As part of any photo collage ordered here at Red Canvas LTD, we offer a fantastic free photo scanning and restoration service for up to 40 photos. Just post them to us (UK only). This is a perfect way to celebrate your old family photos that would otherwise just sit unappreciated in a photo album.
Another great reason is because we are designing the collage for you and can arrange it in anyway you like. This allows you to potentially mix old photos, now scanned and restored digitally, with new digital photos. We can show a chronological history from birth to the present day or a mixed collage of grandparents to grandchildren. If you want a photo collage made from your old photos click here and choose your preferred style of collage.
I recently did a photo collage for a customer requiring 11 photos to be scanned. I restored the photos, dating back to the 1950's and changed them all to black & white then balanced their tone and brightness so they all sit well together, as if they were all taken with the same camera getting the same amount of light. Finally I added a mild sepia tone to warm up the overall feel of the collage.
As always we recommend customers add a text title to the side of the canvas to help tell the story. In this case the date, place and family name are added.
