From Our Customers . . . . . .
mother-in-law, Betty Jean Stansbury, was quite
the artist. I never had the opportunity to
meet her since she has been deceased for 31
years. My husband, John, had an original piece
of art work she had given him when he was
a child. It was stolen out of his house years
ago. Over the course of the past several months,
I was able to track down an original piece
of art work she had painted that his brother
had in his home, had it digitally photographed
and emailed to me. I presented the photo as
an attachment to an email to Tom Forrest.
said the original print must be in terrible
condition because the photo showed water marks,
streaks, etc., which I was not able to see
on my computer. Tom and his expertise cleaned
up the photo, enhanced the size and brought
the picture back to what the original art
work looked like - as if it were freshly painted!!
The picture you see on the left is the result
of the beautiful work Tom did - and, of course,
my very surprised husband on Christmas morning!
I want to thank you, Tom, from the bottom
of my heart for the incredible work you did
in helping me surprise my husband by restoring
a piece of his childhood that will never be
forgotten! May God bless you.
Many blessings from a very happy customer

COMMENT . . . . . .
work has made it possible for me to preserve for
my family and the families of others, several generations
of photographs that were faded and lost forever.
These photographs have now become part of a genealogy
project that have been working on for some time.
In addition, the repair techniques you have used
on torn, damaged and faded photos, bring to life
figures that would have otherwise been lost forever.
We appreciate and recommend to others the work you
have done for us.
We do not copy present day studio photographs or copyrighted
material without a completed copyright release from.
