Restoring Damaged Photographs with Free GIMP Image Editing Software

In my article “A Global Pandemic is a Great Time to Expand your Skillset,” I shared the torn photograph that spurred me to learn some new techniques for photo restoration. Here I share two excellent videos which taught me the primary techniques of “clone” and “heal” in order to restore badly damaged photos using the free open-source image editor, GIMP.

This type of editing takes time and patience, but as you can see from the examples, the results can be amazing!

It takes a little time to get comfortable with various aspects of photo editing, but I have been able to meet my amateur needs by learning a little at a time this way.
