The question is pretty simple:

Is photo restoration on topic on this site?


1 Answer 1


To me, the answer is a clear yes. Photo restoration is part of the broad domain of photography, just like the several print preservation questions we already have.

This isn't graphic design or image manipulation, and it's not how-to-control-my-software. In fact, the techniques used here are pretty specific to photography. And unlike, for example, camera recommendations, the questions are likely to be specifically answerable.
