    Hi. I work with adobe photoshop elements, along with cs2. I could give it a try for you, although, I have never tried to fix an old picture. I would not mind at all to try and help.

    You can email the pic to me @ Hampton_housewife@yahoo.com if you would like.

    Hey Misty.

    Got your email. I will work on the photos first chance i get tmrw (as its 11pm here now )
    The picture of you should be no problem (to bring down the brightness)

    If you can just tell me what you would like done to the one of you and your mom?
    I can do my best to colour correct it, But i probably wont be able to do too much with the yellow splotches that are on it.

    I'll do my best though

    Its not its not in that bad of shape, but the Yellow line at the bottom of the picture (that cuts through your moms Chin and nick, that can't be fixed as there is no data (no picture information there) to save.
    But i will for sure do what i can, and I can FOR SURE make it atleast 10% better.
    I promise that

    Hi, I just emailed you them. I was wondering if you ever thought of making the one with your mother black and white? It may actually look alot better. If you would like to try that let me know, and I can do that. Hope they helped.

    Thanks Jeanette

    The hardest part was getting the Yellow splotches off of the first photo. It was hard, because if i removed too many of them it looked like i Had just panted the wall haha.
    Here is a break down of what I did if anyone who uses photoshop is interested.

    For both of them I brought up the resolution and made the size bigger, so she should be able to print htem a bit better.

    For the one of her and her mom I straightened it (as it was scanned on a bit of an angle)
    I tried my best to smooth out the yellow splotches that were all over it. (Clone Stamp Tool)
    I turned down all the bright reds and yellows so it looks more true to real colours.
    I sharpened it up a bit to bring back some details in their faces.
    And fixed up that yellow line at the bottom as best I could

    For the one of just her,
    I fixed her face and the whole picture so it wasnt' so bright,
    brought down the reds' a bit to get your skin colour back to normal.
    Got rid of all the white and black spots that older photos get
    and Blurred the background a bit so it wasn't so grainy and sandy looking.

    Not sure if anyone cares, but just incase thats pretty much all i did.
