Digital Restoration

Photographs are fragile. No matter how careful you are, you have probably lost a cherished family photo to water damage, cracking, crinkling or marauding two-year olds. Age and light are not kind to photographs. Most photos can be restored to good as new condition.

How it Works

Just bring in your photograph and we'll give you an estimate based on the condition of the original. We'll scan the original to create a digital version to work on. Your original is returned to you unharmed as soon as possible for your safe keeping. After scanning, we combine creativity and imagination with technical skill to repair any damage and restore the photograph. Of course, the better the original, the better the result. We do not work on any copyrighted material without WRITTEN permission of the photographer or owner of the copyright. Exceptions are: if the photographer is deceased; if the studio has gone out of business; or if the photograph is over 25 years old.
