G'day Viewer!

- One of my main Flickr interests is restoring scans of original photos & photo postcards (mostly from the past) that often have poor image quality due to age factors.

- For slide, print & film scanning I have been using a Canon Canoscan 8800F scanner (mostly at high resolutions).

- Once the originals have been digitized, the software I use A LOT for any restoration or post-editing work is Adobe Photoshop CS Windows.

- *2020 Update* - I have begun using the online colorization & enhancement tools courtesy of the MyHeritage In Color website to colorize/enhance some historic images that are suited to the process. Only about 30% tested so far give good enough results to upload to Flickr - but some are truly amazing!

- I hope you enjoy whatever images of mine you choose to view, as much as I have enjoyed restoring them to a reasonable state!

Thank you for sharing your photos with us, it is a privilege to be able to view your pictures and reading the captions with them, seeing the restored historical photo's would have to be my personal favourites.
