Photo Restoration

 

Restorations are done on images that were originally shot on film, printed and then scanned for restoration. If you have a digital image that needs work, then it falls under the Retouching category.

If you have more than one image to restore, contact us at 919.576.5331 to make an appraisal appointment.

  • To upload a digital scan for restoration please use the following upload field. We will review the image and contact you with a cost estimate. See guidelines below so you can “guesstimate” for yourself.
  • File formats supported are .jpg, jpeg, .tif, .tiff, .zip and .rar. Also upload a .doc, .docx, .pdf or .txt file with  your name, email address, phone number, filename(s) and specific instructions for the work you want done on the files.
  • When uploading please select the Restoration directory. One file at a time with a 20MB limit is permitted, so if you have multiple files, please zip them first. You may also include your instruction file in the same zipped file.
  • You must have Java enabled in your browser. For Internet Explorer you must also have Active-X enabled. If you have questions or problems please email us.

Prints: All non-group restorations include one print up to 5×7 at no extra charge. Print size is determined by original as we do not enlarge restorations unless that is specifically requested. Additional prints may be ordered at our standard rates. Email us for details. Include your phone number for faster service.

Scanning services can be provided if you send in the original print, negative or slide. Prints are preferred. We can create very high resolution scans in house. If you send originals, please insure them and send them via Fedex or UPS with tracking and signature required. USPS (postal service) is NOT recommended for this. We ARE NOT responsible for loss or damage of originals at any time during the process, in-transit, in the workshop or otherwise.
