Saving Old Family Photos.
Why do old family photos fade over time? It has everything to do with the amount of time they were left in the developer solution when actually developing the photo, as well as how the solution itself was mixed. NOT the actual age of the photo. Though light can play some havoc with images over time its more than likely the solution and the photographer that was the enemy here. Simply enough if the solution was not mixed in equal parts and or the image was not left in the solution long enough, the image will fade over time like the one you see here.
GrafXQuest can save your old family photos. as an example we wanted to show you what ten minutes of fixing can do to a life time of damage to an aged photo. The image on the left is from around 1850. As you can see it has more than its fair share of the sepia tone (under development) as well as fading, spotting (aging paper) and other damage. The one on the left is the original image scanned into the computer.
The image on the right is after we have touched up the photo and given it a ten minute over haul removing most of the age spots, scratched, and fading. We left most of the sepia tone as that's actually a fun desired effect and walla you can now actually see the the expression on Grandma Kuntz's face that we thought was lost forever. The best part is that now we have save this image with the fixes electronically so it is forever saved and never lost again. No more aging and now something that can be passed on for generations.
We can do this to newer photos too. Wedding photos with over and or under exposure as well as images that were taken with camera phones. A lot of them can be enhanced. What do we charge for something like this? Well what would you pay to get a priceless photo of Grandma back? Sorry you can't have Grandma Kuntz here but we can do YOUR Grandma and is that worth $20 to you? We start as low as $20 with a small 5X7 quick fix like the one on the right and go from there.
