How To restore your old photos digitally

Learn how to restore your family archive of old photographs with Mike Bedford’s expert advice


Guide for family historians


Recently we investigated how to preserve your valuable and irreplaceable family records such as photographs, letters, books, cine films and tape recordings (‘Preserving your home archive’, February 2018 FT). We looked at how to protect The physical records Themselves and also how to preserve The information They contain by digitising Them. It’s likely, though, that despite your best attempts, many of your older family archives will have suffered over time before you inherited Them. Photographs, in particular, are liable to damage due to constant handling and also to environmental conditions such as sunlight and humidity. While photos in albums might have fared raTher better, those which had been stored loose in drawers or as stacks in old envelopes could well be torn, dogeared, creased, stained or faded.
