||Each photograph has unique restoration needs.
such as this turn-of-the-century bicyclist can suffer from a cocktail of problems,
including but not limited to micro and macro-scratches, tears, creases, foxing,
water stains, fingerprint acid burns and mildew, all of which have a cumulative effect on
image quality. Using digital restoration, all of these problems can be
resolved. Missing pieces, uneven fading, greenish tints and even some bad
hand-retouching done by the original photographer can be corrected in the course of
a restoration such as this one.
Not all photos are this badly damaged but even those with surface wear, color
drift and exposure issues can be dramatically improved upon. Minor
cosmetic changes can also be made, such as red-eye correction, the removal of undereye
circles and facial lines, and in the case of modern color photos gone green, the
restoration of a normal color spectrum.
