Restore an old Family Record.
May 18, 2012

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to make this better, especially in regards to bringing out the script. I am doing this project for a friend who has an early 1800's Bible with some family records in it that she wants to preserve. The pages are very fragile and falling apart. I decided to scan the pieces with white paper on top so I would have a nice white background. I left the pieces separated so I could jump each piece to a separate layer and then put them back together using the Transform tool to move and rotate. I switched all the layers to Darken Mode so that the white background would not be a factor. I borrowed a piece from the right lower corner to fill in for the missing piece on the left. The processing thus far includes Clarity 100%, putting the pieces back together, healing and cloning, and adding a border with the same color and paper texture was added in layer styles.

Here is a small version of what I came up with so far but would appreciate advice on how to proceed.

Here is a small version of the original scan.
