How to Repair an Old Photo in Photoshop Pt.2
In Part 2 we are focusing on the photo itself. There are many good Tools to use when doing this sort of thing, but the three to keep in mind are the Clone Stamp, Healing Brush, and Patch Tool. Mom helps me get the details right as we re-create a lot of the photo.

Mom also tells us where Barbie and Ken come from, and that she was called Barbie as a child. Something I never knew until now.
