How We Restore Photos
Photo restoration is a digital process. Where we take a physical photo and scan it to make a digital image. We can then use the latest professional software to skillfully restore the damaged areas in the photograph. This restored photograph can then be printed and displayed again as it was when first printed.
Although the restoration process is a digital one. It can take many hours to fully restore a photo. Because there are many small blemishes that are very visible once they are viewed on a screen. The tools we use to restore these blemishes, use existing information from good parts of the photo. Which are then copied and pasted on the top of the damaged areas.
View the video to see how we copy from different areas to cover up the blemishes. Once the blemishes are restored we can then improve the contrast and clarity. returning the photo back to how it would have looked over 120 years ago when it was first printed
