I am in the fortunate position of having a professionally made print, some 20
years old, from a transparency (Kodachrome) some 40 years old, one of very
many!  My first attempt with my new slide scanner was on this same slide, and
hence I am able to see the colour changes over those past years.

I would like to try your restore.py plug-in, and have copied the restore.py
file to the script directory.  However, here I am stuck, as I have to admit
that I don't understand your instructions in step 3!  Could you be so kind as
put step 3 in a more elementary form!  Many thanks,  Alanp
