ASSESSING THE DAMAGE OF YOUR OLD PHOTOS

Old photos are often not only faded, but also have stains, spider cracks, holes and other types of damage that can range from minor to severe. Restoring such images involves assessing the damage before refining your photo in order to have a restoration plan to fix the damage of your precious memories. 

At yesterdays we map-out a restoration strategy before engaging works to understand the degree of the damage across and if the damage affects vital areas of the photo such as faces, eyes, or dominant elements in the photo composition.

This means that there are photos easier to restore than others, therefore by evaluating the damage of your photo we can categorise the restoration as:
