THE PHOTO RESTORATION
The various steps of photo restoration and digital photo retouching
The scanning procedure of the original photographs is one of the most important steps to ensure the good result of the photo restoration and digital photo retouching.
If the photo is very deteriorated or with particular problems, it may also be necessary to proceed with a professional photograph of the original image, since the scan can produce, in some cases, reflections that can disturb the photorestoration.
The next steps concern the photo retouching and the actual restoration, the correct exposure of the images will be restored, the damaged photos will be “cleaned” in order to eliminate scratches, stains, and if necessary the missing parts will be restored, this it is the procedure that takes you more time, since in some cases the aim is to completely redesign missing parts.
