Photo Restoration, Photograph Retouching and Photograph Manipulation
You may not realise there is a problem until you take a look at your photo collection after many years of storage. Our precious photo collections are in fact fading away and in time may well be beyond recovery. There is also the possibility of loss or damage in the case of fire or flood for example.
It is a good idea to restore your special photographs or even entire photo collection in order to stop the unavoidable deterioration that will take place no matter how carefully the photos are stored. Once restored, the photos can be stored and shared on CD or memory stick as well as long-term safekeeping. Once you have digital copies you needn’t worry so much about further damage because digital images do not degrade.
The restoration process improves the quality of the original photograph – by removal of spots, stains, marks, tears as well as improving contrast, brightness, colour balance and enhancement of detail, focus and sharpness.
Our photograph restoration services include: Repairing tears and creases, removing folds, replacement of backgrounds, restoration of wedding photos, correcting colour balance, restoring faded images, restoring digital photos and digitally removing mould damage.
Our photograph retouching services include: Removing unwanted parts of photographs, adding to photographs parts of other photographs, retouching faces, recomposing the important elements of photographs, repairing poor digital prints, as well as combining different photographs.

Too often, important photographs are never seen being stored away in a box somewhere or buried inside a mobile phone more recently! Photographs are your best memories.
Preservation of Your Originals
A primary benefit is the preservation of your originals. In the case of deteriorating photographs, time is important. Professional photo restoration can prevent further damage to the original mattering so much if it does occur.

Add Sepia or Full Colour to Black and White Photographs
When restoring old photos, we can add a natural sepia to old black and white photos so all your restored images match each other. We can even transform your images to full colour. Professional restoration and editing techniques can add clearer focus or sharpness, besides adding realistic shades to the images.
Electronic Storage and Ease of Sharing
Restoring old photos allows you to convert them to digital images, which are easy to store and share with friends or family. With advances in technology, it’s possible to take an entire photo collection and store it on CD, DVD or memory stick. This can be a convenient way to retrieve a particular group of photographs or safely secure an additional copy, which will last virtually indefinitely. You can share digital copies through email or print as many copies as you need.

High Resolution Scanning and Optimisation of Photos
What is optimisation? – Each photograph is scanned and individually assessed and then manually optimised to correct fading, shadows and highlights as well as correcting poor colour balance. Any damage or blemishes are not corrected with the optimisation process. If any of the optimised photographs are subsequently fully restored these will be quoted individually and the optimisation cost deducted from the cost of restoration.
