Turning back the clock - Part 1

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a large collection of large format slides mounted in glass mounts. They measure 2.5x2.5 inches so there's a lot of detail in them, and the photographer did a nice job framing most of the shots.

That's the good news. The bad news is they were mounted with fingerprints and dust on them, and have since also picked up mold/mildew spots. I am scanning them after I take them out of the glass mounts and physically cleaning them as well as I can with lint-free cloths and compressed air, but the spots are there to stay. I can get most of them out in Photoshop with the Healing Tool and Color Replacement Tool, but it takes a lot of time. Looking at the pile of slides I have to do it might just be easier to rebuild the Fair and take new pictures.

Great job as usual, Bill.

Makes me curious about your setup - do you use a pen/tablet for cleanup work?

Don't you mean all those EARS at Disney?
