I am trying to learn how to touch up and improve digital images. This is a photo of my Dad and his family from the Spring of 1956. Dad is the adorable one by the fireplace. Here is about 3 1/2 in this picture. Our boy Mason bears a STRONG resemblance to his Grandpa Ron. It is amazingly appropriate Mason has my Dad's middle name.
As you can see, there is quite a bit of "noise" in the original photo. (I think that is the technical term for speckles.) It just looks dusty and old.
It's not perfect, but I think I did achieve a good part of my goal!
