Tony had some old photos that he asked me to restore and one of them was this delightful childhood photo. The head was missing, the bike was cut off, picture was off center. So with the help of Photoshop and a few photos from my other job as a real estate photographer, as PixelBOX photography. I was able to rebuild a background that was in keeping with the rest of the photo. The photo is now back on display and looking a whole lot better.

John Came to me with an armful of old historically important photographs and paintings. He had a story that he wished to share and tell the world. His grandfather was in the army and had documented his time in service through the war from sailing off to his return.
The photos were in varying conditions but all needed to be digitized to enable him to share the story and the journey of his ancestors. Below is an official portrait of the man in question Lincoln Lee. It required the most work being very badly faded, suffering from very bad silvering and wide spread scratches and other surface damage. Using the hue and saturation to increase the colour i was then able to mask off the various areas of silvering damage and repair them in Photoshop. Patience and lots of spot removal and a black and white adjustment layer brought this portrait back to life. A new background completed the picture and the restoration was a success .

The Restored-1 image, which had all that work, is just stunning. Really, a complete transformation.
Richard Brought in this wonderful old photo of Omana Beach just outside Auckland for restoration. The Photo was in a poor state but I was able to fully restore this in Photoshop by removing the yellow discolouration and extending the sea front to make this wonderful old photo come alive again. The finished photo restoration is now framed and is back up on display again.
Margret from Auckland brought in this wonderful old photo for restoration. It was in a poor state and in need of some PixelFIXING. Using Photoshop I was able to remove the discolouration using hue and saturation layer combined with black and white adjustment layer. Then it was mostly a few hours of cloning and healing to remove the numerous small blemishes.
Hi Richard, Great job.
Colin From Auckland brought in this wonderful old wedding photo that he wanted to restore for his wife as an anniversary present. This was the only colour photo from their wedding day and as such was a very precious memory. In Photoshop I was able to fix up the colour and remove the small marks and blemishes. The finished photo restoration was then framed in a simple but stylish white frame. Colin was so pleased with the result that he gave this wonderful review on Google.
When Summers were always hot and the lemonade was also fresh! This wonderful old photo was sent in by Glenda and in desperate need of some restoration. There were thousands of tiny cracks and some large creases that has destroyed some of the photo. But with the magic of Photoshop and also 5-6 hours of slow and steady work. I was able to full restore this wonderful old photo so that the memories of those wonderful summers could be shared for many years to come.
Kura came to me all the way from The Cook Islands last year with this very sad looking photo that was on the verge of total decay. I was able to reconstruct the missing pieces remove the red colour cast, fill in all the cracks and return this photo to a beautiful work of art that could be enjoyed again. Indeed this year she has just order 2 extra copies.
