Digital artist Michelle Spalding occasionally accepts requests to restore damaged family photos. She uses Photoshop to restore photos and says she likes the challenge.
“Most are precious in one way or another to the client, and many times it’s the only photo someone has of a beloved or lost relative,” says the artist.
“I think it’s important to take one’s time when restoring such photographs. It’s easy to use shortcuts, but the best results come from meticulous care.”
Here are 10 photos that Spalding worked on.
