My Oma

My mom got a new photo slide scanner, so she has been on this kick on making digital files of all her old photo slides. She said she will have a memory stick full of them for me when we go out to Cali. She also scanned some old photos she wanted restored. I've taught my mom how to resize images in Photoshop. She called yesterday and said she had a couple of photos she needed my help on in touching up. She tried to use the tools in Photoshop but couldn't figure it out. This photograph is of my Oma, my mom's mom. It was taken some time in the 1930's when she was in her 20's. I think it's such a beautiful portrait of her.
I love Photoshop. Within an hour this was how much I was able to clean it up. CS5 has this cool "content-aware" tool when you marquee (highlight) a certain area, it fixes it like a magic wand. So cool! I still can see a few spots I'd like to fix. And then onto the other photos! :)
