Digital Restoration

Image manipulation can be achieved in a large number of ways and for a broad range of purposes;  Most of our clients come to us with imagery that has a particular value – be it sentimental, historic, artistic or monetary – and wish to either restore,  enhance or recover their original appearance.
This process can be applied to analog images ( film, slides) digital images and reflective (prints) that you own and the result of this process can be later printed and/or stored in an archival manner.
