    I know very little about Photoshop (currently using a trial version), but
    I'm having fun learning.

    I wonder if anyone could offer me some help or tips to clean this old photo
    of my brother taken around 1983. Looks to me like the film may have been
    corrupted and has gone 'foggy'. Is there any way to remove the fogginess
    and perhaps clean the image up somewhat?

    kind of quality subject matter but this picture is useless!!!

    Congratulations, you rate an A+ in being a complete Usenet prick.

    Don't bother replying. This is my second and final posting in this
    "wonderful" newsgroup. And I won't be returning you'll be pleased to learn.
    Thank you for the warm welcome, turd.

  4. Don't let one twit spoil it for you. If Todd annoys you, then just killfile
    his name and you won't have to read any more of his 'helpful' messages.

    Why did you remove the picture. There are some people out there that would
    have offered more constructive advice, but now all they read is you anger at
    Todd, which to some people puts you on the same wavelength as Todd.

    if you plan to learn and use Photoshop, there are of course lots of more
    or less useful books. One that I find very helpful re your question is

    Katrin Eismann, Photoshop Restoration and Retouching

    It is not really meant for newbies and expects you to know at least PS
    basics. OTOH, it does not waste time and paper for repeating what you
    can read in the PS manual re all those menus and functions. The author
    guides you through restauration, using realworld examples like the one
    you probably had posted but now replaced by a text which is - sadly -
    also an insult to everybody who is willing to help you.

    By replacing your picture with a message to Radel you lower yourself to his
    level, I regret. You could just killfile and ignore him - something I must
    presumably have found necessary long since, because I didn't see his
    posting. Now, thanks to your petulance, you won't be able to get any advice
    on your picture, and your PS learning curve won't be helped by the (mostly)
    good people of this NG.
    Up to you.

    LOL, truly a newbie that has yet to learn to ignore usenet troll. One's like
    Flipper Mike and such.
    Too bad, that pic was totally fixable!
