This client restoration project was to scan and restore an original glass negative created in 1899. The original size of the glass negative was approximately 4.8″ x 6.3″.  The glass negative was scanned at 1600 dpi for a 77.6 megapixel working image size. Exactly 7715 x 10063 pixels. Although the glass negative was in very good overall condition – the scan revealed cracking, deterioration, and chips and scratches. ( as seen in smaller detail images. ) This is the restored version in full size. Note: How high resolution scanning even shows the grain in the original negatives emulsion.
