Sun damage is a common problem with old family photos. Exposure to sunlight, air and moisture causes fading, cracking, and the appearance and brown and yellow spots. Acidic glues and adhesives often make matters worse.
Digital photo restoration is a way to repair those old sun damaged photos and bring them back to life. Restoration can bring back the colour the sun has leached away. It is important to note that the original photo is never damaged in the restoration process. A scan is taken to get a digital copy of your damaged photo. Next, one of our restoration artists will use a specialist computer program to digitally correct the colour of the photo, bringing blacks back and removing the yellowing. The tone and colour saturation are altered to give a natural look as close as possible to the original photo. The idea is to make the photo just how it looked when it was first produced. After this process you will have your original untouched photo and a beautifully restored photo. You will also get a digital file that you can use to upload your photo into your digital photo album.
