Eddie August Schneider (1911-1940) image from 1940 restored
Eddie August Schneider (1911-1940) image from 1940 restored by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) on February 1, 2011. I took the original 1.5 MB jpg scan and converted it into a png file which was now 3 MB. I imported it into GIMP and desaturated the image to remove the sepia tone and get it into black and white. I saved that image and imported it into Picnik and used the auto-fix function which optimizes the contrast and brightness. I then used Picnik to re-add in a sepia tone so it matches the original scan. The result is a much cleaner image and it is 1.6 MB.
