For me to practice my Photoshop skills of digital repair

So here's your chance to send me a high resolution scan of your Aviation photos that have seen better times... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif They don't need to be of aircraft, it can be anything related and from any era or service... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm thinking of a career change and want to see if my hobby will be the base of a new and hopefully more rewarding way of life... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Regards

Archie

I don't know if or how much you could use but many WWII era films that do have less than top
shape segments are on sale for heavy discounts. Right at the top I can think of is the Victory
At Sea series that contains film and photos of varying quality from most every side and theatre
of the war. All is further degraded in the process of formatting to DVD, chance to enhance
right there! But really, even clips from Italian warships, Japan, and Russian planes in
action. 26 full length episodes ran me all of $5.50 in a WalMart bargain bin! And that is
only one of many such extremely affordable sources!

Do you have TV-in capture capability in your videocard or a seperate card or USB device?
Almost every one of those devices allows screen shots.

M_Gunz: Really at the moment i'm offering to restore anyones damaged family War photo's for nothing, just to hone my skills. Just let me have a scan and I will try to put it right...

Here's another...
