Frequently Asked Questions on Restoring old Photos:
How large can I make a small photo? - Usually a small image (passport size 2x2) can be enlarged to about 5x7 sometimes and 8x10. If the original is larger, the photo can be enlarged further to 11x14 or larger, if it is a sharp original image. It is usually best to snap a photo with your mobile phone and email it to us for advice and a quote.
Do I have to scan the file or can you do it for me?
unless you are highly skilled at scanning a photo in 600 - 1200 dpi, your photo can often be reproduced better with the high-resolution copy made with a professional camera - it depends on the original and if the original photo has a texture to the paper. Call for more details. Our studio is located in Agoura Hills, California just outside of Los Angeles.
Can I email you the photo or do you need the original? - if you are able to provide a high enough resolution, sharp duplicate of the original we can work from that file (prefer over 2 MB file). if not you can drop off the original at our studio in Agoura Hills, California and we can make the professional duplicate for you prior to retouching or colorization. We understand how precious your original is, and we will take tender care of your special memories.
Can you make the print, and do you offer framing? - Yes, we offer archival quality prints and canvases and we offer custom framing so we can complete your photo restoration job to perfection for you, recovering treasured family heirloom to better than their original luster!
Do you ship the final product and can the original photo to be restored be emailed to your studio? Yes and yes! It is usually easier to ship a canvas than a framed photo (due to the glass). Call for more information. (818) 991-7787
Digital Restoration services only - I do not repair original artwork, I copy it first (re-photograph, or scan) then create a duplicate of your original, and repair the damages or add new enhancements to a new copy for you. I sometimes get asked to repair an older original - I would recommend you look for a museum quality restoration service that handle delicate, specialized archival work.
