This picture of my dad, and his big brother was taken in India, about 1936, it’s in a pretty poor state, and quite brittle so I had to be careful not to break anymore off!
Using areas that were still in good shape, I selected an area, copied it and then pasted it to the blank areas, some of the lightly scratched bit, you can just blur or push, the bigger scratches I had to paste over. I’ve enlarged the next picture and you can see the areas, top left, that were copy pasted.
To repair the head, on the left hand side, I selected the same are of the head on the right hand side copied it, then flipped it, then juggled it into place
The finished photo
My sisters 55 years ago!
You can see how I copied one area on the left,
and pasted it over to the right.
