Photo Restorations

Unfortunately accidents happen; however if they happen to your photographs… the good news is that it isn’t the end of the world. Most photos can be restored.

At Dowd Studios, Inc. we perform all kinds of restoration services for our customers. The only thing we want to make perfectly clear is we can’t fix the original photograph. We can only photograph it and digitally edit the damage away,.

There are levels of damage from minor to level 3 severe. We handle all cases for you and when the work is done we give you a CD with the enhanced image as well as help you preserve the original damaged photo… so you can keep the original on hand for sentimental value. All of our work is fixed by hand.
