What Is Digital Photo Restoration and How Does It Work

Digital photograph restoration is the process of restoring the appearance of a digital copy of a physical photograph which has been damaged because of environmental causes or simply affected by age or neglect or any other reason.

Digital photograph restoration uses a variety of image editing techniques to remove visible damage and aging effects from digital copies of physical photographs. At Uretouch we use professional software to repair the appearance of the digital images and add to the digital copy of the photo where pieces of the physical photograph are torn or missing. Evidence of dirt, scratches, and other signs of photographic age are removed from the digital image manually. Unwanted color casts are removed and the image's contrast or sharpening may be altered in an attempt to restore some of the contrast range or detail that is believed to be in the original physical image. In addition image processing techniques such as image enhancement and image restoration are also ap…

I want this article to promote conversation. We live in a world where we’re allowed to have our own opinions and I’d love to hear yours in the comments at the end.
Photography Industry Has Changed, Or Has It?
In years gone past, before digital cameras and Photoshop, when photographers didn’t make significant adjustments to their photos, photography was pure. It was better. People knew what they were seeing was real and as a result photography was better.
