I remember back in the day I wasn’t any good at Photoshop (not that I’m a pro now, but have a little better understanding what does what) and I’d change around my photos, save them in the crappy edited version and overwrite the originals – bad idea. You always want to keep the originals as is – if you’re planning on gussying them up, save it as a new file. You’ll thank yourself for it.
This file was one that died on my original hard drive back in the day, but was saved on my Webshots page thankfully. Unfortunately, it was saved in a smaller format that lost a lot of the detail. One of the things you can do to bring a pixelated photo back to life is to overlay textures on top of it. You can still see some of the boxey shapes that make up pixelation, but an overlay of a nice texture can fix it up a bit (along with a few other photo processing techniques). HERE is the original.
