How to Add Detail to a Light Faded Image in Photoshop



Older scanned Images can sometimes fade over time. This technique will darken the image and bring back the detail.


Step One

Open a faded image in Photoshop (File > Open).

Step Two

With your image on the Background layer, duplicate the layer by dragging the Background layer to the Create New Layer icon or Cmd/j (PC-Ctrl/j).

Step Three

Set the upper layer Mode to Multiply.

Step Four

If the effect is too strong, adjust the upper layer Opacity.

Step Five

If the effect is not strong enough, duplicate the upper layer and repeat the process.
