About Us

A snapshot shows a moment in time,

A good photograph tells a story,

A great photograph captures your imagination.


We have been scanning and restoring images since 2002. It all started with wanting to share several old family photo albums with relatives.

Admittedly we started by making all the mistakes that a person could make, like using the default settings on a cheap scanner. Our photo editing software was not much better; it was the program that came with a digital camera. Early on knowledge about scanning and photo restoration was sparse. Nevertheless, the restoration bug had bitten us.

Soon afterwards several books about photo restoration were published. Our search for knowledge and understanding of restoration has never wavered. We are constantly reading and reviewing so we can bring you the best possible images.

We do all our work in-house. We donโ€™t send it off for someone else to do.

We would like to thank the people and organizations that have done so much to advance image restoration, retouching, and scanning. In no order, they are Katrin Eismann, Dan Margulis, Ctein, Chris Orwig, Matt Kloskowski, Scott Kelby, Corey Barker, Kelby Training, Deke McClelland, Janine Smith, Lynda.com, Ben Long, Dr. Taz Tally, and so many others.


Who am I?

My name is Alan Herrmann, I live in Mountain Home, Arkansas and this is a little bit of my story.

As far back as I can remember I have been drawing, designing, building, or painting something. From drawing pictures during English, Math, and Science classes to building and painting model cars, ships, airplanes, or spacecraft: I have always been creative.

Photography, restoration, and designing are an extension of that creativity.

Photography gives us the chance to see the world around us in a unique way; whether it’s close-up, far away, or sideways.

Restoration is the chance to repair something that is broken and make it enjoyable once again.

Design is how it all fits together, whether it is a business card or a billboard, it needs to be easy on the eyes and sensibilities.

My passion is sharing the results with others.

Aww nards; that didn't work.
