What is photo restoration?
Over years of improper storage and poor handling, many photos fall prey to all sorts of maladies. Often they are folded, cracked, torn, burned, punctured, faded and basically mutilated.
Through scanning, careful and tedious digital manipulation, and reprinting, they can usually be restored to full beauty. Depending how much of the photo’s original physical content is lost, plays a large part in how well the restoration can be performed. Even though today’s software makes such restoration possible, artistic ability becomes a huge factor when some areas must be re-created from basically nothing. It is here, where my years of art training gives me a distinct advantage.
Without seeing the amount of damage, it is difficult to put a price on photo restoration. It is pretty safe to safe to say, that most works fall under the $50 range. It is always best if you could email me a scan or photo of the image in question for me to give you a fair assessment.
With the advent of better email and home print capabilities, more of my work these days is done via email as opposed to printing and shipping hard copy prints. When printing is required, all my final prints are done on an Epson photo printer and Premium Epson Photo Paper backed with a 1/16” styrene to prevent buckling.
