Photo restoration and enhancement
As in any photographic process, digital scans will only be as good as your original.
Although we ensure everything is cleaned before scanning, there may be a need to do final retouching and cleaning for damages, scratching, or discoloration. We can do this for you with our enhancement services:
- Editing and enhancing images, such as background removal, cropping, rotation etc.
- Repairing damage, such as scratches, tearing, and stains
- B&W to color, and vice versa
Photo enhancement includes skin smoothing, blemish or red-eye removal, application of makeup or teeth whitening for your perfect smile, or other details you wish to retouch. For examples of our work, please visit our Photo Restoration | Enhancement page.
Pricing guide: although price can start as low as $8.80 for a simple, basic retouching job, photo restoration and enhancement prices vary greatly depending on size and complexity so please contact us for a quote. Price quoted does not include scanning.
