What does photo restoration involve?
Restoring a photograph is all about enhancing and improving the original image.
The starting point is your scanned digital image. The first step is to repair any type of visible physical damage to the photo, like creases, folds and tears. Followed by removing any sorts of blemishes like scratches, marks, spots and stains. The final stage is to maximise the appearance by adjusting elements like contrast and brightness, colour balance, reducing graininess and sharpening detail where possible. The colourisation of a black and white photo, if required, is then undertaken after the image is repaired.
