  • Kodak, 911, Restorations

    Just saw on the local (Buffalo, NY) 10:00 news, Kodak is restoring thousands of photos recovered from the WTC.

    Who was it here, that had a very similar idea for RetouchPro?

    I did a search on Google, but couldn't find anything. Perhaps it's not national news?

    I started a thread about possibly doing restorations for the families of the victims, if that's the one you're talking about. But it never took off. It's interesting to hear that someone's doing something along those lines though. Thanks for the info.

      Hi Vikki,

      I picked up a pictoral record of the WTC disaster today and cried over some of the images - I'm not very sentimental, but for some reason that horrific event gets to me every time I think about it.

      I found this reference to Kodak among vendors who contributed to the recovery and restoration efforts.

      In this particular article we will give you some of the highlights of Wtc/vendors.html. We all hope that you can actually search about Wtc/vendors.html here ...

      From that page, there is a link to a main World Trade Center disaster recovery page and there are several links regarding document recovery and restoration.

      For assistance with your WTC email account, please email [email protected] or call 325-574-7668; Your classes will be listed but may not be accessible until the start date of the semester. You can get book information by visiting the WTC Bookstore, by clicking the corresponding syllabus, or by contacting your instructor.

      I couldn't find any reference to that news item but I thought these links may be of interest to someone.

        I have often wanted to offer a deep discount or free rate for relatives of 911 victims who wanted pictures restored of their loved ones. I wasn't sure how to advertise this or what my process would be of confirming so people didn't take advantage - I think it would be a great project for a group like this to take on.

          There are certain things that a restoration artist might be expected to be familiar with, especially if a case went to court. I have been browsing through an old book I have titled "Conservation of Photographs" by Kodak (1985). I did know that daugerrotypes were extremely fragile, and shouldn't...

          Does anyone out there give "sprcials" or freebies to customers to promote your business? How do you handle it, especially since you really dont want everyone to think this is a normal business practice and thus be swamped with folks wanting the old "something for nothing" treatment....

          It's hard to find words to describe how the American people feel about the alarming pictures coming out of Iraq today. I'm absolutely positive that almost 100% of U. S.citizens are saddened by the actions of a few of us. It won't mean much, but I'd like to apologize to the citizens of the world for...

          saving crumbling albums
          by bravura
          Old albums I've inherited from my grandfather are falling apart. The photos are glued to the crumbling black pages. Is there a way to safely remove them so I can put then in a new album? There may be identifying writing on the backs of some of the pictures, and I want to preserve that as well.
