Victorian era photograph of a young girl with her favorite doll was restored from a damaged, low contrast glass negative.

First, the original glass transparency was scanned at high resolution to capture all the details of the photograph. The captured digital image was carefully adjusted to preserve details in the shadow and highlight areas.

The restoration of the image included removal of scratch marks and filling in the damaged areas along the border of the negative. After the restoration of the photograph was completed the image was printed on fine art photo paper to preserve the richness of tones of the original image.
