This one took a LOT of work. Not helped by a very inopportune Photoshop crash 🙁

Before and After of Olde Photo

A lot of work with Adobe Photoshop CS4 to get the left version to the right version – all from an original that is 3 ¼ x 2 ½ inches.

After scanning the photos it was lots of time with the tools available in Photoshop to Clone, Heal and Patch the damage.
