JW Designs is a subsidiary of Linux.bz, the people who do these websites! I,
Judy Wilson, in addition to having a great time doing things for our websites,
also restore old photographs and tint them if desired. This page has some
examples of my work from years past.
This page is several years old, and will be updated when I can make time for it!
This is a photograph of my husband, Jan, when he was about 9 years old, in
1953. It was the first photo I ever color tinted! At that time I was using
Coral PhotoPaint. I used a tutorial I found on the web and struggled and

This is the photo I used when I was learning to tint. It was real challenge
doing each Easter egg separately. I love the results (upper right)!
I had a customer whose mother died, and they had no pictures of his parents
together. On the left is the photograph he brought me with his parents on each side

The final copy on the right was printed 8 X 10 and hangs in the living room of my friend
in a big elegant frame.
This photograph is the mother and little sisters of a man who wasn't even born
at this time! Part of the face was missing and it was tricky replacing it, and
getting the coloring right because of the light. The original was large, and
most of the picture was intact, so besides the face it just needed spot
restoring, except for reconstructing the lattice on the right!
A customer had a photograph of her cousin when she was little, but she was
blocked by a boy in front. It's the only photograph that exists of her when
she was very young. So I managed to remove the boy, and I color tinted it,
keeping in the flowers to give it a little more color. Click on it to see the
