Below is a example of digital repair to a old and damaged black and white film print





    Image repair of damaged, torn, creased or water stained photographs




Below we see a 1950s  print from film format of a 6"x4" photograph ready to be worked on in the digital Darkroom.





Above is a very old Black and White low resolution photograph taken in 1959 on a old film camera.

The photograph has been transfered and reproduced onto digital media ( No negatives were available for this image)

it was  then heavily worked on in a modern Image Manipulation software package using digital darkroom techinques to

repair the creases and torn sections  and to improve the general background.

The resolution, contrast and brightness has also been synthetically enhansed in an attempt to improve overall image quality.

Whilst modern digital dark room techniques give us great scope to repair and save old black and white photos the end result

is often dependent on the resolution of the original image.


There are different ways to approach image repair, one is to scan the image into digital format but here I chose to Photograph the

original image using a 12 megapixel digital camera with the image placed inside a "Light-Box" .

The end result is similar to what you would achieve by scanning.





Stage 2 of Image enhancement .......(Damaged and creased sections repaired)  






(Above) Stage 3 of image enhancement ...(Clarify, Contrast and brightness has been applied)








  Final stage ..( Backround improvement and size cropping)









After Repair

The Final Image


Above is the  finished  repaired image, cropped and enhansed, plus the background now tidied up to  a acceptabe photographic level.
