Software is used to repair digital copies (scans) of old photos which have damage or fading caused by handling or exposure to light over the years. The restoration process is labour intensive due to the fact that each and every defect is dealt with manually. For example, dust spots and scratches are removed one defect at a time for best results. Prices are based on the amount of time required for the restoration project. Quantity discounts are available.
Our basic photo restoration service includes the automatic application of simple enhancements such as clutter removal and horizon straightening where practical.
Every photo restoration consists of repairing and or adjusting the following as required:
- dust spots
- missing sections
- color loss
- color shifts
- mildew spots
- water spots
Many photos can benefit from some amount of enhancement. It could be as simple as straightening the horizon and removing some clutter, or as complicated as removing or adding a person to a photo. Both old and new photos can benefit.
Sometimes a snapshot taken only yesterday in a hurry does not turn out as well as expected. In many cases we can help to improve the image.
