The restoration price is largely based on the amount of time it will take to restore. This depends on several factors & considerations:
A small photo won’t need as much work as a large one so the size of the photo or the amount of enlargement required is a factor. A big enlargement will enlarge flaws you wouldn’t normally see that will need attention.
Amount of Damage
The amount of the photo that is damaged. A clean tear will be simpler than a large amount of creasing and staining. Our main technique (to put it simply) relies on “painting” damaged parts with good areas. The less “good parts” the longer it will take.
The amount of detail in the damaged areas of the photo is a factor. A crease across a plain sky is straightforward. A tear across a large group picture is not. Damage to the eyes is particularly time consuming as they are a critical part where our view immediately goes when looking at someone.
Heavily faded photos require a large enhancement to revive the contrast. This also “enhances” any flaws and damage so there may be more work involved than initially thought. Often on faded colour photos the colour information is too damaged to revive so colour tinting work would be required.
