The photo of a couple below on the right had been washed in a pair of jeans and it was pulling off the backing. The owner was heartbroken as it was the only photo of her fa ther. I removed the wrinkled image off the card base by soaking it in water. It was stretched and glued down on new backing and copied. Using Photoshop I was able to remove at the customer’s request the stepmother and create a new portrait of her father.
