It even fixes bad photography!

The color correction technology in our scanner is amazing to say the least.  Old, faded photos that I scan come out looking fresh and colorful.  I love how easily we can restore old images.  So one day I was scanning some of my own personal pictures, and came across some from when I lived in Jamaica.  I was there serving a two-year volunteer service mission for my church.  We had made friends with a really fun Rastafarian who went by the name “Honey Bee”.  One of his trades was that of a wood carver.  I had hired him to carve a beautiful plaque for my wall back home, which was a map of the island, and had my name on it.  I took this picture of him so I’d remember him.   Of course this was 15 or so years ago, I didn’t realize until I developed the film a couple months later that I’d done a horrible job shooting a poorly lit scene.

I went ahead and washed it through the software to see what would happen, and just like that, it looked a LOT better!  So not only can we fix old pictures, but we can fix some bad photography too!  Sorry, we can’t take off the extra 10 pounds the camera adds…
