Photo Restoration services

Every picture is unique. A precious moment captured in time, whether it's a digital image from a wedding last month, a polariod print from a party in the seventies or a old sepia print from a hundred years ago.

You might have an unwanted waiter in the background of your wedding picture, an old polaroid print has that turned yellow, or a photo of your great grandparents that is damaged and faded. Fortunately, most of these problems can be rectified by photo restoration techniques, giving you a new digital image to keep your future generations to enjoy and treasure.

Restoring a photograph is all about enhancing and improving the original image.

The starting point is your scanned digital image. The first step is to repair any type of visible physical damage to the photo, like creases, folds and tears. Followed by removing any sorts of blemishes like scratches, marks, spots and stains. The final stage is to maximise the appearance by adjusting elements like contrast and brightness, colour balance, reducing graininess and sharpening detail where possible. The colourisation of a black and white photo, if required, is then undertaken after the image is repaired.
