Digital Editing of Customer Files
Art Reproduction, Photo Restoration & Image Editing
Digital editing is almost inevitable for many of our customers and clients. When images are supplied by you, the customer, we usually begin by balancing the colors, removing spots, stains, wrinkles, rips etc. and proofing so that you can make sure the resulting image is made to your satisfaction.
For photo restorations, we begin by inspecting the print that needs to be restored..Is there mold on the print, glass or frame? If so, we will need special gear to remove the mold in an outdoor environment before scanning.
The sooner we begin the scanning process the better. We have had prints come in for a digital image capture and literally be falling apart, flaking and disintegrating right before our eyes. We need to capture that image professionally so that the memories or family history that go along with it can be preserved forever.
