In this video, I show how I colour correct and fix an old photo removing any damage that was on the negative. I use the colour and contrast tools in Photoshop, but the most of the work is done by the clone stamp tool.
The trick is to use a very small clone brush and to work the areas sympathetically, trying to replace missing colour with similar nearby tones. It takes practice and is fiddly work, but the clone tool can fix 99% of photo damage.
The process took just over fifteen minutes to complete and is compressed down in order not to bore you.

The latest firmware for the Roland GR-55 guitar synthesiser was launched in June 2012 and it features a number of new patches added to the existing list. Of course, the majority of these patches stink up the place like month-old blue cheese stored behind the radiator but there might be something here to interest you.
I know that I’m not the greatest guitar player in the world and have never claimed to be, so any snarky comments about my playing will be deleted and you will be blocked. If you want to be a YouTube arsehole, go do it on someone else’s channel. OK?
Seeing as my previous patch demonstrations have been popular, I thought I should pull my finger out and do another EPIC and DULL demonstration of all the 200 preset noises inside the most excellent Roland VG-99 guitar processor.
The latest version of Microsoft’s Windows 8 Release Preview has been made available and seeing as I’ve covered it before, I thought I’d do it ALL OVER AGAIN, just to see if there are any improvements to the Windows 8 OS.
