Technical Info

To produce the best results for our clients, a high-quality original (either good scan or hard-copy) is ideal. Old photographs/artwork come in all shapes and sizes – so we can help you decide what final image or photo size will yield the best results.

The best procedure in figuring out what size image you need is to contact us and tell us what the original media is. Is it an 8×10” photographic print, a negative or slide, an image captured on a digital camera? If so, what kind and how many megapixels? Once we know the file size information, we can determine a good size for your printed image so as not to lose image quality.

Before any digital restoration work is started, we will collect information about your digital or physical image. What size do you want the final print to be? What kind of borders, if any, would you like: small, medium or large? Perhaps you would like a textured background for your image. Do you want your photo printed as a sepia tone, black and white or in full color? All photo/image restoration jobs come with free custom layout, ensuring that no matter how you display your image, it will look amazing. Do you already have a frame for your photo – if so, what are the dimensions of the glass in it? What are the outer frame dimensions?

We have extensive, hands-on experience dealing with a wide variety of professional image retouching & restoration projects, so just tell us what you want… and that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Scanning Services

Don’t have your image or photo scanned? Simply send us a hard copy of your document, photo or artwork and we’ll scan it for you, then return it in its original shape, along with any prints you may have ordered. We recommend sending your original via USPS registered mail, FedEx or UPS so you can track it along the way.

All scanning services are included for FREE with our digital restoration/retouching services. If you don’t feel comfortable sending the original, you can easily scan it yourself by going to a local FedEx Office or UPS Store. The staff there will be able to help you.

If you plan on scanning an image/photo yourself, please scan as a high-resolution color file even if the original is black and white or sepia-toned. A full-color file yields more options for the digital photo retouching stage. If you are scanning an old document with text, doing so as line-art will give you sharper results (especially with the text), but will be a black & white file. In this case – with an old document – it is best to scan individually both as color photograph and line-art, producing two files. You can save both files as JPEGs at maximum quality (12). We can later copy elements from the grayscale image and paste them onto the the color file, giving you the best possible results.

Scan at 300 pixels per inch (ppi) or dots per inch (dpi) – highest quality setting if ppi or dpi is not visible in the scanning software. If you have questions and would like us to walk you through the process, we’re more than happy to help.
