Examples of Picture Restoration

During this project we have had submissions that have come in very badly damaged. With a variety of graphics programs and some very good artwork we have been able to overcome some very large obstacles and restore most of the photos.

Some photos needed more work to be restored than others,
here are a few examples of the results.

Some of the hardest work is trying to restore faces and details that are so badly damaged that it takes lots time and imagination to complete. Here is a Battalion photo from 1943 that displays exactly what we mean by both terms.
