Spent a lot of time over the past two days scanning in some old photos that my Grandma has left me and trying to touch some of them up. I’m not good at photo editing but ye olde “Auto Adjust” feature has made a lot of these pictures look better. For a few of them they looked 100% better just from being scanned (xsane also has an auto-adjust feature).
Sadly I look nowhere near this good nowadays. :)
