This Hotpot AI service restores pictures by automatically performing scratch removal, face enhancement, and color sharpening. What used to require trained professionals hours can now be accomplished in seconds.
The service repairs both color and black & white photographs.
While this service automates photo restoration, it cannot replace experts for demanding restoration jobs. It is designed to help consumers with lightweight requirements while helping professionals save time on difficult restoration requests.
For this service, pictures are not saved without user permission. For storage costs and user privacy, we only retain images for as long as necessary to run our machine learning models, and do not store photos beyond this.
Note: the maximum image resolution we support is 1280x1280, but our new model supports larger images and is launching soon. Please contact us to try this newer model.
