Photo Digitization and Restoration
We scan or digitally capture your photographs, slides or negatives and restore or enhance their image quality. Using Photoshop, digital images can be edited or manipulated using a vast array of creative techniques. Photo restoration includes image optimization and the removal of red-eye, scratches, tears, or discolouration.
High Resolution Image Capture
Images are captured at resolutions up to 18 megapixels. We offer uncompressed RAW format, or we can optimize images to your specifications in a variety of formats including: jpg, bmp, png, tif, gif, psd, pdf, or eps. Images can be custom printed in a wide range of sizes up to 30″x40″. ¹
- Photograph Prints (up to 8″x10″) –Digital Captures from 89¢ each
- Large or Mounted Photograph Prints – Digital Captures from 2.89 each
Slides & Negatives

Each high resolution image capture is manually reviewed and adjustments are made to correct or improve quality. These may include: exposure, colour balance, sharpness, contrast and cropping.
Photo Restoration & Manipulation
Using advanced Adobe Photoshop techniques, archival or damaged prints can be digitally restored. We can remove typical blemishes like scratches, stains, rips or discoloring. Also the digital image can be manipulated to add or remove individuals or objects. For example, utility poles and wires are erased or someone can be added to a group shot, even if they weren’t there. Since each project will have varying degrees of complexity, most originals will require our inspection to provide a work estimate.
After digitizing your images, they can be programmed for video playback as a slideshow. We can add transitions, effects, titles, and an appropriate sound track. The appearance of camera movement is created with subtle zooming and panning. Slideshows can be designed to play on your TV or projector from a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Converted to an MP4 digital video file, your slideshow can be copied to your media library for viewing on computers, mobile devices or Apple TV. Upload your slideshow to on-line services like YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook. Most clients present their slideshows at special events and memorials. We can set you up with a projector, screen, monitor or sound system appropriate for your chosen venue. For details, see AV Rental Equipment and Tech Support.

“While working with art dealers in New York and Toronto to find buyers for my paintings, I was advised to publish a catalogue of my work. The publisher referred me to KAV to take digital photos of my collection. The photo quality is fantastic and they look so good in the book. Great work KAV – very professional!”

“Re: Anniversary Slide Show. I expected something touching and beautiful and moving..but what I got was 100 times better!!!! You can actually multiply that statement 14 times…we were 14 to view the DVD, and everyone had the same reaction. Amidst the tears,the laughs, the smiles, the OHHHS and the AWWWWS, everyone thought that it was the most beautiful gift. Everyone could relate to the memories, the souvenirs….and I will cherish that moment forever.
Mom & Dad have since viewed it so many times….they were so happy!!!! Kevin, you created a masterpiece for our family…we will treasure this!”
