I have two baby pictures that are in disrepair. One is my hospital baby picture. At some point it must have been in a stack with other pictures and writing from my brother's first grade picture rubbed off onto it. There are other things to fix on the picture, but I focused on the writing in this example. Originals are on the left. Fixes are on the right.
The other picture is a baby picture that has a lot of damage. I focused on the baby, not the background. These are my first attempts, so for that I think I did pretty well.
