    First, get high quality scans done of the images. You’ll want to do that regardless as to whether YOU can actually do something or not. If the issue is fading and the images are black and white, then the restoration is pretty simple – if you know what you are doing. It is too complex and detailed to explain here, but there are tutorials for photoshop that cover exactly this situation and you can Google for them. They are free. With some practice, you’ll get the hang of it. Even stains (depending on how bad) can be handled using pretty much the same techniques. Restoring color photos is a whole different game. You’ll need a professional for that. If you don’t have photoshop or photoshop elements, you can use Gimp (which is free for download) to do the same thing. Vance

    If this is a treasured photo do not give it to Walgreens. Go to a professional print lab. They probably do it there, or they will know of a place that will. It will cost a little more money but it will be well worth it- the quality will be better and the picture will be in safer hands.

    I lost some treasured pictures myself at a store just like Walgreens. All they did was offer me a free roll of film as a “replacement” for the negatives they lost. I was heartbroken.

    Go to a quality print lab. You won’t be sorry.

    Personal opinion only: any store that sends out original photos risks the chance of them becoming lost. The more people that touch the package the greater chance of them being lost or damaged. Rather than taking to a “send out” place, look for a store or shop that has in-house work done. It may be more costly but it cuts down on the chances of the original being lost.

    Scan the photo before sending it out for refinishing, and you will at least have the photo in your hands.

    I used Walgreen’s in a pinch and was delightfully surprised how nice things came out.

    They do the restoration digitally, so you’re original is still in tact. You could even have them scan it and take it with you so you can be sure nothing will happen to the original.

    I restored some photos of my grandfather from before he immigrated from the Netherlands. It’s amazing to see the before and after side by side.

    Good luck!
