Photo Restoration Tips
Can I Restore Photos myself?
Yes if you are thinking about trying to do Photo restoration yourself. But will you need the latest photo repair software to clean up your photos?
No you dont.
But If you want the best Software like adobe Photoshop, then you need to dish out Lots of money. If you are interested in photo restoration as a hobby, then look for less expensive programs.
First you will need to copy your picture. To do this, you will first need Restoration Supplies, equipment like a scanner to copy your original print.
But sometimes it's not possible to use a scanner to capture your old photos properly.
Because the photos may be too brittle to press flat, or three dimensional folds. Then using a camera is the only option but a very good camera is needed.
How can we Preserve Our Restored Photos?
One way is how we frame the photo. After pictures are restored and printed you will want your photos to last longer than the ones you have from the past now, then you need to treat them properly after you have them fixed.
So they may last another 100 years. One way is how we frame the photo.
The right way to do this is to use all acid free materials the best inks and papers we can get. And we need to frame the photo with a acid free matt placed between the glass and the print.
This does two things, makes your photo look nicer with the right choice of colors. Second and most important, it protects the photograph from damage. Glass should never ever touch the photo because glass sweats and will trap water inside the glass and stick your print to the glass, creates mold, and stains.
So the matt separates the glass from the photo.
Copy your photos
