Preserve the Pictures of Your Family’s History
Think about those albums, boxes, or drawers full of old pictures from your childhood, passed down from your parents or grandparents. Those photographs contain precious images of life long ago -- perhaps the only visual reminders of people, places and events that shaped who you are.
Looking through them rekindles memories of days gone by, and reminds us of the faces we love and the experiences we cherish. Those are memories that we want future generations to be able to share as well. But the images of those memories are fading away – literally! The papers and chemicals that hold those memories won’t last forever. Exposure to light, heat and humidity, even time itself, gradually destroys the prints. One day they will be faded and deteriorated beyond recovery.
If you don’t take steps now to save the images contained in those pictures, they will be lost forever.
NexGen Images can help preserve the memories. We capture the images from paper or film and help you save them for future generations. By digitizing the images the fading and decay are stopped in their tracks. And once the images are captured, our advanced image processing technology can often recover details that are no longer visible in the paper pictures.
With your new collection of digital images you can preserve those precious memories of the past for future generations, providing a connection to the people and events that otherwise might be lost.
NexGen Image Preservation Services
Our experts, using advanced tools, provide results sure to delight future generations!
We digitally capture your images at high resolution, then inspect each one to ensure the image is faithfully captured. We return your digital images to you on a USB flash drive, along with your originals.
After digitizing your source material, we use state-of-the-art image processing software and AI-based tools, to clean and restore the original look of the images.
During this processing, we clean and sharpen the image, and remove most minor artifacts, such as spots and small tears. The retouched images with newfound clarity are returned on a USB flash drive, along with the originals.
NexGen ENHANCED is usually sufficient to preserve your images. But, if your cherished photograph is really damaged, we can usually repair it, overcoming damage resulting from age, handling or poor storage conditions. We repair damage, such as scratches, wrinkles, and cracks, as well as stray marks and mold spots. If the picture is extremely damaged we'll first examine it and then talk with you about the possibilities and provide an estimate of the cost to fully restore it before beginning work.
Oh, and if you have old, black-and-white photos, our AI-based software can colorize them, providing a more life-like view of people, places, and events.
Your images are returned on a USB flash drive, along with the originals.
