    Vintage photos

    Hi, If this needs to be in a different area please let me know. But I found at a auction a book of older photos taken around the 40's. the problem is they are around 2 inches/thumbnail..... any idea on how to get prints from these? They are awsome photos taken in the Smokies in the 1940's. My husband sugested to take photos with my camera and then get printed, yes I do photography but this type of editing is something I've never done. These photos were done by a professional I think, there are 116 photos

    You can photo copy them though the process does have some pitfalls. For best results, the image you are photographing needs to be perfectly flat, the camera needs to be parallel with the image, and you need well balanced lighting. The best bet would be to locate a copy stand.

    Yea, I tried that after I posted, wasn't flat so didnt do very good. but I think it will work with a little more figuring... I wish I knew the photographer cause they are really great photos, this computer does't do them justce... but there is three photos with people in it.

    Could you scan them on a flat-bed scanner?

    Restoring old worn photo is a troublesome thing.

    You can use clarity, in Photoshop Lightroom and some softening.
