Digital Photo Restoration

It’s happened to all of us who engage in genealogy: you spend months or years tracking down photos of your great-grandparents, and then you find one, only to see that it has suffered significant damage. It’s faded, torn, water-stained… you’re heartbroken because it’s almost not worthy of public display.

Not every damaged photograph can be rescued, but let us save the ones that can. Here’s one from our family, to show you what’s possible. Notice in the restored image how your eye’s attention returns to the couple, now that the distracting blemishes are removed.

Once the basic restoration is complete, then after effects can be added, as you desire. Here’s an example of adding a vignette feature to the above photograph.

Sometimes the picture isn’t that old, but has suffered damage all the same. Here’s a before and after of a handsome young lad.

The example below provided a good challenge. The crosshatch artifact on the original was stubborn to remove.

Here’s another color restoration. The original photo had faded over time, and had a greenish tint all over. Here’s how it looked before and after.
