After years of being moved from album to frame, or biscuit tin to shoe box it's not surprising that these precious images become damaged. The original picture may have had its faults, but after years of handling, strong light, moisture, and the odd unfortunate accident it's no longer fit for a frame. Guided by years of experience with thousands of images even the most extensive of damage can be repaired.

Making the transition from being stored in the cupboard under the stairs to pride of place on your living room wall can be achieved quickly and without any damage to the original photograph. Supplied with a good resolution scan the creases, tears, stains are removed, and the colour adjusted to it's original vibrance. All images are sent for approval before any charge is made, and amendments of both image and colour are made until you are completely happy.

Removing tears, creases, and cracks caused over time

Colour tinting black and white, or sepia photographs can produce a unique and breathtaking image. The aim should be to create something that puts new life into a portrait, but stays in keeping with the period. The working file is kept with all of it's separate colour layers, so if you want to change just individual parts of the image, it can be done quickly, and an amended digital proof sent for your approval. No extra charge is made for getting the finished image exactly as you want it.

Colour tinting black & white or sepia photographs

Some fantastic photographs can be recovered even if they didn't truly exist in the first place! Poor quality home cameras, or mistakes in processing can mean that parts of an irreplaceable memory weren't captured.

Rebuilding those missing parts with the same tone and texture takes skill and imagination, but the results can be truly wonderful, and provide a new, never seen before image for a whole new generation.

Completing those memories that didn't come out first time

A complete transformation from an easily overlooked snapshot to a wonderful record of a special day can be achieved by combining many techniques. Returning the original colour to a faded photograph may just be the beginning. Composition and content can be improved or changed while still keeping the historical content.

A dramatic transformation can turn a quickly taken snapshot into a nicely composed picture.

Dramatic transformations using colour and creativity

Restoration and repair can turn back the years for any photograph, but sometimes there is still something missing from the original photograph.

Adding in even the smallest of extra space to a composition can have a dramatic effect, and change a good picture into a truly great one.

Composition improved with added image creation

Some photographs have become so faded that they have almost disappeared. There are many techniques that can be used to enhance these images and bring back detail that seems lost forever. Layers of different colour filters, and years of experience produces fantastic results.

Enhancing faded images from disappearing forever

Restoration and repair can just be the start for some photographs. Striking images can be produced by adding colour, remastering faded or uneven vignettes, and rebuilding the original border artwork.

Sensitive restoration combined with creative elements that complement the original photograph.
