How can I send my photo to Animal
Image for restoration?
You can send your photos via Federal Express, UPS, or USPS mail (please use
certified or insured priority mail with delivery confirmation). I can scan prints,
negatives and slides, and will return them to you after the restoration is complete.
If you live in the Austin area I can personally meet with you to collect your photographs
If you prefer to hold on to your original print or negative, you can send
me a high-resolution digital JPEG-scan of the picture via email or on a CD. Please contact me for guidelines before you scan your
image for restoration. After a careful examination of the image, I
will email you a cost estimate before any restoration work begins.
Restoration estimates are based on the extent of computer time required to make
repairs and are calculated at the rate of $12.00 per quarter-hour (minimum).
Unless they are exceptionally damaged or compositionally complex, most photos can be
repaired within an hour, with colorization taking some additional time. The
turnaround time for single-image restorations is approximately a week (not including
Once the restoration is complete, I will email you a proof for final
approval before reprinting on your choice of archival paper or artist's canvas.
(Print prices are not included in the restoration fee. )
Discounts are available on restoration jobs consisting of three or more images,
as well as for public museums, historical sites, libraries and archives.
