Hi, thank you for bringing your question to Google Answers.
This is a big business on the Web and first I will provide a few links
to do-it-yourself image restoration sites just so you can learn
exactly what is done ? an educated consumer is a consumer who gets
what they expect from a business. This will help you decide between
the various vendors and the many services they offer.
Image restoration basics
As requested, here are companies in the business of restoring digital

Google Search Term
Services range from simple red eye removal to scanning of hard copy
images, fixing cracks or missing corners, restoration or addition of
color, and combining multiple images in one print.
Since there are often multiple contact points, I haven?t provided
complete mailing addresses for all the businesses. You will want to
look at each Web site to narrow down the choices before contacting
Since prices can easily exceed $100 per image for multiple
professional repairs of a single image, you might also want to
consider purchasing inexpensive image restoration software and trying
this yourself if you have a number of images to process.
FYI, although I don?t do this as a business for others, I am a
photojournalist and wanted to let you know that many of the more basic
restorations such as red eye removal can be done almost automatically
by relatively inexpensive software or even free software included with
most digital cameras.
If you feel that this work is beyond you for the images you have or
you simply don?t want to bother, you can probably find local Photoshop
students or photo editors for magazines or newspapers who will be
willing to work with you.
Be sure to check the guarantees of the online services, and you should
perform a Google search on any business before you contract with them,
you are almost certain to find some links to customer ratings from
places such as www.pricegrabber.com.
