Once Upon A Time ... Photo Restoration

Original Photograph

Once upon a time ...

     There was a beautiful woman who got all dressed up in a beautiful dress to go to a military ball with her Prince Charming.  A photograph was made and put away into a photo album so that sometime down the road she and her children and her grandchildren could all look at it and see the beautiful dress and know what a special night it had been.

     Unfortunately, the photograph was placed in one of those albums with the sticky pages and plastic page covers ... which eventually turn yellow and will not let go of your photographs.

The original photograph was only about 2 inches wide, pretty small.  It was sent to me to see if I could make it a little bigger.  So this is what I did.

Restored photo

I cleaned it up, dropped the old background and put in a new one more appropriate for such a regal lady.   And then ....

Color Tinting
I color tinted it. 

I love this restoration. If you need to have an old photo restored please email me for details.
