In this video I restore a photo of Sam Houston(1793–1863), the 7th Governor of Texas. I didn’t have to adjust any contrast or sharpness, as the photo already were in fairly good condition except for all the scratches and noise. Compared to his current photo on Wikipedia, my photo restoration wins! I used GIMP in this video, but I will be using both GIMP and Photoshop in my coming videos.
