4 Ways Your Photos Can Get Damaged

BLOG TITLE

Photos hold precious memories of family members and special occasions like birthdays and weddings however, as time goes on they can become damaged and faded and need restoring in order to keep those memories alive.

In this blog post we will be talking about 4 of the main ways photos get damaged and also a few ways to prevent it!

Sometimes photos are neglected and as such can become tattered and ruined especially older photos which are not printed on as high quality paper which we have access to today. 
One way to prevent this would be to take care of old photographs as these are the prints that are most susceptible to tearing due to the low quality paper they were printed on. Store them in an album and keep them straight to avoid creasing.
You can see that these photos have large rips and tears in them leading to the loss of detail or even large chunks of the photo.
 
Cracks show up on photos when they generally are mistreated and neglected causing sometimes devastating damage. If cracks are left they could turn into quite bad tears and cause pieces of the photo fall off.
Just like with creases the best way to prevent this is to store your photos properly in albums and take care when handling and moving them around in order to preserve them. 
 
These photos have been brought to us with cracks in them. A lot of these cracks are going straight through the important details in the photo like faces.
 
Memories sadly, sometimes fade however photos are always there to help you remember. If these photos fade then your precious memories might fade with it. This mainly happens due to UV Rays from the sun which causes the discoloration and then eventual fading into white.  
One way to prevent this would be to try and keep your photos out of direct sunlight or by using UV resistant glass to keep those harmful rays at bay.  
 
You can see that these photos have faded, some worse than others however they all have discolouration and you can see how the details of the photo are slowly fading away.
 
Damage from moisture isn’t like fading or tearing as can happen a lot quicker and can do a lot of damage in very little time. This happens if a photo gets damp either through leaking or through high humidity and condensation. Moisture damage can also cause mould to begin growing on your photos. 
One way to prevent this is to avoid storing your photos in damp places and using photo albums with plastic holders as this could keep them from getting wet. 
You can see that these photos have been damaged by moisture obscuring details and in some cases causing the print to begin falling apart. 
 

These four types of photo damage are some of the most common ways that a cherished photo can soon just become a forgotten memory. In order to keep these photos from fading or falling apart we recommend getting them restored as soon as possible before the damage spirals out of control and that once cherished photo just becomes a tattered old piece of paper.

Pet Montages

Pet Montages

We all love our fluffy little friends whether they are cats, dogs, rabbits or even reptiles they all have a special place in the family.

In this blog we will be going over a few different styles of pet portraits which can be used for having photos of either multiple pets or multiple photos of one. 

 

Style 1

This style uses one photo of your pet, we remove the background on the photo and replace it with a beautiful neutral background to draw attention towards the pet who is the main subject of the photo.  We also brighten up your pets face so that their features are more visible and sharpen up the image. 

This type of montage is perfect if you only have a photo of a pet who may have passed away or you want individual prints for each of your pets. We can also add your pets name on the bottom of the print.

This style of montage is perfect if you have multiple pictures you want on your montage or multiple pets you want photos of.  We can also put the pets name on the portrait in a nice font.
