Revisiting old photos

Milford Sound - Touching Up Old Photos, Revisiting Old Photos

I noticed that I had a lot of photos from 2010/2011 which I had backed up but very few were every touched up or had much editing done on them. There were 2 reasons for this; firstly I didn’t have very good editing software back then and secondly when tools I did have, were limited in what they could do.

Now with better software and better understanding of what can be done, old photos can be re-edited and re-touched. Therefore you can  bring life into what was once a throwaway shot.

One basic example is shown below. This photo was of Milford Sound in New Zealand, nice reflections and scene but not much else. But by using a few tools in Photoshop you can see what can be achieved.

By going back over your old photos you may find photos which could be edited back into life.
