Scratched & Damaged Transparency correction


Active Member
After some great advice on another topic on here I have learnt how to enhance and alter colours of old 35mm slide transparencies, I have now come across a few that are dmaged or baldy scratched beyond my limited capabilities, Im fairly confident on using basic cloning and brushing of areas, to remove some flaws, but in particular this one is damaged around the face area, is there any tool or process that can make this a little better, I can manage marks on the white sign and headstones etc etc, but I wondered if any of you Guru's have any suggestions how to make the facial area better.....
