Leona B. "LB" in Seattle, WA (February 2009) " PixSavers Removed a large white crack and I couldn't be happier.  They did this work promptly and
I wouldn't hesitate to use them again."

Marti M. in Seattle, WA (September 2009) "You did a great thing, I really know you are an artist."
Donna S.  (Jan. 2010) "I called PixSavers as they had many Five Star reviews. He got the picture exactly right. He is an old school perfectionist. His
work is meticulous and professional at a fair price. Considering the great quality, price and ease, I am very satisfied. I would recommend PixSavers."

BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS:
Photo Artistry is an unblinking focus.
If there's no watery eyes, its not work.
Everything-art is a layered composite.
Digital art tools are same as manual.
Photo parts break down with spots in
mostly dark areas but corner to corner.
Enlarging photos will enlarge the spots.
There's a faint spot on the tip of the nose.

< 5th Set: Photographer's Shadow is Seen in Photograph
client's request:  "take his shadow out of that photo"

Before and After:  
The photographers shadow to be removed.  Purse in arm remains.
We need to take away the shadow, make the blouse white again, yet,
we need to redraw the ruffles onto blouse.  We can free-hand mouse draw.
Re-drawing ruffles is tricky, taking away a shadow is bits at a time tedious.  

Next the cracks, scratches, tears need to be taken away and color replaced.
Our customer was particular about her hair-color - wants only a tint of color.
In the photo our customer is 19.  Today she is in her 50's and happy now.  
She remembers the grass was so green but not as faded as the photo.
She remembers the color and wanted that color back.  We did it.
Airplane: 1941 P47d Thunderbolt
Motorcycle: 1947 Norton ES2
Flight Jacket: 1942 USAF locker gear

< 3rd Set:  Plane, Pilot, Motorcycle, Combo;
Professional Free-Hand with Mouse-Draw;

This is the Squadron P47d Republic Thunderbolt Bomber.
The "shack date" was their 'bomber girl' a pilot's own pride.
Each had their own - hand-kissed for luck just before flying.

This "shack date girl" was painted by Irving Klaw in 1943.  
The model was Betty Page, a celebrity-model up to 1955.
In 1956, Betty Page turned to religion and became a nun.  

Our Photo Assignment
Our client named his buddy "cigar man" (for his cigars).
He's the same guy on the far left in the task-photo, above.
Cigar-man would hand-kiss "Betty" every time he flew.
Cigar-man was to be pictured with Betty on his motorcycle.   
Client's request:  "Make sure both are seen just as well."
His motorcycle needed to be proportionate to the plane.

He and his buddies all work together on a very large farm
in Eastern Washington, where their planes spray the crops.

For students:
These photos are from old "green-film" products, not B&W.
The green-film was cheap in it days, cannot match today's.  
This is not composite vector position formatting technique.
Experience, talent, patience, careful planning is needed.

We have tutoring classes available. Call Steve to Sign up.  

About the Plane and Motorcycle:
The airplane is a 1941 P47d Thunderbolt, WWII Fighter
The motorcycle is a 1947 Norton ES2 "Bull" - rare now.  
The flight jacket is USAF Government issued locker gear.

Ovals
< 4th Set:  1907 Oval, Grand-dad was 9, and a Coach, and a VP
               
Task:  Free-Hand-Mouse-Draw a Round Soccer ball

This 1907, the boy is a 9 year old grandfather.  In his day he was soccer player, a
soccer coach, and VP of Florida Soccer Association. Today his granddaughter is.
She is a soccer player, a coach and new President of Florida Soccer Association.

Our client told us, the soccer ball is out of the picture - the ball needs to be there.
At his feet we drew a soccer ball with free-hand-mouse and we can draw a circle.

Grandfather has glue on the hair.  We can redraw his hair with a mouse-draw.
Shoes and soccer ball were mouse-drawn.  Any fading can make lots of spots.
Spots are mostly caused with the flaking of chemicals as it peels off the photo.
The black oval border is from a time when plastic was used for framing seals.
The oval was converted to a rectangle upon request.  We raised its contrast.  
This photograph is actually 5X7 and brighter. Spots in dark are seen well
Our client requests the wall be "washed", its wall plug deleted, centered.
Digital tools will wipe wall shadows and dark, delete the hanging tassel.
We cropped, top and bottom to a square. Center the boy as requested.
Our owner requested this get our included quality team inspections.

BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTO SUMMARY:  
These Timeless Tintype Photographs followed genealogy, respectfully from 1839.
As tintype specialists we know their history, possibly their origin, how it was taken.
Photographers had a knob for their head to rest upon and a lean-table for stability.  
This one had scratches, spots, was faded to a dust color, with hardly an image left.  
Still as experts, we are able to restore tintype which have faded to almost black fade.
The original photographer painted a gold ring on the child's index finger in humor.
Perhaps he thought it would be a joke. The client wanted the ring taken away.  
Tintypes need to be digitally mastered with advanced knowledge, high resolution.  
We are specialists, advanced student instructors for antique tintype photographs.
Patience is needed to repair tiny scratches, spots, to reproduced the photographs.  
A real family face emerged from the ash-grey image as we pulled out color in it.
Ferro-types were hand colored in its day, as the photographer would patiently daub
the image with color from the head of a pin.  In a close-up zoom, we saw this detail:  
worn surfaces on the foot rungs of the stool, and in more detail, we saw his folded
socks which couldn't be seen otherwise as we made them more prominently
seen.  We cleaned, repaired, reconstructed this photo top to bottom.

ABOUT TINTYPE FRAMES (left)
This is how a tintype frame looked.  Leather-bound backing, leather-hinge, metal
all around the inside and front - it's a metal picture inside of an ornate brass frame.
Engineering abounds as its corners were folded over to 'hitch' with the brass frame.
On the left side of its "book" it had an over-stuffed velvet pad which hid a lady-mirror.
The mirror was used for polishing a lady's face with a velvet
make-up powder-pad.
On the right side was that brass (gilded) ornate brass frame linking the photograph.
Many of them were taken out of its frame as children played then broke the picture.

Welcome to the World War-2 Airforce 388th Squadron. The left, #2 guy is a mechanic, not included among pilots.
It's a tricky laying project that takes patience, stamina, a stead hand and a focused eye.  You will be amazed at the amount of work involved.
For our students: a perfect natural look is strictly for professionals.  Example, our photo specialist can free-hand mouse-draw round circles.  
This takes practiced talent. It's not for beginners wanting commercial orders.  Basic Photoshop tutoring classes are available for beginners.
