We’ve all come across old photos of family and friends only to find them showing the effects of aging. The usual problems result in fading, discoloration, and often times cracks that appear in all the wrong places. Disappointment and sometimes heartbreak can create a sense of loss that can’t seem to be recovered. This happened to me when my brother found a picture of our grandfather all decked out in his Sunday best in a remarkable pose. I never knew my grandfather because he passed away when I was just a year old. The picture said a lot about him that made me wish that I could have known more about him and his interests. The condition of the photo wasn’t too bad but it definitely needed some attention. After sitting down at the computer and reworking the photo to correct all of the signs of aging, I ended up with a photo of my grandfather that is now as good as or better than the original. This got me to thinking that there are photos like mine in every family. Wouldn’t it be nice to dig out these treasures and have them restored so future generations can enjoy looking at the past without being disappointed with the quality of these photos? Most of us have these pictures stored in shoeboxes where they never see the light of day. Saving them in an archived restored digital format for easy access and printing can be very rewarding.
