Restore Photo

Easy, quick, convincing repairs...

Restoring photographs can be quite a job. Sometimes they're just old, but often they've incurred damage in other ways.

This section is devoted to helping you restore your photos. This means helping you reverse the effects of color fading, and teaching you how to repair cracks, tears, blemishes, blurred patches, and other forms of damage.

It really is possible to achieve convincing restorations. Take this photograph from my family album for example. Originally it was made up from two pictures, taken in about 1980. They were stuck together with sticky tape, and over 25 years they faded to the light red-brown color shown.

Below is shown the restored version. The image is now correctly colored, and the crack and sticky tape are no longer visible. Click the images to enlarge them, and take a look at the fine detail.
