I am only a very basic user of PhotoShop and have never used any plugins, but on behalf of a friend who is doing a big project of archiving an album of old photos, I was wondering if there are any plugins specifically related to
restoring old photographs.

Hi Chris,
As a fellow that has been restoring old photos for many years now, I can honestly tell you that there is absoulty no plug-in for restoration. I see that you are a new user to Photoshop. I don't know version you have but this program is the best thing to come along since sliced bread. However, it WILL require many hours of trial and error, trying this way and that way, will this work or won't it.
Tell your friend to just keep trying the tools and learn what can and cannot be done. Use his imagination, see in his mind what he wants the finished restoration to look like and then try and do it.
If there was such a plug-in, I assure you, I would pay whatever it cost to have it. :lol:

Hi Again,
Was just thinking here and remembered that I wrote a couple of tutorials for basic photo restoration a year or so ago. Here's the link. I hope it helps your friend.
