DIGITAL RESTORATION OF A TORN DOCUMENT

Digital restoration of documents provides an opportunity to bring back even the most damaged pieces. This document dating from 1899 was torn in four parts, showed fading and discoloration, had missing parts and sections were covered by adhesive tape. To restore it to its original appearance, a high resolution scan was made of the individual pieces which were then assembled into single digital file.
     
After the pieces were aligned digitally and joined together, all the seams were carefully retouched and the missing parts were copied from the undamaged areas or painted in. Finally, the overall colors and tones of the document were adjusted to restore it to its original condition.
