RESTORATION OF FADED AND DAMAGED PHOTOGRAPH
The official photograph of Antarctic Oceanographic Research Ship USNS Eltanin taken during of expeditions and bearing the imprints of the official emblem. The photograph was badly damaged and suffered from chemical discoloration, numerous tears, creases, missing parts and an attempted repair with clear adhesive tape (never a good idea). Restoration of this photograph began with production of a high resolution 1200dpi scan followed by digital retouching and removing of the damage.
The imprints of the expeditions official seal were cleaned and the smudges removed. Finally the image was printed on high quality paper matching the size of the original photograph.

Photograph of Josephine Carlisi, a victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire is one of the images restored for HBO documentary film "Triangle: Remembering The Fire" dedicated to 100th anniversary of that tragic event. Particular attention was given to preservation of the authentic look of the image while careful reconstruction of the facial features brought back the appearance of a young and beautiful woman who among many others perished in the fire on March 25, 1911.

Thanks are also due to Sebastian Wintermute who offers outstanding photograph and document restoration services in New York City. I entrusted Sebastian with the task of scanning and digital repair and enhancement of the few photographs I have of my Chester grandfather’s WWI life, along with other photographs and documents from my mother’s collection. He did not disappoint, and I am now able to share these precious documents in restored digital form with my family and others. The black and white photographs in this essay reflect his work.

In my Mom's belongings I found a picture taken in Romania that was so damaged I couldn't decide if it showed my Dad or Grandfather. Sebastian managed to restore it so that all of a sudden I had the clearest picture of my dad as a young man (as I have never known him). I can't thank Sebastian enough - he did an amazing job! - Tzahi

It's nice to know that people are happy with the work you do :)

Last year Sebastian was extremely helpful with organizing and digitizing our family archive of thousands photographs, letters and documents going back for over hundred fifty years.
This Christmas my husband and I wanted to do something special for my father and asked Sebastian to use one of the old photos for the holiday card. Sebastian took care of everything. He made a perfect choice of selecting one of my favorite childhood photos of my father riding atop of a fire truck pedal car, helped us to select the design, retouched the photograph, and using Shutterfly service had the cards printed and delivered right on time.
I highly recommend Sebastian for any archiving, family history or photo restoration project you may have. - Brenda M.

RESTORATION OF A FADED VICTORIAN ERA PHOTOGRAPH

Victorian era photograph of a young girl with her favorite doll was restored from a damaged, low contrast glass negative. First, the original glass transparency was scanned at high resolution to capture all the details of the photograph. The captured digital image was carefully adjusted to preserve details in the shadow and highlight areas.

RESTORATION OF AN OLD POLAROID PHOTOGRAPH
With time many Polaroid pictures become discolored, cracked and curled. Scratches and tears may result in separation of layers that cause further damage to the image. Such Polaroid pictures have to be restored with extreme care. Since attempting to scan a photograph in such state of distress may result in poor quality of image and in worst case, further damage and even destruction of a photograph, first step in restoration has to be humidification and flattening of the photograph.
