Photo Restoration - Why do I need Photo Restoration?

Photo Restorations are essential, you are preservingan important part
of family history, and your family will have to continue on the memory for
the next generation. If left un-restored the negative or print could end up
just that, un-restorable and future generations will not have that vital visual
link to their past. So even if it’s a simple retouch of a face, or torn up
faded photo that needs a complete cleanse and restore, don't leave it,
act now.

Next protect the image with acid free tissue or paper to prevent any
further damage by the immediate environment, then get it restored, but
don’t just get one print get two. If you give a copy of your newly restored
photo to another family member then it’s more likely your precious
memories will survive for generations to come as you are not the sole owner.
Far too often all the family heirlooms are kept in one place and should the
worst happens then all is lost.

Next get a digital copy too. It’s all very well getting the prints done but if
you get a CD/DVD with your images on then you can keep a digital archive.
Don’t just leave them on a CD though, if you upgrade your PC make sure
you copy the images on the latest media, in this fast paced world you never
know when your storage will become obsolete.

Finally if you have one why not upload it to an on-line photo-share or 
online storage space, you can then share it with the world if you want
and let you relatives know its there. Who knows maybe they will get the
bug and take the plunge to get their old images restored too?

To summarise, 1. Digitally protect your photos    2. Get it restored 
3. Get two copies   4. Take a copy to CD/DVD  
5. Share/store the photos on line
