Photo repair

I occasionally like to play around editing old photos. I don't have Photoshop, Lightroom or any of those expenive editing programs, I use a simple program called PhotoScape, which is free for non-commercial users, and is downloaded from the internet.

 

Today, my wife received a USB drive with nearly 500 old family photos, scanned copies of prints. Some were in pretty poor condition. Here are before and after images of two photos I played around wih this afternoon.

I'll download it, but my plate runneth over with projects at the moment. I'll be happy when this COVID lockdown is over and I can leave the house. Staying home is just letting me find more and more projects to do. Today I picked up a bar-b-que someone put out on the footpath. I hope to be able to replace the gas manifold in my old bar-b-que. If that fails, at least I've got a good frame for a trolley.

That's a pretty good job you've done there, in linux there are any number of photo shop stuff, I use GIMP which is simply amazing, but is a steep learning curve. There are lots of simple easy to use photo manipulation software, free and some are extremely sophisticated.

I think I've mentioned this before, but I still use a Photo-editing and Imaging programme that came with my very first computer setup - Windows 98 in Oct 1998.

That programme is ULead iPhoto Express, and it is a great little programme that was put together by Canon - but which is now 100% obsolete, as Canon sold ULead iPhoto Express to Corel, about 2007, who promptly modified it to iPhoto Express Plus 4, then binned it, after they extracted a lot of its useful features, and tried to integrate them into Corel Draw. But Corel Draw is not a patch on iPhoto Express.

 

And it appears I'm not the only one who thinks it truly was/still is, the best imaging programme around.
