2. Digitally enlarge the image
Ideal step for old photos that have been scanned to create a digital copy.

3. Select Fade Correction
Choose Adjust > Color > Fade Correction. Drag in the Before pane to center an important part of the image (such as a face).
4. Adjust Amount of correction
Adjust the value in the Amount of correction control until the image looks the most natural.
