We can bring your old, damaged photos back to vibrant life

restore and repair old photos, no matter how damaged your old photographs are

Even if you canít find a negative for those great old photos, Chrisí Camera Center can make really good copies. We can also make the new photos different - better - than the originals.

Yes, the photo above is an actual photograph that was restored at Chris' Camera Center in Aiken, South Carolina, for our customer Sheila T*. As you can see, it had been folded and actually torn in half. She was thrilled by the final results and so were we.

We can even repair large tears, or extract one person from a group. We can take your "ex" out of the photo. Sepia tone or black and white or color. Faded color? We can fix faded color.

Using a combination of camera technology, computer technology, and skillful human artists, weíve become true specialists in making your photos all that they can be.

Your priceless photographs never leave our store.

Here's what we do:

We photograph or scan your original image with a high resolution system, to create an "electronic negative." All the restoration work is done on this electronic negative - we don't do anything to your original.

Your project is assigned to one of our top-notch Photoshop artists. She will correct color, improve contrast, touch up blemishes and repair major cracks or even missing portions of the picture. The latter part is pure art work, and you'll be amazed how good our artists are!

When the art is complete, we'll make high quality photo prints on one of our dedicated printers.

Can you scan a photo and send it to us?

You can, but we'd rather you didn't. We have both the equipment and the experience to do a better job than most of our clients,

Is it expensive?

Like all creative work, it's more expensive than mass production. Most restorations cost $65 including a CD copy for archival purposes and your first custom print up to 8x10 inches. Additional copies are much less expensive.
