Photo restoration is the practice of restoring a photograph which has been damaged by natural, man made, or environmental causes or simply affected by age or neglect.
Digital photo restoration
Digital photo restoration uses a variety of image editing techniques to remove visible damage and aging effects from photographs. Raster graphics editors (see list below) are typically used to repair the images and add to a photo where pieces are torn or missing. Dirt, scratches, and other signs of photographic age are removed from the photograph manually, by painting over them meticulously. Unwanted color casts are removed and the image's contrast or sharpening may be altered in an attempt to restore some of the contrast range or detail that is believed to be in the original image.
