Do you have some photos that you love but have maybe become damaged over time? Perhaps there’s water damage or a tear? Well, now there’s a new service available through Costco Photo in the warehouses that can fix all of that damage and more. Unfortunately, this service is only available through the warehouses and not through the Costco online photo center. I’m assuming you need to do this so you can explain what the problem is if it isn’t obvious. There’s a whole range of ways that this new Costco service can improve your photos and all of them are pretty amazing.
You can visit the online Costco Photo Repair webpage to get more information about the service and watch the video demonstrating some of the before and after photos. I think you’ll be pretty impressed with some of the changes; I know I was. I am most impressed with the photos that were overexposed that they can fix but also with the ones that have real damage, like tears and missing parts.
It’s amazing to me that they can fix those up and have them looking like someone just took the photo yesterday. But they can do much more than that too. They can remove tattoos or blemishes, remove backgrounds, selective colorization, and even make you look thinner. Here’s a list of all the things they can do to enhance or fix your photos:
- Add or remove a person
- Selectively colorize a photo
- Remove weight, tattoos or blemishes
- Recreate photos any way you like
- Enhance your canvas print
- Restore faded photos
I’m not sure what all is involved in the restoration process, because they don’t give much detail about anything like that, but for $29.99 you get your photo fixed and a 5×7 print as well as a DVD for future prints or uploading images online. So if you have old photos that need a bit of restoration, or maybe a new photo that you would like to have enhanced or fixed for a photo gift, this might just be the perfect service for you.
At this time it seems that this service is only available at Costco US locations, but I’m hoping it’s something that they can offer to other locations soon.
