Photo Restoration is a multi-step process that attempts to repair and recover aging or damaged photographs. Using high-resolution reproduction methods and advanced manual and digital restoration techniques, it's possible to reduce or remove many forms of damage to your photographs.
Special photographs become cherished family heirlooms, but they don't last forever! Over time, photos become faded and dull, change colour, and get accidentally torn, cracked, or stained.
Damage can be caused by aging of the materials, exposure to sun, moisture or air, fire/heat, cracks, rips or oil stains from handling, liquid spills, acids from non-archival pens, tape or albums, improper developing processes, among other things. When this occurs, measures must be taken to repair the damage as soon as possible. Leaving the issues unaddressed will result in continued deterioration of the original, making it more and more difficult to recover with time.
Your damaged photos are not yet lost forever! Our photo restoration service makes it possible to repair most deterioration and damage. It's even possible to remove unwanted objects or people, or to add people into photos.
