I don't have Photoshop because it's a bit too expensive for what I'd use it for. I never learned too much about how to use the free GIMP. So what I did was to use the photo editing tool that came with Windows 10, and a few on line free editing programs like Paint.net, Fotojet and BeFunky. I used them one after the other and it works.
First I cropped the photo to eliminate some of the image
that I didn't want and make it sort of a portrait.
Next I tried removing the old white specks that developed over the years.
I removed a great many of them, not perfect but very good. I also filtered in a sort of sepia color.
It helped hide the white spots and give the photo a warmer look.
Finally I used a function to make it into a portrait shape.
I wanted to frame it as a 5x7 but the photo printing site said it would not be clear enough. The 4x6 size would also not be clear enough but I'll take a chance on it.
It fits right under the ice cube/water dispenser. It's where you place your glass to fill it with ice cubs or water.
I soaked it in vinegar overnight.
It's clean but the finish is partly gone. It still looks bad.
I phoned GE for a replacement and the price for a new tray is $60.02! 😧 What?
They offered me a special deal price of $49.41.❌
I'm not sure what to do next. At Loews they had nothing to replace it. I'm thinking of going to Hobby Lobby to see if they have any ideas. Maybe they haves some sort of silver waterproof paint that will stick to plastic.
After spending all that money on the refrigerator you'd think they'd use metal, not plastic.
Have any of you had a similar problem? Do you have any ideas?
