Photo Restoration Services
A very common "Tool of the Trade" for Designer's is Adobe Photoshop. I have been using this particular software for over 20 years and really enjoy restoring old photographs. My photo Restoration services include: Scanning & Resizing, Repairs to Damaged Photos, Colorization, Enhancements, and more.
*Extra charges might apply to any blackmail photos ;)
Depending on the severity of repairs or enhancements needed the amount of time & work required could vary significantly. The photo shown, above, is an example of what I can accomplish in about one hour. With extra time this photo cold stand further restorative measures. I work closely with my clients to meet and, hopefully, exceed their expectations while meeting their budget.
This picture, taken at the 1939 World's Fair in New York was, as you might have guessed, was originally Black & White. This particular client requested I scan the original and add color. Working collaboratively with the client we decided on what colors to add, and where. Online research of existing artifacts from this era were also used to establish period-correct color enhancements.
Torn and Damaged Photographs can be Repaired. This particular client's favorite picture with his baby boy, shown above, was a classic case. Utilizing surrounding color information I was able to make it look like the tear never happened! Further Photo Restorative serviced included enlarging to 8" x 10", color balancing, and level adjustments.
