Subject: Photo restoration - how to deal with silvery sheen in parts of image?



Some 80 year old photos in my possession have an odd haze or sheen
over some areas, mostly within a couple centimeters of the edge. The
areas mostly affected are dark. Thus the shadow detail is obscured.
The haze or sheen is not uniform, but more evident in some dark areas
than other dark areas. It seems that areas sullied by fingerprints are
less affected.

The photos don't scan very well. The sheen is quite pronounced.

The angle of light has an effect on the sheen, but I can't find an
angle that gets rid of it satisfactorily to give me a good
reproduction (by digital camera).

Any suggestions?

G.
