My 88 year old neighbor has some awesome photos that have faded over time. It’s of our hometown and where we live currently.

Can they be restored for reasonable amount of money?

No negatives and I have no idea what analogic cameras are.

maybe the proper term in english is "analog camera", basically every camera wich isn't digital. Anyway, if your neighboor doesn't have the original roll or the negatives, maybe something can be done to refurbish the pictures, but not too much i think..

Scan the prints, and have a go at them in photoshop. That's one option.

Or, find a service/someone who can scan the prints, and go at them in Photoshop.

Sometimes you can clean up an old print pretty nicely, that way.

Don't have a clue what it would cost to pay someone to do that, though.

it shouldn't cost too much but the result heavily depends on the conditions of the picture.

I had a pic restored for my cousin by some company out in AZ, IIRC? My local photo store handled all that. I'm sure a bit of google search would offer up some options, IMO.

Seems like she paid somewhere around $60 for it? It was an old pic, something like an 8x10.

Good luck!
