Bring Your Vintage Photos Back to Life
We all own envelopes, albums, or even boxes of photos, negatives or slides from the even before 1900, all the way through the 40s, the 60s, the 80s, and in between! Often these photos have been the victims of poor storage, fading, color shift, stains, tears, scratches, dust, and the simple aging process. In this self-paced, video-based course, I'll walk you through the techniques for restoring your vintage photos to their former glory - and beyond!
Our Goal: Restore the Magic
Some of my most precious personal memories are from Christmas and other holidays when I was little, as well as family vacations. Since I was born in the 70s, I have some truly awesome examples of 70s clothing. My parents have great examples of photos from the 60s, and I've inherited lots of 30s, 40s, and 50s black and whites, as well as some great sepia-tone photos from the turn of the century. I LOVE these pictures. They're part of me, because they're my family. My people. I recognize myself in their features, and I'm so grateful for the connection these photos provide for me. I'm especially excited for this particular class, because I am looking forward to sharing the techniques that I've used to restore my precious vintage photographs to their former glory, and beyond! Join me in class as we swap stories, share gorgeous photos and memories, and work to bring the lives of our ancestors back into focus with Photoshop!
You can use either Photoshop Elements 13-14, OR Photoshop CC for class.
What To Expect in Class
This video-based course focuses on photo restoration - things you can do to bring older photos back to life, losing some of the grainy, faded appearance. You'll learn the basic photo editing workflow I use for older photos, plus extra techniques to take them to the next level! You'll take photos through simple transformations that will have you (and your loved ones) saying WOW! You'll love what an incredible difference you can make to your own precious photos. There's nothing like the rush! I swear!
