Website to help improve image quality for faded documents or overlapping images #general #photographs

I just learned about this cool website which is designed to help people clean up images so they are more legible. I think it was designed for philatelists (stamp collectors) who want to decipher overlapping postmarks, but the tools should be useful for genealogists, too. At the moment the site is in its early stages (maybe the software tools, too) so it might be a challenge to use for those of us who aren't computer savvy (like me). But it seems like a great resource.

I found it intuitive to use. It did improve the photograph I was studying, but the original resolution was so bad it was beyond improving
