Some recent unfortunately events have led to me inheriting many old family photos, some dating back to before World War II. Many of these photos are damaged, and I'm slowly digitizing them and restoring them when possible. In this video, I'll be using channels to get donor information to repair a light damage on an image. I'll then continue the repair by adding in some color where it's needed.
