Image Repair

Things do happen. Have you ever sat on a photo or left one in a pocket when the laundry got done? Have you ever dropped a photo out of an envelope and wondered where it might have gone?

Have you ever left a photo sitting in a bag, or a box, or in an album for a very long time and then found it later, only to realize that the photo is now damaged and may not be salvageable?

This example was the result of a photo accidentally being dropped. The owner did not know where the photo had gone and it ended up sitting in a parking lot for several days. The cars coming and going caused small pebble holes in the subject’s face and throughout the surface of the photo. Miraculously, the owner found the photo in the same parking lot! It was battered and bruised, but it fell back into the hands of the rightful owner.

Let’s take a closer look at the photo:

Childhood Photo Damaged and Considered Lost

We painstakingly corrected each pebble mark and photo blemish. This was an entirely manual process, but let’s take a look at the finished photo:

Corrected Childhood Photo - No More Pebble Marks!

As can be seen with the corrected version, it would be VERY difficult to even know that the photo was ever damaged in the first place… These same procedures can be applied to documents that have weathered the storm. Perhaps a certificate has been folded up one too many times. Maybe a deed was stuffed in an envelope and has become wrinkled, worn, or torn. We can help.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment to discuss how we might be able to help you with your photo and document restoration needs.
