By slowly introducing humidity into the layers of a photograph it can be uncurled and made pliable ones again. Quite often the process of humidification and flattening has to be repeated many times before a photograph becomes reasonably flat. Ones a photograph is flattened and dried it is scanned at high resolution to produce a digital file suitable for restoration. After the the photograph is scanned image is carefully retouched to remove any signs of damages, such as scratches of the photo emulsion, tears and rips. Color correction is applied to restore the original tones of the photograph.
