old family photo that has seen better days?
Want to preserve priceless family photos
for generations to come?
I offer digital restoration services for images.
As the needs of each job are different, youcan contact me
to discuss your needs. Some jobs may only need minor color
correction or minor touch ups. Others require extensive amounts
of effort and care to bring them back to near original quality.
Sadly, not all damge can be repaired either. I will evaluate
your photos and let you know the prognosis before any work
You may ask, "Why,
can't this wait until I figure out how on my computer?"
Don't wait - photos degrade every day. For
photos that are not good condition, scanning can be just the
start. Even photos in good condition need scaned at high resolutions
in order to have quality 5x7, 8x10 and larger size prints
made. Digital imaging software is pretty simple to start using,
but professional grade software takes years to learn and master.
I have been working in photoshop professionally for over 9
years now. I started photo restoration projects on piles of
old photos my from my own family. It made me sad to see all
that history fading away. The joy that some of the restored
photos has brought to my family has been priceless. I want
to help you preseve your family treasures as well.

folds and creases are actually the easy thing to remove.
It is the stains and discolorations that are hard to
eliminate, especially the ones on skin and facial features.
Every picture not only tells a story, it has a story behind
it.. Don't let your family stories fade away into history.
