Old photos are... well, old photos. Some are in better shape than others, but they still provide us with an illustration of what is being described in words.

Newspaper photos are the most difficult to salvage. It takes a bit of work using Photoshop to clarify and improve each photo. Photoshop is a computer program used to make a photo lighter or darker. The program is also able to make a blurry photo clear.

The Bits and Pieces column has used this little explanation about old photos and Photoshop before, every few years in fact, to let readers know the photos offered here are worked to make every one as clear as possible.

As good as possible is not always crisp, but it is a part of our history. The right-side photo is an example. If it wasn’t for this 1949 photo, we would be able to imagine the Melody Rangers of Coon Crick, but now we can actually see each member of the band.

By the way, last week we featured a photo of Cori Clark as she prepares to play her music at the Moses Lake Golf and Country Club fall style show. Cori is the daughter of Florence Clark, on the right side of today’s photo.
