    Default advanced photo retouching

    Okay, I am attempting to retouch these 3 photos for my friend, however they are really bad, and I'm not into advanced retouching. So does anyone have any tips? I have Adobe Photoshop CS3 and CS4 extended.

    The last one is the best-- you can for the people just use the clone stamp to clean it up and remove the grain, then do something to smooth out the background (if that matters).
    The other two are just ugly, and that's really just what you're going to get unless you start making up data-- you would be better off, if you really need it to look good and it isn't important if it's accurate, just borrowing from other images that are similar, like for the hands in the first image. You can paint on it a lot, but it needs someone who is very familiar with photoshop to really get anywhere if you aren't going to use other images to patch, etc.
    The images just aren't that good in the first place, so there isn't that much to restore out of them. If you're going for a visual for a purpose, that's fine, but if you're trying to accurately restore the images for a "documentary" purpose (memories, etc), then you may not get very far.
