Memories can fade

Like a lot of families, you probably have memories stored in photographs.  What happens when those photos become damaged?  Don't throw your old photos away.  Let us use our digital tools and skills to restore and even improve your family photos.  At Recapture Image Services, we understand how important these images are to you.  We recapture, restore, and recreate the memories that you have frozen in time through pictures.

We all have photographs of our youth or of our ancestors.  As important as these memories are, they often wind up stuffed in an envelope or placed in a drawer.  Old photographs are often faded, discolored or yellow, scratched, torn, creased, spotted, and stained - all of which can usually be repaired.  Pictures damaged by sunlight, fire, water, mold, animals, or even intentional damage done by people (i.e. pen marks, tears) can be restored.  If there is any image left at all, digital restoration can bring it back, often with surprising results.

Q&A

Can old photos be restored?
Yes of course, there is no age limit on what photos can be repaired.

Can you remove marks / writing / drawings on photos?
Yes, pen and crayon marks on photos can be removed.  

Can you repair a picture that is ripped into pieces?
Yes, we can put your torn pictures back together again into a seamless new print.

What about photos with missing pieces?
Usually missing pieces can be recreated.  However, if a person's face etc. is missing, it will be next to impossible to recreate a person's face from scratch.

What photos can't be restored?
We can fix just about any kind of damage.  However, photos where you can't see any detail (too white / too black) may not be repairable.  Also extremely blurry photos cannot be put into focus.  Some fuzziness can be improved, but if the picture is out of focus, it will never be sharp.  You can always send your photo for a free quote and we'll give you realistic expectations about what can be done.

Can you restore photos stuck to glass?
Yes, you can send the print with glass attached (in a well padded envelope/box).  We will scan it and work from the digital copy.

How long does the process take?
We pride ourselves on fast turnaround time.  Typically, you will receive the finished product within 1 to 2 weeks.

What photo sizes can you repair?  Can you restore 16x20 or oval photos?
Pictures of any size and shape can be restored.

Can you remove time and date stamps?
Yes, it will be like it was never there.

Can I get a photo restored from a newspaper, magazine, or yearbook?
Yes, however there may be copyright issues attached to such images.
