Not working. Here's the cropped image showing the problem: imgur.com/MVpkbCf. The fingers should be more pink-flesh colored, and should blend into the arm on the left properly (it's possible the fingers were somehow in shadow.)

I appreciate the offer, but I really want to learn PS Essentials 11 in deep enough detail to do stuff like this myself. I understand layers, I understand selections and masks, right now I'm having trouble figuring out how to remove a bluish cast from a selected area and only that.

Yes, I'm using Essentials 11 which I managed to get on sale for $49. The photo needs a lot of work, so I need to learn about many of the tools.

Too late! I already scanned it, cracks and all... not too bad, though, I'm sure I can fix them.

As expected, flattening it in the scanner did cause cracking of the emulsion. After cleaning off the scanner bed carefully and also wiping the dried garbage, fingerprints, and dust off the photo, I was able to get a good scan at 2400dpi/48 bit color. Now I just need to learn how to retouch in Photoshop Essentials...

By "ink" I assume you mean the dyes that are in this (probably) Kodacolor print? I don't understand why moisture would ruin the dyes, as the print is placed in a developing bath when it is processed. At any rate, the point is made that the print may end up less glossy. I'll go ahead and scan it -- wish me luck. Thanks for your advice, everyone.

It's not a museum piece, but it is a sister-in-law piece! Hmm -- would steaming it make the paper more flexible? The paper is quite stiff and hard at the moment.
