PHOTO RETOUCHING AND RESTORATION
Whether it's a family heirloom, or will be one day, we can restore the beauty of your damaged, discolored, torn or fading photographs or artwork. We can preserve your memories by re-creating a new piece to look just like when the original was brand new. That's what photo restoration is all about. Your piece can be enhanced by adding or altering color, changing size Your original photographs or artwork remain safely in the studio. We do not ship your originals out of town like other vendors who advertise photo restoration.
1) High Resolution scan or copy--Scan your photograph on a flatbed scanner at 300 dpi or ppi. Most modern home printers/copiers are ALSO scanners. If your image is very small you can scan your photo at 100, 200, 300 per cent, or more, of the original size depending on what you want your final output to be.
Then, you can e-mail your file directly to us here at: firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Creative artwork--This is when the magic happens. Skilled artisans work on digital files (not your original) to clean, remove flaws, and enhance the image. Sometimes we have to replace missing parts of the image that are damaged, or simply not there anymore. Finally we will add any enhancements such as color, tonal boosting/reduction, specialized creative artwork to make your piece everything you may wish.
3) Archival Printing--We use the finest museum-quality materials to be sure that your portraits or artwork last for decades to come. Finished work can be any size that makes sense to your needs. It does not have to be the same size as your original.
