About us

We are a group of professional photographers. We started our photography careers in the analog age. We had years of slides, negatives, and old tapes that we wanted to convert into a copy to last forever. After investing into the technology and marveling at the amazing results of restoring our history, we built RESTORE.photography to provide a service to others who have a legacy to restore. There is no need to spend hundreds on small boxes to ship your bulk products for restoration. Our simple pricing plan makes any volume of media affordable and easy to transform into digital. Our purpose is to restore your history at an honest price.

The quality in an image can be measured in dots per inch (dpi). Slides and negatives captured at 72 dpi give a good picture that is web quality, similar to a picture shown in social media sites or other websites, but the quality doesn't meet requirements for a quality print. Professional photographers take pictures at 300-400 dpi and the same is recommended when scanning photographs.

The size of a slide and negative is about 4 times smaller than the photographic print it is used to make. To assemble the best digital quality, a resolution of 1,200 dots per inch (dpi) is excellent for reproduction of the slide/negative. More dpi will return a better quality print, it also will result in a very large file. A resolution of 72 dpi is satasisfactory when using the scanned image online like in a website or social media. Scanned slides or negatives are scanned at 1,200-6,400 dpi to make the best possible image for printing. High resolution scans include correction from scratches and some defects.

When scanning prints, a quality of 300 dpi is similar to the quality used to print professional photographs. We offer scans between 300-600 dpi. Higher resolution available upon request.
