Photo Services

Photo Repair & Restoration

We understand that out of all the services we provide, photo repair and restoration is the one that means the most to people. Often we receive photographs in a very fragile state, sometimes faded into almost nothing, sometimes in many pieces. It's our job to provide the best possible reconstruction of that photo for the customer.

We take great pride in our work, working on the pictures for as long as it takes to produce the best possible photograph. The greatest reward is the reaction from the customer when we show them the restoration, we have had smiles, laughs, hugs and some tears. We are very proud to say that everyone has left a happy customer, anything less and we wouldn't have done our job properly.

We have repaired photos with various types of damage including:

          • Creases
          • Missing corners
          • Fading and discolouration
          • Mold spots
          • Rips and tears
          • Water damage

          Photograph restoration. We have removed the green crayon, restored the ripped corners, repaired the cracks and corrected the colour cast.

Photo damaged with fading and cracks

It can be hard to see exactly how detailed our restorations are, be assured that we repair as many of the smaller creases and marks as possible whilst still keeping our prices competitive.

Please find below a close up view of the above image, the main area of damage to this photograph was where the protective finish had aged badly and started crinkling and cracking, as can be made out from the close up view below. It can be quite tricky to fix these problems as they create a fine mesh of damaged photograph over a wide area.
