Did you come across any old photograph last week while shifting your house or last month’s yard sale? Do your old scrapbook pictures look pale and fade? Or has your child torn the pictures from your wedding album? If you face any of these or similar problems like these, shake off your worries! With the blessings of technology, now we have the magic wand to revive the original essence of your photo, no matter how worse the condition of your photo is.

Due to technological limitations, previously we used analog cameras to capture photos and negatives to develop the actual images. During the ’80s and ’90s, this was the only method we applied for photo capturing and developing purposes. All of us have these images preserved in photo albums or photo holders. Since these images have been printed on paper and the paper has certain longevity, most of these 20 or more years old pictures are now fading and losing color. Many photos are torn and bad in condition.

Even if they are not too old, brand new photos are often torn and hampered in many ways. However, these images can be saved from getting completely destroyed by using image restoration services in Photoshop. Any kind of corrupt image is delicately edited by using different Photoshop tools. You can also revive any of your hazy images with the image restoration technique.

Digital image restoration is one of the most complicated services in Photoshop. It takes highly skilled graphic designers with lots of time and patience to accomplish. Let’s break down the process in brief to give you a better idea about how it actually works.


Clear your attics, blow the dust off, and scan them up

The first thing you need is to open up the dusty old boxes in your attic and remove the dust. Select which photos you want to send for old photo restoration service. The next thing is to scan them perfectly, meaning they should be as clear as possible. If the pictures are torn into pieces, you have to make it a single piece by joining them using scotch tape. Once your photos are ready, scan them and make the files organized in a folder, ready to send.

What do photo editors do?

After receiving files from you, image editors get straight to the work. They open the images in Photoshop and analyze the photo. It takes some time to determine what tools and what approaches should be applied to the photos. There are some basic tools used in most cases. The first thing they do is creating multiple layers so that they can divide work based on specific needs. Each layer is created for a specific purpose.

In order to remove the marks of torn parts or joints, image retouchers use healing brush tool, spot healing brush tool, clone stamp tools, patch tool, etc. If a part of the picture has major damage, image editors select the area with pen tool and then remove the spots. To brighten up the picture, the dodge tool is used to control the opacity.

Things that are carefully handled

In order to retain the original look and appeal of the photo, image processors have to consider some important factors very carefully. The features they need to remember always while photo restoration are- color contrast, light, shadow, image border, crop, resize, spots, dust, smudges, stretches, exposure correction, brightness, etc. Therefore, it’s needless to recommend that you must look for some experienced and expert image manipulators to tweak your old photos.

One of the most unique and fascinating features of image restoration is blind image restoration. There are many photos that have certain parts missing. For these kinds of photos, blind image restoration service is the only solution. If you have any picture that has its part missing, don’t worry. Just send them to any good image enhancement and restoration service and get the best output possible.
