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…

Photography is Incomplete Without Good Retouching

I firmly believe that in today’s world photography is incomplete without good retouching. Our industry has changed so much over the last few decades that ignoring retouching is equivalent to believing that learning the intricacies of composition is unnecessary. Am I wrong? 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.

No, that’s not the case at all. Firstly, back in the day there was something called the darkroom. In that magical place images went through pretty significant changes. Today we have Photoshop and other photo-editing programs which allow us to make adjustments in a far…

Difference between image formats (JPEG, TIFF and RAW)

JPEG, TIFF and RAW are image file formats that nearly all DSLR cameras can use. Beginning cameras typically only offered JPEG file formats, but now most of the DSLRs can shoot in JPEG and RAW simultaneously. And only some high end DSLRs offer the TIFF format as it’s the best among all three and most of the professionals prefer this. Continue reading to learn more about each type of photo file format.

JPEG
JPEG is the standard image format in digital cameras, especially inexpensive point and shoot cameras. JPEG uses compression format to remove some pixels that the compression algorithm deems unimportant, thereby saving some storage space. The compression will take place in areas of the photo where the colors of the pixels repeat, such as in a photo that shows a lot of blue sky. The software inside the camera will compute the compression level at the time the camera saves the photo, so the reduced storage space occurs immediately, saving space on the memory card.
