Please post a low-res version of the image or a section of it on this forum (not via e-mail reply) and elaborate on what exactly you mean by »revive«.
I second c.p's reply. Post a low-res here as 'revival' of photographs in generic terms is on case-to-case basis.
If privacy is a concern for you, use Lightroom - it has a great set of presets to revive photographs. You could also take it to the next level by tweaking the settings from presets to make your own custom setting for each photo that you're looking at 'reviving'.
is there any way to do that on photoshop Cs3? sorry for not posting the low-res photo like what you said its for privacy concern.. thanx

There are plenty of ways to edit an image in Photoshop but what steps would make sense in this case does depend on the image and the damages/deterioration it has suffered – which we cannot assess.
If you can or will not provide the information we might need to effectively help you you may want to google something like
photoshop restore old photo
and you will probably find a bunch of tutorials; pick one/several that adress/es the issues of your image.
thank you for the helpful advise sir, I will try to post any old picture that I have by tomorrow cause I dont have any here at office.
Thanx again sir.
The aging process can have various effects depending on the material (black and white, color, stock, developement), storage (like exposure or even partial exposure to sunlight), surface damages due to chemical or mechanical influences (decolorization, scratches, cracks, tears).
Even posting just a section (that does not contain recognizable personal features) of the image in question might help to provide an idea what the problems in this case are.
