Can PhotoBridge save a collection of mediocre family photos?

Has anyone used FotoBridge
to enhance and digitize old photos, and if so how would you rate their services? (Asking for a friend.)

My friend has a large collection of prints of family photos (no negatives or digital copies) that are poor quality (dark, etc.) but that she has kept for sentimental reasons (two of the family members in many of the pictures have passed away in the last few years). She has tried taking them to other photo enhancement services at local camera stores with extremely poor results. I was skeptical that there would be much one could do without negatives, but then she found FotoBridge, which seems to provide what she's looking for. Does anyone have experience using them? Can you trust them not to lose your photos (this is really the most important thing)? Do they actually do a good job? Is it possible to make specific requests about individual photos (e.g. removing where a date was printed on the front of a photo, cropping a particular photo a certain way)? Is there a better service or better way of doing this (outside of investing money and time into buying and learning Photoshop, which I realize seems like the other obvious answer)? Any thoughts much appreciated.
