In hitting the ground running on my first week back to college after many years, I admittedly did so with the wobbliest of feet. Although I’d had plenty of experience with a variety of digital-media products, I hadn’t really worked with Photoshop to any great degree, and as the opening course of Conestoga College’s Digital Media program came on with the speed of an over-enthusiastic, coffee-saturated intern bent on corporate notice, I soon found myself awkwardly clicking away like someone who’d just bought his first computer. It was humbling, to be sure, and as one of the older students at Conestoga, I soon found myself asking, “Am I no longer computer-savvy? Have I lost it?” The question lingered, but with the many Photoshop techniques I learned that first week, I learned how to repair and restore old photographs (exampled here), and in doing so, I learned that nothing is ever so lost or of ill-repair that it can’t be brought back. It was something I could carry assuredly, and I could completely see the job of image restoration as one to which someone would head off excitedly each day.
