Here is an nearly 100 year old picture I restored several years ago. This picture was printed on thick stock...about 1/8". Apparently it was "folded" at some point, many years ago. Folding this picture actually resulted in it being physically broken in two pieces. I first tried joining the two pieces before scanning, but was not happy with the results. I ended up joining the pieces digitally after scanning them separately. The upper-left and lower-right corners of the picture were missing and had to be recreated. The photo was also badly yellowed as you can see by the partial right-side scan below. Next are the two scans put together, color corrected, before restoring. I spent about 15 hours cleaning up the picture. The original picture was about 12 x 10.
Here are a few more examples of past photos we have restored.
