25th Set  1970's Rockers

BEFORE & AFTER
This Polaroid was inside a pocket and inside a washer..
The red couch color has red-bleed, destroying eveyrhing.
Each item was carefully worked as we kept the red couch
intact, changing all other colors back to normal. Their hair,
jeans, dress and dog isn't red anymore.
It was cropped at the bottom. They were entertainers and
are still hippies 40 years later.
27th Set  The Store
BEFORE AND AFTER
Zoom into this photo.
This is a faded photo.  
Underneath each fade are
age spots, need correcting.
These take time to clear all
of the spots, streaks and
things on the floor that
was there.  
Tuned down to dark brown
sepia, it looks real good.

BEFORE PHOTO (ABOVE)
A rolled banner-photo, found at the bottom of a old box, this photo was
broken into 11 folds and broken pieces.  We scanned it carefully, then  
digitally manipulated each piece to connect and seam them together.    
Additionally, there were 6 fissures in between the 11 broken pieces.  
Each crack and broken line had divided the faces, bodies, legs, shoes,
and each of those cracks were making the uniforms dimmed in shade.
Each brick in the street was divided by the cracks, broken into pieces.  
Even the dirt from the unpaved street areas had divided rocks where we
needed to mend each crack and crevice that divided each man's face.  
AFTER PHOTO (BELOW)
Although the pieces divided all these parts, each part needed to
be replaced by another.  Shoes and parts needed to be redrawn.
Lines in the bricks needed to be straightened pixel to pixel, and
each uniform needed to be reconstructed, whether white or color,
each cap, each collar, arms, eyes, noses, and throughout it was
a slow process. This restorer had freehand mouse-drawn all of it.
This was an historic banner photo for this Navy base to archive.
The Navy wanted to preserve a history of their medical corpsmen.
The Navy customer had 350 photos to restore including this one.
< 19th Set  Poster
35"x55" Canvas Pic

BEFORE AND AFTER

This family thought big when they placed an image on a canvass poster.
But, there were parts missing, mainly people, parts of a head to be exact.  
We redrew, brushed, reconstructed, the people together to get their heads
complete.  This is a very difficult piece of work because the texture of the
canvas create shadows to confuse the artist. We needed to work with
hundreds of cracks, rips, tears, missing parts, and after team inspections,
we finished this work for delivery.  Posters are rare, on a textured paper,
similar to canvas but not really, printed on a 60" wide Design-Jet printer.

AFTER PHOTO  (BELOW)
We fixed intricate parts of cart mechanisms and under-carriage.
Light and dark streaks were on everything, needing it all rebuilt.
Each horse, man, truck, and wheel of a truck was worked intricately.
It'll be darkened some, to be seen through a glass museum frame.
It's too bad that we need to make a watermark over the best parts.    
BEFORE PHOTO  (ABOVE)
A historic photo, sun faded in a frame in an office, frozen in a
panoramic are horse drawn, engines and ladder trucks.  It has camera
streaks over most its detail.  Our challenge is to rebuild each brick of
the building per each streak to make the streaks consistent to another.
Each brick, block, mortar is worked  individually to original condition.  
22nd Set  This is Stuck to Glass

BEFORE AND AFTER
Notice the bottom where a yellow pattern
makes swirls in the field.  This is where
the water traveled.
It sticks like glue.  The yellow is on legs
of the players and uniforms.  
Faces disappeared in the water.

Wet pictures can be brought back,
only if they are restored right away.
You cannot procrastinate with this.

23rd Set   It's Stuck on Glass

Orange flecks on shirt, face, feet.
Water damage  lost Donald Duck.

Donald Duck was 65% destroyed.
We free-hand-mouse drew Donald.
Our artist can mouse-draw, circles.

Attempts to remove a photo from a frame can
break the glass without trying or a slight touch.  

Wet photos will stick to the glass when a photo is
near a window, an outside wall, damp attic or
basement, then moisture collects in the frame.

Cold air pulls moisture from a metal window-sash.
Hang pictures on inside walls away from windows.
21st Set   8x10 Photo Stuck on Glass
BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
Stuck to glass, they glue to the glass and then rip easy. His head was most important.
The suit is camel-hair which is rarely worn in a wet climate - ironic for its wet damage.
The owner was concerned with shoulders, tie, color but the pinstripes could go away.

There was some free-hand-drawing in places to maintain authenticated objectives.
The owner worked with us making sure his points of concern was maintained, intact.
All throughout a project we take great care of handling every wrinkle that comes along.
At end, our customer expressed much delight, happy to write a permission to display.

26th Set  Oil Painting, 18X24

BEFORE  
A painting of a boy on a saddle on his horse is a personable painting.
Methods of recovering a painting is totally different. It involves heating,
stgeadh hands and steady brushes as it is restored by hand with
re-painting.  But this image was request ed to be done digitally.

AFTER  
You cannot see lots of age spots throughout this beautiful painting.  
We were asked to keep stripes of the shirt, while fixing its problems.  
Paintings have a different method which does not include software.
Museum quality paintings are repaired with heat and paint brushes.
We can fix these paintings but because our photo industry has lots
of quick ways to fix a painting, we can do this digitially and print off.
It was cropped to bring the image forward closer.

24th Set  Drummer with "the
Dreaded Red"

BEFORE AND AFTER
It faded to a red photo. In 1970's film
the colors would seep rear to front.
This chemical was too much inside.
Kodak had reds, Fuji had greens.
Under the red color shown here, are
spots, cracks.  The original size was
3X3.  The owner wanted a 5X7 size.
The boy's father is a well known rock
musician in Seattle (drummer).
PixSavers BBB Business Review
We don't colorize. We only pull out original colors.
The red in this photograph bled from brown to all
components, including the rug she's sitting on.  
The hair, the dress and her skin was determined
while working our master color mixer, hues, tints.
According to its owner we have the hair correct,
and the dress was correct but the sweater was
remembered as green. Red came back easily, so
we made our red, and the owner's green,
sweater.
The rug was not red but shows that as the original
bled red all over.  This is the type of fade that can
fool any color mixing engineer.  
We made a red sweater version
then a green then printed both.
The owner agrees it could have
been either color. We trimmed
the color bleed from the belt and
hand, corrected print-marks from,
other photos, made blue eyes,
printed two 8x10's, green & red.
The owner is very happy.
