    Hi, In order to get the best results you may need to upgrade your scanner. I scan quite a few glass plate negs and have found that 2300 to 3200 dpi 16 bit greyscale produces the best results. While scanning and then inverting is an option it is better to use...

  • To avoid irrevocably damaging the photos, take them to a Conservator who specalizes in this type of work. Attempting to clean old photos without training and supervised experience will usually result in severely damaging the print or, at the very least, increasing the image layer cracking, decreasing...

  • The best course of action for you to take would be to have a Museum Conservationist or someone with in depth experience and knowledge do the restoration/cleaning for you. It is all too easy for these types of photographic media to be irrevocably damaged by using the wrong techniques/chemicals and so...

    Gads my good fellow, how is a shiftless type suppost to make ends meet without the occasional shameless sniveling and pathetic appeal to those better off than him or her self?

    Roger, Exactly correct. As the technology of digital restoration continues to advance, the opportunities for mischief, either intentional or unintentional increases as well.

    Roger, Anytime an original photo is displayed there is deterioration of the image due to UV light, humidity, temperature. This is a well documented fact.
