RESTORATION OF A FADED AND TAPED PHOTOGRAPH
The photograph of Antarctic Oceanographic Research Ship USNS Eltanin bearing the imprints of the official seal and emblem.
The photograph was badly damaged and suffered from chemical discoloration, numerous tears, creases, missing parts and an attempted repair with clear adhesive tape, (which is never a good idea).
Restoration began with cleaning of the photographs surface and careful removal of the tape, followed by aproduction of a high resolution photo scan followed by digital retouching of the damaged areas.
|The imprints of the expeditions official seal were retouched and the smudges removed. Finally the image was printed on high quality paper matching texture the size of the original photograph.|
