Not a lot of pixels to work with there, Jood. Can you post the originals full size out to a server, like Photobucket or Google blogger or whatever, and then insert them here using the URL of the image so someone can pick up a better repro to play with?

p.s. I like Auntie Kate!

I will try again Janet - the person who sent them to me only sent them small, and I tried photo bucket who didn't want anything to do with them. Let me have another go.

I saved them both as gif - which I'd forgotten to do before - but still am getting error messages. Is there another site I can open them in beside Photobucket?

Shouldn't you be in bed? lol

I don't know if anyone else will come along, but if not I will have a go, as getting rid of folds and scraches is the only thing I've learned to so successfully on photobucket!! Don't know if you saw this one?

http://www.genealogistsforum.co.uk/F...ad.php?t=15173

which sadly isn't my best effort.

However, it does take me a VERY, VERY LONG TIME (probably because I don't use the right methods to do the work!!) if the damage goes through an important part like their face etc, so perhaps you could tell me which one you want first! (I might run out of steam after one lol!!)

*hopes someone else gets here first* lol

I'm not in a desperate hurry Merry - soon the upoverers will be awake, so we will see what happens.

Yes, I saw the pics - they are quite good.

I've just zoomed in to the last image on your list in Photoshop, but still waaay too pixilated for me to do much, sorry.

it needs to be saved at at least 300dpi - 600dpi is better.

I don't know whether the fact that one one I chose is a .gif makes any difference. I'm no expert!
