Restoring old photographs

  Buchan 35 19:31 04 Jan 2005

I read somewhere that there is a computerised way of restoring old, dog-eared photos.
Do any of you know of it and if so I need a name and address to send the photo to. Can you help please?

If you have a Computer a Scanner a reasonable printer and one of any number of photo editing
software packages You can do it.

However if your are not up to it

Take it to your nearest branch of Jessops

A lot of picture shops will be able to do it for you, tried it myself but my scanner just isn't good enough, ended up going round my local photo shops till I got one that could do it.

Unlikely I realise but if you live any where near Chelmsford, Essex. I know someone who does it the old fashioned way (without a computer)and better results. If you are interested I could give you his telephone number.

Hi, I do lots of these for OAP friends on my pc using Photosuite - very easy and a lot of fun.
I am in Southsea, Hampshire. If you are anywhere near me?

ps - if it is only 1 or 2 I could do them for you,
no charge.

If you want to, I invite you (only) to contact me via Yellow Envelope.

Just rang your number (pressed 5 for ringback),
if you are on pc with dial-up I will have to wait till you go off-line ? Cheers.

I did this with a very old and tatty photo of my Grandfather taken during the 1st World War.

I scanned it, then worked on it for hours in Paint Shop pro, removing the blemishes and then colouring it.

Haave a look:
