Ways to Edit or Repair Old Damaged Black and White Photos?

Recommended Posts

Depending on the image you may get reasonable results with the Inpainting Brush Tool, but in most cases you’ll probably need to resort to using the Clone Stamp Tool with a small, soft brush tip (at least for touching up, if not for the bulk of the work).

If the damage includes colour staining, then it is worth looking at the various channels to see if one shows less stain, and then using that one.

Any tricks or magic to get a blurred foto sharper?

 

Try the Clarity filter, or (for more control) the Unsharp Mask filter.

Thank you Alfred. Unsharp mask seems to be a walkable path. The key is, to use it very subtle, otherwise it does the opposite on "small (pixellike) pictures" with just few information.
