View Full Version : Help Fixing Old Photos??
08-16-2006, 02:42 PM
I have 2 photos that I would love some help fixing them since they have some cracks on the pictures.
One is of my dad, and his 2 sisters, one who is no longer with us. My dad is maybe 10 years old?
The other is of my grandmother when she is super young... my mom thinks that she didn't even have any kids yet.
I'd love to know if there's someone that knows how to get rid of these little cracks on the photo and help me restore it ... or if you know of a site that would do this??

I'd be willing to have a go at them if you send them to me at pcashmer at gmail dot com. Please don't zip them as gmail will not accept zip files. And if you haven't scanned them yet, could you please scan them at 1200 dpi? Will give me more to work with. Thanks!

I'll give it a go if you would like. I have done tons of restorations to photos. I actually like doing them lol. Here are a couple minor repairs I've done recently. I've repaired some extremely bad photos in much worse condition than these two. So if you'd like me to try just send the scans at the size you'd like them to be printed at but scanned at 600 dpi just for safety. You can use yousendit.com to send the pics to me if you'd like. PM for my email addy if you want to send them to me or if you have any questions...

Awesome restoration work Jenn!! :D
I don't have time to do any restoration work for anyone at the moment (although you've had some great offers already, so I don't feel too bad about it) but I love doing it as well. I've done quite a few for my grandmother as surprise gifts, I once restored and then hand-tinted an old photo of my grandfather and her reaction was priceless. Probably my favourite part of the digi darkroom. :)
