    Here is a picture taken of my father, his 4 sisters, and his parents in 1960. I tried my best to fix some of the problems but I was not given the original picture. Instead I was given a 96dpi scanned file. I think that what I did will look okay posted online, but would really suffer if I try to print it. I have a number of other pictures that I will also be working through and if I have any that I really like, I will work on getting the original picture so that I can do a higher resolution scan.

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Excellent repair job. Good crop, except you don't know it's Easter without the kid in the background

    Maybe you could play with the color a little, I'm not used to seeing that shade for old photos is all.

    doubletakes: To be honest, I never realized that it was an Easter picture. Doh! I will look into playing with the tint and seeing what I can do.

    SONYNUT: Only one word comes to mind and it is Wow! Looks great, even though I can't picture my grandmother in a red dress like that, even at Easter.

    You guys have given me some things to think about as I play with the hundred or so other pictures that I was sent. Thanks much!! Look for me to be posting more of them here in the future.

    I love it, except I would have left a bit more in the background. It kind of adds more story to the picture.

    SONYNUT did the coloring so that is a question for him. Thanks for the comments.
