WATERMARK REMOVAL

ORIGINAL PHOTO (gloss finish)
Taken from the internet, this is a high-quality scan of the original photo. However, besides a few mild, easily repaired cracks, the image features very distracting "watermarks" which are not actually on the original photo.

PROCESSED PHOTO
The watermarks have been removed and the aged color has been returned to its original black and white. In this case, it was chosen to leave the autograph but it could have easily been removed.

ORIGINAL PHOTO (gloss finish)
Another high-quality scan with watermarks like the above photo.
However the original photo has more tear and stain damage.

PROCESSED PHOTO
In this case, it was chosen to leave some of the damage to maintain a vintage look.
