I want to use.

    I thought of framing them, with a central bigger one- I actually like the last one (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.
