.People often think that when they have a photograph restored, the finished restored print will only be the same size as the original. It’s true that it can be, but what is often overlooked is that after a photograph has been digitally restored, the finished image can be printed virtually any size. It can be printed smaller for a locket or a special frame and, more importantly, it can be enlarged to a size at which you can see the detail of the original photo. Above is the print that I was given to work from, originally a good quality studio portrait and the only remaining print was this deteriorated one, which was about 4 inches x 3inches. Compare the “before” print to the finished enlargement after I had restored the image and you can now see the original detail in all its glory…. If this was your grandma, what a great picture to frame and put on the wall for all to enjoy
.This is a board-backed photograph that came to me in pieces and had been that way for a long long time. The decision was made to get it fixed and this is the finished result.
.This is a newspaper article where my customer’s son was cycling in with Bradley Wiggins. Newspaper articles are usually relatively poor print quality with the ‘dots’ being very visible when enlarged. This restored photograph was printed 15″ x 10″ and looked very impressive.
