Adobe Photoshop Intensive: Restoration of Old and Damaged Photographs
with Jane Conner-ziser
November 4 - November 6, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


Old photographs are a treasure trove of family traditions, memories, and history—and when restored, they can also become beautiful works of art. First and foremost, the restoration process requires realistic estimates and well-thought-out plans that take into account available time and technology. Under the guidance of Jane Conner-Ziser, a specialist with 30 years' experience, participants delve into their own projects and learn to restore photographs in both color and black-and-white.

Together we explore the best and most efficient techniques for removing image damage caused by a variety of phenomena: dust spots, stains, cracks, and missing pieces. We experiment with the cloning and healing tools that allow you to repair a face without painting over it. We learn how to restore faded color by utilizing individual channel adjustments and how to finish the color work when the original color condition can't be achieved. Solutions for matching details to the original image, as well as how to tone and prepare the image for print, are reviewed. Finally, we master the skills needed to hand-color a black-and-white image and turn it into a beautiful work of art.

Jane is an expert in restoring old or damaged photos—and she can put you on a path to becoming one as well!
