Photo Restoration

Brighton Based Photo Restoring Service

Rescuing cherished memories through old damaged photo restoration

We all know how precious our photographs are; they are memories and keepsakes to be treasured. However, over time, photos become damaged. Fear not, we are able to restore old photos and provide new digital copies and prints. These treasured memories captured on a camera are a perfect gift for loved ones on their birthdays or even at Christmas!

Nowadays most photos taken are digital but it hasn’t always been that way. Photos come in many different forms and require a different approach to digitise. This ranges from a simple scan of a print to shooting a backlit glass plate negative with a DSLR. In any case we can help you make the best decisions with digitisation and restoration.

Old photos can get a damaged in a variety of ways, some photos that seem too far gone can often be fully or at least partially saved with the magic of Photoshop. Our services include but are not limited to the following.

  • Image sharpening
  • Contrast adjustment
  • Fix image fade
  • Cropping
  • Minor crack repair
  • Discolouration fix
  • Mould removal

  • Tape & tape residue removal/repair

  • Face reconstruction
  • Colourisation
