About This Class

what will become of all the pictures that are being taken today? Here is the reason that 99% of the photographs being taken today are soon going to be totally gone – digital images are no longer important enough to most people to actually keep them in printed form! 

Yes, I started in a film only world. We bought a roll of film and took our vacation photographs. We had them developed and printed. They were put in photo albums or photo boxes. We looked at them and cherished those memories with great care. They were a slice of our life and for many, if disaster struck, those photographs were the one thing we would try to find first. Wedding albums and photographs represented our LIFE and we salvaged all we could. In time those prints start fading and some get damaged. 

These heirloom prints need to be restored, printed and archived for the next generation. There are four segments to this course.

  1. How to digitize photos to restore.
  2. Restore faded photos.
  3. Restore medial damaged photos.
  4. Restore heavily damaged photos.
  5. Restoring badly torn photos.
