You need to scan at a higher resolution

This is scanned at 200 and just enlarging it does absolutely nothing.

We enlarge and zoom in when we restore.



200 is not bad but could be better

Not sure what you mean about matching the background so I'll leave that for someone else
I understand what's required now (after geniebug's later post) but sorry, that's too difficult for me!

I had a little go with your unknown soldier, but couldn't do much with his face because of the pixilation.

When I said unknown soldier - he's in the family but I'm not sure which one he belongs to lol

Thanks Merry, it's a lot better than it was.
