RESTORATIONS – A Restoration is a Photoshop Process in which aged or damaged photographs are scanned or photographed with Digital Imaging Equipment and brought into Photoshop for recovery, restoration, and/or enhancement and enlargement.
NOTE (REPAIR COMPLEXITY VARIES) - Restorations are somewhat time intensive – (depending on the quality and condition of the original Prints or Film).
FREE IMAGE ASSESSMENT - Before a Restoration Job is accepted or started, I have to do an assessment of your image(s) [THIS IS A FREE ASSESSMENT], in which I look at the quality of the Negative or Film Slide or Print or Digital File to analyze condition, repairs needed, and what can be done with the images as a final print or other final output – during this process, we discuss the size and way in which you want the image(s) to be reproduced [whether you want to keep them the size of the original(s) or enlarge to 11x14 or even larger].
SCANNING & COPY PHOTOGRAPHY - Restoration Services may require Scanning of Negatives or Positives or Prints and/or Copy Photography in order to create a Digital File of proper quality and detail to be brought into Photoshop and enhanced/enlarged - this may increase the costs of the Restoration.
ART CONVERSIONS - Art Conversion(s) is a service in which your Film or Digital Photographs (taken by you or someone else) are converted to Digital (if not already digital files) for enhancement and enlargement via Photoshop in order to be printed for your wall, for folios, for books (such as in the case of family history, a vacation or road trip, or other collection of personal images), or for other products (such as image cubes or jewelry).
NOTE (TEXT/INFORMATION CAN BE ADDED)- When ordering products, please consider any “story” text or other important text(s)/information for providing context or Date and Time, names, etc. to your images (Please thoroughly consider any vital information that is relevant to your images that are being Art Converted and/or Restored [I have over 1,000 unique fonts to choose from (handwritten, calligraphy, Hollywood/noir, etc.) for customizing and most appropriately complementing your images with these text entries].
NOTE (ABOUT PRINTS) - Printing of Images is not included with the hourly Photoshop rate.
