I have this photo of some family membersandit's owner has lost the originaldigital filewith no backup. The photo is faded and I offered to try to restore it somewhat. This fileis from a 300dpi scan. Skin tones on the edges aren't even correct otherwise they would allhave severe sunburn. I'm not having much luck with my limited skills and tools. If anyone can help restore this to more natural tones, that would be great. Thanks ahead of time......

Ok heres what Ive been able to do, sorry it's not big but photoshop resizes the shots, you may be able to copy this and resize again if you want to. It's not perfect but an improvement. Maybe someone else could do better.

They look yellow in mine. It's the best that I can do though. I've got the full size version, it's 1.4mb.

Here's a try, including some touchups where light was overly harsh. What do you think?

Color restoration is great but there seems a lot of new distortion...I appreciate the effort though. Over all, I'll give all attempts to my Brother-in-law for him to pick which to save or print. Thank you....
