Prior to scanning we carefully clean your materials with a non-abrasive micro-cloth and filtered compressed air. Despite this, most negatives, prints, etc., will have some degree of surface wear, depending on age and previous storage conditions. These minor imperfections can detract from an otherwise flawless photograph. Our retouching artists can remove those imperfections, giving you an improved image that compliments your special memories.
Basic retouching includes but is not limited to minor dust and scratch removal, removal of minor tears, cropping, red eye removal, renewal of color or contrast, hue/saturation alteration, smoothing out minor facial lines, removal of minor skin blemishes or small scars, removal of minor circles under eyes, decreasing shine, removal of small objects, softening overall appearance, etc.
