Photo Darkroom®

Recovering Old Faded Photos the Easy Way

Go find your most faded old photos. The first tool in the FTM 2017 Photo Darkroom series is the Faded Photo Repair Tool. It does just one thing as its name implies, but does it extraordinarily well. It takes faded old black and white photos and makes them look like the day they were first printed. All with just a few clicks of three repair tools of differing intensity.

If you're the kind that likes to tinker around a bit, drop down the Advanced Settings to sharpen up your photos with a few final adjustments using the sliders. The photo above went from "Before" to "After" with four clicks of the Intensive Repair tool, one click of the Light Repair one and a drag of the sharpness slider. And yes, it really is as easy as that.
