Repairing Digital Photographs


Repairing of photographs is a very easy process these days. If you are looking for professional services in repairing digital photographs you just need to upload the digital files online to the service providers accessible online. But on the other hand if your old damaged photographs of ancestors or other black and white photographs are to be repaired, then it becomes necessary for you to first convert those photographs into digital files by scanning. Only digitized files can be worked upon by the various photo editing and graphics software like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

While scanning the old photographs there are a few things you will have to remember. It is not necessary to scan always with the highest resolution always. While removing photo graphs from albums if you find any problem seek professional help and avoid damages to the precious photographs. It is also better to use cotton gloves while handling the old photos.

“Dpi” or dots per inch refers to the photograph,s image resolution. Different resolutions are needed depending on the size of the photographs. Following dpi settings are advised while scanning old photographs.

  • Photographs below 2 x 2 inches – 600 dpi
  • Up to 4 x 6 inches – 300 dpi
  • Beyond 4 x 6 inches – 100 dpi

After scanning the photographs different collages and montages are possible besides photo repairs of the following types.

  • Replacing missing parts of photo
  • Colorization
  • Enhancement of images
