Restoring old photos, like reminiscing with old friends, brings back fond memories and uncovers hidden sources for old nicknames like "mop top" or "grayscale." Bring the past back into focus with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of digital photo-restoration services at Beyond Digital Imaging.
The cyber photo wizards at Beyond Digital Imaging scan old snapshots and bring them back to life to file in a DVD library or reprint in their perfected state. With the help of their digital equipment, the picture doctors can restore faded Kodachrome, correct for water damage, or inject color into black-and-white film. Once the portraits achieve the envisioned vibrancy, they can be sent through to one of several printers, taking physical form on photographic paper, watercolor paper, or stretched canvas or as the tattoo on a loved one's forehead. Trap images in a semiconductor and take them home on a DVD for screen-assisted viewing. Beyond Digital Imaging does all its work in-house, eliminating any problems associated with delivery to a remote location, such as damage or losing thousands of words in translation. An average customer pays $25–$40 for image services.
