Restore your Memories

Photographs are a brilliant way of keeping those treasured memories of bygone times. But like anything pictures can get damaged. When this happens they usually get thrown in a drawer or in a box never to see the light of day again.

Well all is not lost with today's technology it is possible to bring these treasured memories back to life. This process is known as Photo Restoration this can be done in various ways but the safest and most effective way is to have them restored digitally.

The process consists of of taking the original photo and scanning the image into a computer. Once this  has been done the original is no longer required and this gets stored away  in a container lined with acid free paper to prevent any harm coming to the picture. Then the creative process takes place.

Now there is a scanned fresh image to work on the photograph can start to be brought back to life. This is when the Restorer takes time to manually restore the elements of the picture. taking out all the damaged areas by hand and rebuilding the photograph back up to to a standard that often supersedes the quality of when it was first taken.

Once all repairs have been made it then possible to work even more magic and take the image a step further and introduce colour, if it was a black & white or sepia image. Items can be removed or added to the picture making family members appear as a whole when originally they were not present. To do this a second photo is needed so that the family members that are missing from the group shot can be added in all their full glory. There are many other things that can be done upon request.
