Photographs can last for a long time if cared for. Handling alone will create some damage although it may not be visible straight away. You will definitely be able to see from the repetitive handling over many decades the damage that can be caused.
Some photographs end up in frames and although they are not being handled they will succumb to the slow torture of UV light, even if not in direct sunlight they will fade and slowly the image will vanish into the paper they were developed onto. Damage can happen despite your best attempts to prevent it.
Creases and folds can remove substantial areas of the original photo and to a certain extent these can be recovered. It becomes more difficult when faces in the photos fall foul of this – but it is not impossible.
Faded images often get a strange colour cast, lose contrast and in turn lose detail – this can be fixed but from time to time a certain amount of detail will be lost.
We can help! – Using up to date digital technology to piece together and restore your photos will mean you also have a digital copy you can print again and again.
All part of the service
As part of the process we will sharpen the image to bring out details and features possibly unseen in the original print.
Colour correction as seen in the above photograph is a simple task and is undertaken on black and white photos to remove the yellowing of the photo which has happened over many years.
