How to use Photoshop to restore an old, faded photo
I wrote/gif’d a short ‘how-to’ piece for the dailydot, featuring techniques I used to fix this photo.

Before photos existed only as .jpgs, backed up on Flickr andFacebook and Imgur and in cheap portable hard drives, they were subject to the ravages of time. 
Prints only lasted so long. The negatives, from which they were originally made, were lost or destroyed. Saving these analog memories from their inevitable destruction can be as easy as a one-click desktop scanner, but sometimes the images have already suffered from damage. 
Software like Adobe Photoshop can breathe life back into faded photos—if you know how to do it right.

Read the rest —->

Amazing!

[Gifset: Laverne Cox speaks at the GLAAD media awards, she says,

"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other."]
