Digital Vintage Photo Restoration – Before and Afters



RESTORE us to yourself, Lord,
 that we may return; renew our days as of old -


It’s been a few months since I’ve been able to publish my posts several times a week as I have done for the past several years.  Life has been a bit ‘Complicated,’ to say the least.  I have been very busy, but have not been able to do the creative things I love to do and share them with You.  I did think that I would share some of the projects I have worked on – in between the other necessities of this strange time of life.

One thing I have been able to continue to do is my Digital Vintage Photo Restorations for various clients.  I will share just some of the Many that I have done in the past months here and there.  I use Photoshop Elements 10 - and sometimes I also use Perfect Effects Free and Perfect Effects 4 - to work on the photos after scanning them into my Macbook.  Here are some Before and Afters -  I’d love to restore some for YOU – or someone You might know who needs my services.

(NOTE:  I am quite disgusted with Blogger today.  I have worked for Many hours to make this post and it will not keep things lined up as I have them!  Please excuse the way this post has come out.  I apologize.)

 This was the only photo a friend had of her parents from long ago.  Now she can see them better!

 This was a very large framed photo from many years ago.  It had darkened considerably with time.

This 8 x 10 photo had been damaged in a flood and was stuck to the broken glass in the ruined frame as you can see here.


 I restored the photo, printed it and the verse that had been at the bottom, and reframed it for my Client.

 For this one, I removed the legs of the people on the left, cropped and lightened the photo.

My Client wanted her father removed from this group photo.  I cropped him out and repaired and extended the curtain behind him, also removing the people behind him.
