and a 35 mm camera with macro lens. Then you can make as many "real"
photographic copies as needed as long as you properly store the negative.

Thanks to everyone who gave advice. The "older Boy" is me with
my 'lil sister. I was 3yrs old at the time. I could likely remove
the crease (damage) from the jacket, but I was wondering if I should
keep the wrinkeled (damaged) background. Should I keep it or TRY to
restore it totaly?

- Try several versions of a photo and then use a program like Paint Shop Pro
to compare multiple copies at the same time. Then keep the best.
If the image editing program doesn't allow screen comparisons, make a large
printout of the best versions after editing and mark each one with the file
It takes about two years to learn image editing and file management. You can
always go back to the original scan and work on it again when you have a new
copy of your favorite image program with extra tools. My images are usually
taken to the stage of removing distracting damage.
There are some new kinds of printer paper available to make a favorite
picture look like a painting on canvas or fabric.
