I used to do a lot of that, it was quite lucrative for a few years. Just scan them in a high res and save as TIFF files, since that's what you'll print from. Make a copy of the original scan and work on the copy, so if you screw up you'll still have the original scan.slickhare said:so my family dug up some old photos. and i offered to try to restore them w/ ps (some of them are from the 1950's). so i was wondering what are some good techniques for restoration?
