Examples of Photograph & Document Restoration

All photos and graphics used in a Family Memory Treasure project are automatically enhanced. Some images need further retouching and restoration, to remove scratches and tears, more detailed color correction, cropping, straightening and even editing parts of an image out or in. Sometimes this is fairly quick and easy to do, sometimes it requires a more careful and meticulous approach.
