Dear Photoshop Friend,

If you're reading this, you probably have some images or photos that you would like to restore or fix up so that they look more like the original.  Many of us have precious photos of ancestors where the images could be 100 years old or more.  The problem is; how on earth can we make bring them back to life and make them look more like the original images?

Well, if you have Photoshop, you know that it has the ability to do it...but do you?  Are you still looking at an image and not knowing where to start on making it look A LOT better?  These are surely important images that you would like to repair and restore. 

I'm here to tell you that, YES you can be restoring your photos in less than 2 hours with Photoshop, whether they just need general touchup's, enhancements or are badly damaged.  Keep reading to find out how you can make your treasured, yet much less than perfect images look drastically improved by using Adobe Photoshop..

▪  I have trained 10,000's of Photoshop user's worldwide with my online Photoshop tutorials, Photoshop websites and supplemental training products with great customer service and lots of testimonials.

  I have been to 3 PhotoshopWorld Conferences and am a member of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals).  I've been featured on top tutorials websites and others including

  I am an Adobe Certified Expert for Photoshop CS2. 

▪  I am also a professional graphic designer who leads by example and has spent 1,000's of hours in Photoshop- it's what I do. 

I know what it's like to want to be able to see the best original image possible because I remember recently looking through my grandmother's pictures of when she was a teenager.  And I remember noting the image quality and I know that I could improve each and every one of the photos.

Because of the imaging technology available in the early 1900's added with the passage of time, photographs will get cracked, spotted, severely faded and worse.  No doubt you are a likely sufferer of such a pandemic.  There's nothing like the satisfaction of repairing an image for an old loved one and seeing the look on their face.

My mother came to me for help with restoring the photos of my grandparents because she knows I am an expert at Photoshop.  But instead of just showing one person how to do it, I realized that this is a big subject out there because there are millions of people who want to restore old photographs without having to pay an expensive photo restoration service (any, who by the way use Photoshop).

Because of this concern of not only me wanting to see my best possible ancestor photographs, but many people in the U.S. and around the world wanting to restore old photos (or even just recent ones that need adjusting) specifically with Photoshop, I decided to create a training program to help them (you!) take advantage of Photoshop's powerful tools and techniques to empower image restoration and bring damaged images back to life.

"...I have been learning to restore old family photos to go with my genealogy research. Your lessons have been amazing! By learning to use the Lasso, and other selection tools properly, as well as the Healing brush, Layer Effects and Masking, I am able to bring my ancestors back to “life” through their photographs to preserve them for generations to come.  I would have never believed that I could have done anything like this in Photoshop- never thought I was smart enough! You have taught me well, and I will always draw upon that knowledge as I get better and better!!!...."

...This is my second entry, as you see, I am continuing to restore and improve damaged and faded photographs. Some that are over 100 years old now look like they were made yesterday! I cannot tell you how much it means to me to see the faces come alive, and only through your wonderful lessons and teaching was I able to do it.
Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart!"     -Wendy Madison

Learning Photoshop is fun

It's not as hard as you think to restore old or damaged images when you have a powerful tool such as Adobe Photoshop CS AND when you have the proper knowledge to take advantage of the tools to be able to (depending on the image) create entire fix-up's within minutes (sometimes seconds!).  Part of the problem is that I didn't see many options out there on the market for actually learning photo restoration with Photoshop.

Because I inherently know how to use Photoshop's tools as a Photoshop Certified Expert (and because the pictures my mom did have on hand of our family history weren't damaged 'enough') I decided to collect photos from students whose images REALLY needed some work done on them.  I figured, this way I would allow you to get an entire look at the spectrum of techniques and tools to use in Photoshop (because certain images need it) in order to restore a 'desperately seeking susan' photo.

So, I created my Image Restoration & Curves Photoshop training DVD.  It's got 2 hours of Photoshop video tutorials training on images from the 'worst of the worst' portraits to ones that just need localized adjustments (such as an underexposed wedding couples).

With this Image Restoration Photoshop video training you'll be able to restore your damaged or 'lacking' images using practically every Photoshop technique in the book from basic to advanced (healing brush to custom curves color channels) in less than 2 hours. 

"I was not going to get into the restoration portion of the photo biz but after taking the tutorial I had the opportunity to work on some friend's photos and they were astounded with what I could do.  I have since decided to create a section on my website for this service.  Why pass up the chance to make more money when it is so simple after following to tutorials?  Thanks Orion, some of the best money I have spent since going into business for myself."

-Shawn Traman, Photographer (and Photo Restorer)

Whether you want to restore images on your own OR restore images for other people (and earn an income from it) this training is guaranteed to help get you there and FAST.  There is no need to let the level of photo damage hold you in fear in thinking, '''how can I even start restoring this image?'''.

Spend your time restoring photos with Photoshop with this training instead of spending your time fooling around with the tools or thinking how to go effectively about it.  Relax...the expert is here; I'm in the house to help you repair just about ANY image you may have... 

Black & White Faded Restoration

To work on a really grayed out image like this, your normal auto correction options are just not enough.

Make a small marquee selection an area which represents (or should represent) a fair amount of contrast.

Now go to your pop up menu and choose Curves.

Now click on Options to get to the super duper powered auto color correction dialog box.

Since you made a selection, the rest of the adjustment layer is masked so therefore, not visible.

You will notice automatically an increase in the contrast. When working on images that are black and white but scanned in RGB mode, then you can use Enhance per channel contrast to give a little more of an edginess than what would normally be there in grayscale mode.  This is enhancing the contrast independently in each of the channels to result in a more vibrant effect. Press OK for now and now choose a brush tool.

Since you made a selection first the adjustment only applied to that selected area, but it is still there, it’s just masked. To reveal the same adjustment to apply to other parts of the image (layer beneath) use your brush


with white as the foreground color to paint 'in' the adjustment layer mask to areas that you want to be affected by the adjustment.


Go ahead and paint in some more of the adjustment layer with the white brush to reveal the adjustment layer.

Now you can go ahead and keep working on lightening areas that are too dark because of the increase in contrast. To do that, grab a black brush to go over areas that are too dark because of the adjustment (on the adjustment layer mask) to hide the effect of the adjustment and bring back the original ‘lighter’ version of the dark areas which were OK with the original.

You can also switch to darker shades of grey to hide most of the adjustment layer effect right above that point (after you have brought the image visible under a white brush to reveal the adjustment).

The fastest way when you’re on the adjustment layer mask to have it apply to the entire layer beneath and visibly is to Alt Backspace or go to Edit: Fill and then choose foreground or background (depending which one you have as white).

You can carefully bring back the detail to darkened areas once again, by using the brush on a dark gray or black to hide the adjustment layer’s high contrast effect and bring back the original lightness to darker areas to help balance the image out.

Remember that pure black will completely hide any of the adjustment using the brush. Darker shades of gray will mostly hide it and whiter will reveal more of the adjustment. I teach this concept extensively in my Basic Photoshop training.


It’s important to balance out the image here so that the dresses or dark dark’s are not too dark. But the image definitely needed the correction we did.


Here is a rubylith view ( \ ) of the areas that I’ve masked on the adjustment layer which will allow the original pixels below to show through, creating the lighter effect on the darker areas.

Here is the before and after of what I’ve done so far.

You can make some more improvements to it by creating a new Curves adjustment layer.

If the areas that are supposed to be white are still a little to grey or washed out you can increased their contrast (pretty much alone) by using the method I teach in the photo restoration video training of alt clicking on an area to get your source point on the curves graph and either entering the output curve of the area that you want it to be or nudging it up a little.

Here I’ve created two different source points to increase the contrast of the whites.

....that was a little sample of some of the training you can expect

By the way, almost any image (99.8%) can get an improvement in Photoshop with the right tools and user (you).  Many images you thought that would have no hope, you will be proud to give it back to that special loved one in it's original condition ;)

In this Photo Restoration Photoshop training I focus specifically on image enhancement and photo restoration techniques using Adobe Photoshop CS' powerful tools and exploring several real-world practical examples step by step in real-time so you'll be able to understand how to use the tools (and in which circumstances) to start restoring immediately with more results than you've ever seen before.  All you need is a dvd player and Photoshop 7 or CS. 

Photo Restoration Secrets

Here are a few benefits that you will learn with the TutorialKey: Image Restoration & Curves DVD:

●  Knowing what Photoshop tools to use (and HOW to use them for each circumstance) - Photoshop has many tools but there are a few there are specifically used and that you MUST work on mastering to really be effective in restoring images.  I teach you all of the different tools including which ways to use them so you don't waste hours of your time on a single image.

●  How to make localized or custom adjustments - I use several modern-day wedding photographs in these examples.  You will learn how to make up for a photograph where there wasn't a flash (for example) and correcting underexposure (areas that are darker than they should be).  You will be able to create the effect of a fill flash and highlight just the focal point (such as the wedding couple) so it is properly exposed and lit without affecting the rest of the background.  A MUST FOR ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS.

●  Understand & finally know how to use Curves adjustment effectively - Yes, there is a purpose for Curves and it is a powerful tool in your photo restoration arsenal.  It has the power to do the most restoration so now you don't have to leave it alone.  Learn how to fix images (radically improve them) with Photoshop curves and even use it for balancing or increasing contrast of a specific color channel.

●  Restore massively damaged images - Scratches, rips, tears, blotches, fading....Understand how to use the different nuances of the many tools, starting out with the most obvious one to make the most headway in repairing any image.

●  Fix 'off color' photos - Learn several different ways to not only fix color but balance color differences within the same image using layer masks on different adjustment layers.  I will also teach you how to use adjustment layer masks with the brush tool & color palette to hide where you don't want your adjustment to show and where you want to retain the improvement (such as an increase in contrast).

●  Match Color & Shadow/Highlight tool - Of course I cover these (and also Levels and the Histogram) so you understand what they do and know how to use them.

●  Understand how to use Levels & Histogram - so you can analyze and interpret the luminance of any image and where it will need adjustments.

●  Save time & have maximum flexibility with adjustment layers - Use adjustment layers effectively in image enhancement / restoration (from basic to advanced levels) so you can preserve the original pixels of the image and come back to make any change of the adjustment you want (instantly disposable too) without having to back in history and start over.

....and much more with 2 hours of pure Image Restoration, enhancement & repair Photoshop tutorials training!  I don't just cover the basics (everyone knows the healing brush is there); I go into the advanced strategies of more Photoshop restoration tools, having a game plan, and combining tools and techniques to make the most of your image restoring time for the fastest, yet most "true to original" results.
