Old photographs are irreplaceable and vitally important to the telling of your family's history.
We take your precious family photographs and restore them to their former glory. No longer will you have to squint and try to imagine what someone looked like, you will see him or her clearly. Fading, scratches, tears, and missing parts are restored without damaging or harming the original image.
The best part is that once restored you can easily share the photograph and its wonderful stories with the rest of the family. What we do is so much more than “fix” an image; we help preserve your family’s history and each individual’s unique place in the world. That includes preserving/restoring the original photographer’s vision or style.
To us restoration is about preserving your family’s history. In the case of individual or family portraits, one of your great grandparents paid to have this particular photograph taken. Honor their memory by having those images faithfully restored.
We use a multitude of features available in Adobe Photoshop including; adjustment layers, red eye removal, dust and scratch remover, filters, and sharpening. We also use several plug-in and stand-alone programs to bring you the best possible restoration. Inside of Adobe Photoshop, we have developed several Actions that will bring out color and detail in an otherwise faded and lifeless image.
