Photo Restoration

Posted by kymm on July 2, 2011 with No Comments

I really love doing photo restoration.  To me it is like preserving little bits of history.  If I can bring an old photo back to life, I really feel like I’ve accomplished something.  If you have an old image that is damaged by time, I’d be happy to work on it for you.  Even torn images can be brought back.

Photos dulled by time can be brightened up.

I will even fix modern images.  Don’t you hate it when vacation photos are ruined by wires and poles.  I can clean these photos up for you.

    • The Death of Creativity July 17, 2016
      It is not pretty, but I had to make myself finish it. I recently got a subscription to the Creative Cloud. So I had to play with Animate. I get really caught up in “getting it right”… so much so that I don’t do it at all. This is a message to myself to just […]

I decided that I need to create something, anything, so that I would feel that I am getting somewhere with the program.  The colors are weird […]

      In December 2009 I house/ pet sat for my aunt and uncle in Dixon California.  I had never been to California. Besides house privileges I also had the use of their Prius.  I was able to travel about quite a bit.  San Francisco, Sacramento, Sausalito, Redwood City, Calaveras County. It was an amazing time that […]
    • To Illustrate a Point October 21, 2015
      I’ve come to realize that I have been subscribing to Photoshop User magazine since 2009.  I was going through my collection and realized that I still have some of them in the plastic sleeves, never looked at.  Why have something if you are not going to use it.  In the April/May 2009 issue I found […]
