The product was shot in poor light on a dull background. It was also slightly crooked. The label had wrinkles and was misaligned. I corrected that, adjusted the color, and moved it to a more interesting background.
The white background had wrinkles, and the color was dull in this image, so I fixed the background and made the color pop.
This photo had been glued to a kitchen wall for almost 30 years, so after it was taken down I needed to not only fix the rips, but also try to minimize the color shifts.
I did some minor skin retouching, cleaned up fly-way hair, and changed the color of her sweater.
Because of poor lighting this image was dull and the colors didn’t pop. Also, the whites were not white at all.
This old picture of my Mother-in-law is probably from the 1950′s or so and at some point it was ripped & had tape stuck to it.
The kids had gotten at this photo with a ball point pen which in addition to the creases and tears made this photo a fun challenge to restore. The customer said this was one of the only photos she had of her favorite uncle and was thrilled to get it restored.
Not every image needs hours of detail work to be restored. These old family slides from the mid-70s were still very sharp and clean, but the colors had faded and shifted. With a little bit of adjustment my family is restored to its full 1976 colorful glory.
This photo of my friend’s father is one of the most complicated repair jobs I’ve done. The photo was discolored with age, had liquid spilled on it, was stuck to the frame’s glass which was also broken, and had tears from when the family tried to remove the picture from the frame. Because there were so many different things that needed fixing I had to use a variety of repair methods.
This photo had been dug up by my husband’s family. It is one of the only pictures of his grandmother from when she was just a kid. It was taken to celebrate her First Communion in the early 1900s. Because this was the only copy, and there is no negative, I scanned the photo and used Photoshop to digitally restore it. I love doing digital restoration of old photos, and I especially love seeing the faces of people when they get a print of the new image.
