Achieving The Best Results

When scanning your photos, we prefer the image size be in the 2560 pixel range in length, or higher. Please don’t send images above 4,000 pixels in length – which may be difficult for our software to open.

The Bottom Line: Send us the best you are able. Sometimes all you have is an old snapshot. We’ll do our best to improve the pixel density to give you the best final product we can create.

Images saved as Jpeg or Windows Bitmap are the best for us to work with. Tiff is also fine, though these files tend to run very large.

The better the clarity of your original is, the more lifelike your colorized image will be. We can improve the clarity of your image, restore yellowed images to original black & white, and remove major scratches. However, a crisp original will always yield a better colorized image.

The Helpful Photo Colorizing Service

We’re here to answer your questions, assess your photos’ image quality, and help you pick the best candidates in your collection for successful colorization. If contacting us via email, we encourage you to attach scans of your photos for us to review.
