Restore your old photos to their former glory by applying a colour tint effect in Photoshop

If you have found a stack of old photos, chances are there are some that have been given a hand tinted effect. Done well, it can look amazing and give a new lease of life to an otherwise tattered print.
Issue 82 contains a great tutorial on adding colour to old photos, using a modern, colour image as a reference point. This means you don’t have to worry about picking the right colour shades.
