DIGITAL PHOTO RETOUCHING,DIGITAL RESTORATION

After Restoration or Retouching job, customer gets back:

  • his untouched original;
  • AND a digital version of the retouched image
       (archived in JPEG format at the highest quality [least compression] on a disk);
  • AND an 8"x10" enlargement of the retouched image
       (or 4  3.5"x5" prints or 2  5"x7" prints).
       These prints are of high resolution, with continuous tonal gradation, and accurate color or monotone hue. They are indistinguishable from a photographic print made by the usual route (i.e., with photo chemicals and light-sensitive paper).



    LONGEVITY -- Our digital prints are done on Epson Photo 1270 printers and meet or exceed archival standards for print permanence as put forth by the Wilhelm testing institute. A typical print from this printer will have a non-colorshifting stability (that is, before any shifting is noticeable by the unaided eye) of from 9 to 26 years, depending on the paper substrate. This does not mean that the print will no longer be "viewable" at this time; it only means that the image tone, color or contrast may start to change after this period of time.

    *** We offer a 10 year limited warranty *** against fading or color balance degradation of the retouched prints you get back from us. Should your retouched print start to fade, discolor or you notice a change in contrast, send it back to us for verification (also including the disk), within 10 years, and we will reprint it free. No one else gives you this peace of mind!


  • Here's what some of our
    customers have to say:

    "I received the pictures today at 10:30.
    What a wonderful job you folks have done with it. I am very pleased, and know my Aunts will be too.
    I will be taking one of them to work tonight to show to the person that is thinking about sending a picture to you as well."

          -- Karen Fesler, St. Cloud, FL   See her photos




    "This is top notch work. You not only preserved the detail but fixed the tonality of what I could only describe as a nightmare of a shot"

          -- Ben Weller, Oshkosh, WI

    About sending unsolicited large files by e-mail:
    In a few words, DON'T DO IT. Sending huge files by e-mail slows down and virtually hijacks an e-mail program for the duration of the file's download from the mail server. It's not unusual for 15 to 20 minutes to elapse before the recipient knows what the file is, and meanwhile he can't use his e-mail! So please, limit the size of the files you send us for any reason (be it restoration estimates or for direct printing of your own images), to 100KB in JPEG format. If you want to send a larger one, please ask permission first. We have now adopted a program which detects the size of files coming in, and we have set it up to automatically delete from our server, before we even download it, any file larger than 250KB, so we won't even be able to see it.

    RETOUCHING
    (for professional photographers who need special work done on prints, negatives or transparencies):

    Prices are determined after careful review of customers' originals and consideration of work requested.

    Jobs here include cosmetic retouching ("airbrushing") of blemishes or other defects on model shots or portraits, moving or removal of undesirable elements (telephone poles, wires, bad reflections, etc.), or in general, any modification imaginable from any film format.
