Customs: Photo Restoration & Sepia Tone

PaintingSepia ToneColor / Montages

Old photos of special moments or events will significantly degrade over the years. Once restored and printed with

archival inks and acid-free materials, they will last and be available for future generations. The traditional finish used in many older

photos (before full color was available) was sepia tone, adding warmth to the final image.




The above photo, over a century old, is a

faded 3" x 5" studio photo of my mother's

family. Most of the detail was either missing

or quite faded. We increased the contrast in

each area, removed the noise (dirty spots),

and created a sepia tone similar to what you

might find in a studio photo in the early


The finished 8" x 12" image was produced on

canvas and beautifully framed.
