Photo Restoration - Old and valued photos can be very susceptible to damage: exposure to light, being scrunched around in the cardboard box on the top of the closet, acid from the glass of orange juice that your ex-spouse  threw at you.  Now, you can photo restore old photos and damaged photos to pristine condition.

Minor to Moderate Photo Restoration . . . $45 to $60 
Notice the crack on Dad's left arm and the scratch in the Ronald's hat.  Both were in non-critical areas, as were the fold at the bottom-right corner and the tear at the bottom left.  Even the discoloration in Barbara's face and hat were not in critical areas.  This was fairly easy photo retouching.

Moderate to Major Photo Restoration . . . $60 to $80
Notice the discoloration, especially on Milton's face.  When we restore old photos, faces are critical areas and difficult to repair.  Also, notice how blurred and out of focus Rita's hands and legs and the rest of the photo are.  It's easy to take an overly-sharp picture and romantically soften it.  It's much more difficult to sharpen a blurred photo that has little detail to begin with.  I would categorize this as "moderate" photo retouching.

Although no critical areas are damaged, the grainy-ness of the "before" little Barry makes this a moderate to major photo retouching operation.  The "after" photo of this adorable little tyke (none other than me-self) has been de-grained and restored to black-and-white.  You may, though, choose to have a Sepia tone given to your photo, for that oh-so-trendy Retro look.

Moderate to Major Photo Restoration . . . $60 to $80 
Once again, it's not so much the cracks and the water stains, but, rather, the granny-ness (pun intended) that make this a major restoration.  Harry and Sarah (that's Harry on the left) have seen better days, and will soon see them again.

Moderate to Major Photo Restoration . . . $60 to $80
This tintype of Fern's great-great-great-great grandfather has some major fading and discoloration problems, as well as a severe case of BBS (Burnt Beard Syndrome) and some other blemishes.  To fix the beard, a graft was taken from the good left-side of the beard, flipped around as a mirror image, and implanted on the damaged right-side.  So skillfully was it done that he never once said "ouch".

P.S. - Above is a good example of how you may choose either black-and-white or Sepia.

Giganticus Photo Restoration . . . $85 and up
I received this very small and very damaged photo from Leti in Los Angeles.  Besides repairing the tears and replacing the missing corner, she asked that I remove the child from the bottom of the picture.  In addition, I decided to extend the top of the photo so that I could add to the couple's faces and heads.

When Leti first saw the restored version on my sample page, she emailed:  "I love the picture; everything is perfect you have done an amazing job never expected to turn out so good i just love it thanks u have done a great job... "  Of course, I'm much too modest to show you this.

Humongous Photo Restoration . . . $85 and up
Now this was indeed a major piece of restoration work.  Among other things, both dresses had to be cleaned up and, in many areas, created from scratch.  The patriarch's temple and ear had to be carefully restored.  And notice how the unnaturally sharp shift from light to dark in the man's coat has been blended into a smoother transition.  Pat myself on the back, why don't I.

Aracelly sent me her Mom's high-school picture to restore.  Luckily, there were no major details missing, but there was a whole boatload of moderate damage.  The missing parts had to be carefully replaced so as to retain the skin tone and texture.
