We believe that you should never throw away your old damaged family photos without consulting with us first!
In many cases we can digitally repair most types of damage caused in old photos and restore your photos back to their original condition.
Not only will we fix or re-create any damage to your photos (where needed/possible), but we will also give the whole photographic image a general overhaul with our various digital techniques.
Image sharpening, colour balancing, scratch removal & contrast are among just some of the techniques that will be used to adjust, repair and improve the overall quality of the photograph back to it's restored glory.
See pricing and examples of our restoration work below:
Photo restoration pricing

Prices are for UK P&P only. If outside of the UK please contact us first for a quote on shipping.
Most companies we have seen online seem to charge a scanning fee as an additional service.
However, we believe that this is a main factor of the job when restoring your photographs. There can be no restoration service without scanning the document first and due to this, there will be no additional charges for scanning your photographs.
We accept payments via secure online payments such as PayPal, or by bank transfer.
We also accept cash payments in person when collection of original photos (and if re-prints have been confirmed in advance).
Unfortunately, we do not accept payments made by cheque as this is not a secure method for us.
Please note: Print orders will not be processed until payment has been received first.
Payments via PayPal
UK and international customers can pay using the PayPal secure payment platform.
PayPal is one of the world’s leading and most secure online payment platforms and is very simple to use. We can arrange to send you a PayPal invoice after confirmation of your restoration booking has been agreed.
If you bank online, you may wish to pay by bank transfer. Bank details are available on request. Please allow time for payment to clear before any restoration work is carried out.
Your order will be processed once the transfer has been completed and funds are cleared.
Heavy Restoration (Unsuspected)
At first glance I thought that this restoration wouldn't take too long but in actual fact, this restoration had surprisingly more work needed to repair it than first expected.
The image when it was given to me had been kept inside a frame with no glass to protect it so everyday elements such as dust, dirt & grease had covered a damaging glaze over the gloss finish of the photograph. It was only upon cleaning the image and closer inspection (before scanning) that the real damage of the photograph began to show through (see side by side comparison of just a small section of the repair work needed - There was a lot of scuffs to repair).
Also due to the conditions it was kept in, the gloss film of the photograph had become weak had started to wear away from the photo itself due to the weathering elements mentioned above.
This photograph required heavy cloning and patch tool work as well colour correction/balancing, contrast, sharpening and adjustment/layer work.
Heavy Restoration - Water Damage
This particular photograph was torn into 3 pieces and elements of the photo remained attached to the glass of the frame due to damp conditions, water damage and even sellotape had bee used to try and repair it prior to me being given it.
Careful cleaning and scanning was needed in order to piece this photo back together and whole sections had to be recreated virtually from scratch. It was not an easy task and took a very long time to repair.
