dark places are "opened up", highlight washouts are reduced, resolution
is enhanced, motion blur because the camera moved can be canceled.

This was only a basic restoration -- the cracks on the left are minor
and not across the face, and the main problem lies with the
and contrast. I see many darkening photos from the time of
War II, when people tried to make their own photos for loved ones
overseas, but often got the Do It Yourself darkroom processing wrong.
In severe cases of bleaching or darkening, chemical
can be tried as a last resort after
the best digital image is safely in hand.
