RESTORATION

Restoration specialists at Photo Darkroom combine artistry with technology to repair stained, torn, cracked, faded and water damaged photographs. Unwanted people or objects can also be removed from an image. We handle all formats of film including old or odd sized negatives and transparencies.

Working from a digitized image and using modern technology, we help to erase the effects of time.  The original photos are never worked on.  Only the digitized copy is restored. Your original materials are returned along with your restored images.

Estimates – No Charge

Each photo restoration is unique and requires different treatment.  Your work is thoroughly evaluated in order to provide you with a quote. With severely damaged images, we may make an initial scan to allow us to properly evaluate the work involved.

FILM TRANSFER

We transfer VHS, 8mm, Super 8 & 16mm movie film to DVD. The effects of age and wear can significantly deteriorate your film, making them dry and brittle. Transferring the content of your family movies to DVD will help to preserve them for future generations. Our technicians carefully digitize your film frame-by-frame.  This reduces the flicker effect that plagues so many other transfer processes.  Plus, we transfer Super 8 with sound. 

VIDEO TRANSFER

We handle most video formats: DVCAM, MiniDV, DVD, VHS, Hi8, HDV, AVI, QuickTime, and MP4.

B & W FILM PROCESSING

We hand process all B&W format films.  We are one of the few remaining Labs in the nation to do so.
