Photo Restoration

What’s the best way to restore old or damaged photos? News stories that interview victims of weather or natural events almost always mention lost or damaged photos. Photos showcase important events in our lives and are often thought of among the most valuable items anyone can lose or have damaged. For paper photos, the older they are, the more likely they are to deteriorate, fade, and tear. Be sure to scan paper photos and backup your digital photo albums.

If you have damaged paper or digital photos, photo restoration repairs, corrects, and enhances photographs so they look like new (or better). Advances in technology make keeping your photographic memories alive much easier.

Modern Photo Restoration

Today, digital processing and photo editing software makes restoring old photographs much easier. For paper photo restoration, the photo is scanned and then both digital photos (like those in a smartphone) or paper photo scanned results are altered on the computer using photo editing software such as Photoshop. Photo restoration does not seek to alter the original image. Instead, your photo is digitally altered to create the image anew. Then, you can print it through any photo-printing shop or online service.

Photo restoration usually involves the following processes:

  • Adjusting the photo’s tone and contrast/li>
  • Repairing damaged or torn photographs/li>
  • Correcting fading and other coloring issues/li>
  • Enlarging and enhancing photos

Kneson Advances Photo Enlargement Interpolation Methods

For decades and even today image enlargers for both paper (printed from film) and digital photos make pictures bigger using math. Mathematical formulas calculate areas between pixels to be filled in as a photo is enlarged in a process called interpolation. The crude formulas are discussed in this video. They seemed logical at the time of their development but are rather crude today, and few companies have tried to improve upon them.

Kneson Software has developed advanced interpolation methods to enlarge image content with both smoother and sharper results than even Adobe© Photoshop. Kneson’s Imagener image enlarger incorporates years of interpolation method advancement and enlarges digital photos better than all photo software that uses the three interpolation methods discussed in this video.

Click here to read about the three additional interpolation methods developed by Kneson: Progressive, Progressive++ and Unlimited. All three methods are revolutionary in their advancement of the mathematical formulas used for photo enlargement interpolation. Read more about Imagener at www.imagener.com

Photo Poster Printing

Photo poster printingDo you want to make prints from photos you know others would enjoy but that are now only on your smartphone? The first thing to consider is cropping. Does the image that could make a perfect poster exist in perfect size and proportion? Often even the best digital images need to be cropped before they are able to make good photo posters ready to be displayed.
Today’s smartphone photos are the highest resolution ever. 3000 X 2000 pixels at 72 DPI (dots per inch) and greater images are common. With this much image information it is a simple matter to compress pictures to 300 DPI and then professionally printed. Such large images are perfect for photo poster printing with satisfactory results.

Many photo enlargement products and image manipulation software programs can ingest a large image at low resolution and compress it to a resolution acceptable for photo poster printing. Photoshop® is one such program but there are many. Simply load the image into the photo software and choose to give it a new resolution setting. Don’t worry about the actual dimensions as photo poster printing of the image may be a two stage process: one where you increase the DPI and the second where you set the image size. First change the dots per inch (DPI) setting. Most image manipulation programs including Photoshop® allow you to change the DPI.

The result will be a smaller image with higher resolution. Save the image at least at a DPI of 300 or above. If it is really large in physical size choose an even higher resolution so the preservation of such image will give you maximum options for its use and viewing in the future.

Next you should note the size of the image in inches, and the size you want it displayed on the wall or interior space you’re considering. This step may require specialty photo enlargement software as Photoshop® and other popular image editing programs are mainly used for altering the image contents, not changing their size. For example Photoshop® only provides a photo enlargement algorithm known as bicubic which is old and outdated.

Scan at DPI for Maximum Flexibility and Use

When you think about it and especially if you are over 35 years old, digital images are relatively new. For decades since the dawn of photography, photos were developed and viewed on paper and many still are. It’s interesting that a top selling product on Amazon.com is Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Film for the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera.  This shows that even in 2015 there are many people that find the printed picture has greater value than images hidden inside smartphones.

Millions of images in smartphones never “see the light of day” because they never get shared or printed.  Digital images shared on social media and elsewhere on the internet get “anonymously viewed” meaning that they are seen by people unknown to the originator of the image.  Printed images on the other hand get both “anonymously and spontaneously viewed” meaning they are viewed by those unknown to the originator and viewed when the viewer is in the proximity of the image often whether they choose to consciously look at the image or not.  Printed and especially enlarged images on display alter space and have the ability to change the aura and the psychology of people they’re exposed to depending on their content.  Images that are printed and displayed add value to an environment where people frequent that digital images stored on phones or hard drives can never realize.

Millions of images exist on paper from the pre-millennium era representing a volatile body of important content we should all strive to preserve.  This can only be achieved by scanning.  If you have images that only exist on paper it is urgent that you to get them scanned as soon as possible because paper images are volatile to loss.  This of course is especially true if you live in geographical areas that can have intense weather events.  Often the greatest sense of loss by those in hurricanes and tornados is reported to be paper photos that cannot be recovered.

New Versions of Photo Enlargement and Poster Printing Software Released

Photo enlargement newly released programAfter many years, Kneson Software has proudly released Imagener 3.0 and YottaPrint 2.0 to support today’s operating systems and improve functionality for those needing to enlarge images and print posters and wall murals.

Imagener is a software program that enlarges digital images without loss of quality and without pixelation: the effect that Photoshop(r) and other image editing programs produce when making images larger. Imagener also includes a “Resharp” function that allows images to be sharpened after enlargement.

YottaPrint is a printing program that uses the Imagener Unlimited enlargement engine to first make images bigger, then cuts the image up into panels to assemble on a variety of surfaces for huge image display. YottaPrint can allow poster printing or the creation of full wall murals.

Both Imagener 3.0 and YottaPrint 2.0:

  • Have vastly improved interfaces. Imagener in particular allows various components such as the Preview Window to be “torn out” of the interface, moved around and enlarged.
  • Are more compatible with modern versions of Windows.
  • Are more compliant with Windows 7 and Windows 8 interface elements.
  • Are more stable. Both Imagener and YottaPrint run more dependably under all versions of Windows.
  • Have simplified activation. Activating our technology became necessary years ago but has been simplified in these new versions.

  • Repairing damaged or torn photographs
  • Correcting fading and other coloring issues
  • Enlarging and enhancing photos

You can either use photo restoration software to attempt to restore the photos yourself, or various businesses offer professional photo restoration services for a fee. Always keep a copy of your photo before sending to a company or service.

Whether you are attempting to restore the photo yourself or bringing it to a business, you should scan paper photographs at a high resolution, usually 300 dots per inch (DPI) or higher depending on the capability of the scanner (click here to learn how to find the resolution of digital photos). Many businesses offer scanning, photo editing and digital alteration in a single package.

Photo restoration software should also be able to enlarge photographs so you can print them as posters, banners or even wall murals. If you enlarge your small photo without photo enlargement software, then the enlarged photo may turn out grainy and difficult to see. Part of the photo-restoration process includes bringing out the detail in the photo, removing irregular colorations, and removing grainy textures. Photo enlargement can assist with these processes. Once the photo has been enhanced, it is much better candidate for display.
