Digital acquisition and graphic retouching
After the selection of the material by the user, it will be possible to request the digital acquisition of the images. The specialized staff scans the photographs at a resolution suitable for the intended use. The digital file can, if necessary, be retouched to eliminate any imperfections of the original (scratches, stains etc.) so as to obtain optimal quality for both small and large format prints. The material will be delivered, depending on the request of the user, as a file, or as a copy printed on plain or photographic paper (at a specific cost).

Selling conditions
The conditions and costs will be communicated via email and differ from the type of request and use that the images are intended to.
