Dark Photographs

The Elements file has several layers. You can turn the layer adjustments on/off and see the impact they have on the image.

If you turn them all on, the image will be restored. To try your own settings, leave them off and add new adjustment layers as outlined in the KwikGuide.

Again, we isolated the actual tintype from the mat, as lightening the tintype to the extent it needed would destroy the look of the mat.
