Article about: Just like to share a couple of photo's in my collection of the same Waffen SS wounded soldier. I was wondering about his epaulettes. Temporary rank? It's hard to see because of the camera fl

    I must ask - have you 'retouched' these photos or
    manipulated them in some way ? They look grainy
    and too dark, I'm thinking they are reprints.........
    Yes, I have fixed them up a bit. The first photo was very faded and both had a lot of white dots I had to remove. On both I added contrast. I guessed that you guys would like to see them fixed up. Are they too dark though?

    They look like they have been copied from the pages of a book,
    where the ink bleeds into dark areas. Original, untouched
    actual photos would be best, IMO. Simply scanned,
    they should look ok - even with the white specs.

    The watermark is a good idea.........

    I will in the future put up both untouched and touched photo's. I find the touched up photo's make it easier to see details. I don't have the original untouched photo's on my computer but I did check the photo's themselves. They both have different types of paper and sizes. One is passbook size with no printing on the reverse and the other is a small snapshot taken at home I guess and is marked several times with Agfa Lupex with two lines underneath. I haven't done the UV test yet.
