Old Damaged Photos Wanted!
« on: Tuesday 17 March 20 23:16 GMT (UK) »
As many of us will have time on our hands due to enforced staycation, maybe it would be a good time to sort through those old family photos that maybe could do with a bit of a face lift, or maybe a touch of colour. This would give the restorers something to do as the photo board is very quiet at the moment.
Over to you  ;)

I was wondering the other day whether I could maybe ask photo experts if they would be able to work on an old 19th century black ink sketch of my grandfather's uncle.  He looks nothing like my family but as his sister was my grandfather's mother there has to be some likenesses somewhere.     By using their imagination with colouring skin, hair, etc.

My grandfather and his offspring all had fair skin, light coloured eyes and (to me) this sketch doesn't imply that colouring, but it might to an artistic type.

Looking forward to any response.

Go ahead Rena, it's worth a try as more detail may be revealed with a good scan.

Well, if you're just begging for work ....  A general sprucing up would be appreciated.  I'll put them over on the photo board. [I can't give you better scans, though].

I have some 35mm slides (negatives).

How can I deal with these. Do I need to have them printed as positives, or can I scan them as negatives and post them?

We can invert them and turn them into a positive image.

Good thinking Carol, I for one will be going into solitary confinement for four long, long months. I shall be stir crazy without something to do in this time.  We would love to see your long forgotten photos of your ancestors for us to clean up and maybe add a bit of colour. If it's at all possible we can work better with a good scan and there is information on the photo restoration board how to achieve this, but if all you have is a copy that somebody has sent you, we will do our very best. Thank you everybody. :D :D :D
