Photographs are a gateway to memories. They help us commemorate important events, celebrate life and cherish the bonds of family. Unfortunately, physical photos often bend, tear, warp, incur water damage, and become bleached by sunlight over the years. This wear and tear is reversible with the right digital photo restoration experts on your side.

Jonathan Fanning Studio & Gallery has over 14 years of experience in restoring old photographs and has experienced working on photographs as old as the Civil War. Our team restores your worn photos to their former glory by using state-of-the-art digital technology and our techniques. We first start with a high resolution scan using our professional photo scanner to digitize it and then begin using our special techniques to bring your photograph back to life by color correcting fading photographs due to sun damage or age, filling in damage spots, tears, bends, and cracks. When we are bringing an old black and white photograph to color, we will ask if the hair, eye color, and clothing color are known. If not, we will do some research based on that time period and how the colors have shifted to make a well educated guess.

The photo restoration specialists at Jonathan Fanning Studio & Gallery combine digital technology to repair those stained, spotted, torn, cracked, bleached and faded images of yours.

Don’t let those memories fade with time, let our experts bring them back to life.
