What do Photo Restoration services include?
Photo restoration services include all the needed processes to make perfect digital copies of your old, damaged photos. Old photo restoration can consist of scanning the old photo or scanning other media-like slides or negatives to make accurate reproductions.
Some Taskers can use your old negatives or slides and create digital copies of them. The usual practice is to digitally-reconstruct damaged portions of existing photos and making new prints of the images. Most Taskers can provide digital prints as well as soft copies if requested. There may be some Taskers that can also mount the new prints on a photo frame.
Scanning old photos
The photo restoration process usually involves scanning your old photos with a digital scanner. Some specialised Taskers can go as far as scanning old negatives or old photo slides, in preparation for making new prints. Do note that it’s possible to restore most damaged, torn or faded old photos, but some old images are impossible to repair.
Photo restoration technology has its limits, so please don’t expect photo restoration specialists to restore completely torn up or burned photos.
Restoring old photos
Photo restoration specialists can make exact digital copies to work on after scanning. They can create digital duplicates of your old photos on a laptop or desktop, then use photo editing and retouching software to make the fixes. These can include digitally re-creating damaged or missing portions of the photo, adjusting the brightness, and fixing the blurry appearance of aged photos to make the picture sharper.
Some Taskers can even enhance faded colours, reduce the reddish-brown sepia colour and turn it into a crisp black and white print. You can also request specialists to colourise some elements or colourise the entire photo.
Printing and delivering old photos
After finishing the old photo restoration process, Taskers can give you the newly restored copies in your requested format and return your old photos. You can ask for prints of your digitally-recreated images on digital photo paper, as well as digital copies sent via email that you may store in a digital archive or print yourself.
Be sure to specify the size of the digital photo prints you want from the start; this influences the resolution settings needed for duplicating your old photos. Some Taskers may offer to mount your new prints on photo frames, saving you the time and effort of having them framed.
