Sometimes less is more….


I wanted to share this with you, when it comes to editing vintage photos, it is not always necessary to do a lot of fixes. 

This is a photo of my husband’s grandfather who he never met…

Raymond Elwin Scribner Sr

Great photo, in great shape, just “muddy” color….


I opened it in my Windows Live Photo Gallery and adjusted the contrast, the shadows and a bit of highlights….I also cropped out the edges…

This is all this needs and it took about 45 seconds!  If you have Windows, look at using the Photo Gallery for editing photos that are not trashed.  For those you need Vertus or PSE.


Just an FYI….


  1. Nice job, Sandy! I love it when folks share the old photos and stories from their family histories! He was a nice looking gentleman. =D

  2. That small fix made a big difference. I need to take the time to make some of those small improvements to some of the photos that I have. Thanks for sharing that tip.
