How many old photos do you have in your family archives that seem to be damaged beyond repair? Ukrainian photo retoucher magician Tetyana Dyachenko would be able to restore them. She specializes in photo retouching and uses this skill to restore old photos. Thanks to her Photoshop skills and eye for detail, she gives new life to even the most damaged photos.

Tetyana deals with all sorts of damage in old photos. She fixes creases, smudges, stains, and even recovers missing sections. The final results are really impressive, regardless of the initial type and amount of damage.

Considering that some photos even have missing bits, Tetyana doesn’t only recover the images – but she recreates them, too. And she is able to retouch and recreate even the finest details, which give more depth and even higher value to her final work.

Pay attention to details on the lace of the dresses

What Tetyana does requires a lot of skill and a lot of work. Photos like this are valuable to all of us, reminding us of our family, its history and roots. So I believe that Tetyana’s restoration work is not only impressive, but also very valuable to the owners of these photos. Take a look at more of Tetyana’s work:

    I restored a number of old photos going back to the middle and late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Only a couple were damaged to the extent of some of the photos shown. It is tedious and labor intensive but the reward of the end product was worth it. I still have 2 large boxes to sort through and scan to digital so who knows what I’ll find but I will do my best to bring them back with love. Thanks for the inspiration.

      Thank you for sharing the story! When you finish restoring your photos, feel free to share the results, I’m curious to see them. :) I also did it a couple of times, but with photos that were far less damaged than these in the text. And it was still quite demanding.
