Retouching/Restoring

Retouching/Restoring

From simple image enhancement to careful restoration, our skilled team can bring out the best in every photograph, as well as restore old prints to their former glory.

Retouching:

Photo retouching is an excellent way to get the most out of an image. We offer a variety of retouching techniques and services to help you to enhance your photographs and artwork.

Restoration:

We all have photographs that we treasure, family portraits passed down from generation to generation or historic photographs of a time or place that is important to us. Often, these photographs are damaged, whether faded, torn or simply old. The good news is; our team specialises in removing scratches, dust, cracks, tears and colour casts to restore your photographs to their former glory.

3 – 5 working days depending on the intensity of the retouching.

Q&A with Lauren Smit
- Fine Art Printing Specialist

An authority on fine art printing, Lauren is an expert in archival fine art paper selection and skilled in retouching.
How does photo restoration work?
  1. I scan your original photograph at the size you’ve chosen for your reproduced image.
  2. I restore/retouch the newly scanned digital version of your original photograph as requested or advised.
  3. I either print the restored version onto the paper you’ve chosen, or burn it to CD for you.
What is a colour cast?

It’s a tint of a particular colour that discolours the photograph – like photographs from the 70s that look yellow or pink.

Will my original photograph be altered in any way?

No, I simply scan the original and return it to you with the utmost care.

What is Digital Retouching and Enhancing?

Digital Retouching and Enhancing is a process in which a digital image, made from a scanned photograph, is altered to meet your approval. Generally it means the removal of image flaws (dust, scratches and blemishes) or the addition of colour to a photo.

What is Digital Manipulation?

Digital Manipulation is similar to Digital Retouching and Enhancing in that it is a process by which a digital image made from a scanned photograph is altered to meet your approval. It is different however, in that it is a higher level of alteration. Manipulation includes such changes as removal of objects and people and the addition of missing imagery.
