Similar to stuffed animals or favorite blankets, photos are one of those things that tend to attract sentimental memories. In the modern age of digital photography, it’s easy to accumulate an extensive archive of photos that document all the important moments of your life–simply snap as many pictures as you want and then transfer them to your computer to be perfectly preserved. However, photos from the time of film had to exist as physical artifacts, which are not only difficult to store but are also subject to deterioration over time. If you haven’t looked at your old prints in a while, chances are that at least a couple of them have suffered damage. We at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design want to help you preserve your important memories for as long as possible, which is why we offer digital restoration services for your photos. In this article, our team will explain how the digital restoration process works.
The first step in digital restoration is to scan the original photo so that a digital duplicate can be made. It’s important that the scan be the best possible quality, as a lot of the options for restoration are going to depend on the original scan. After the photo is scanned, the original is set safely aside, and a copy of the original scan is filed and backed up so that our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design always has a fresh slate to work from if we make a mistake or want to try a different effect.
Our digital restoration services are great for correcting a number of common problems with aging photos, including fading, yellowing, or spots of damage. With our digital tools, we can restore the proper contrast and color of your photo, as well as remove all signs of damage such as stains or tears. If you want to preserve your family photos and display copies that look like new, call our team at Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design to learn more about how digital restoration can help.
