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 applicable for the purpose of digital photograph restoration.

One main advantage of digital photo restoration is, it’s not possible to restore the physical photo and it can be only done in case of digital photos. By restoring the old images you can give life to your photos and save memories for longer period of time.

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.
