Carol brought in 2 photos in there frames with broken glass. The photos had stuck to the glass and the glass had been broken when trying to remove them. This happens... a lot. If this happens to you. Please don't do anything further once you discover that the photo is struck to the glass. Bring it straight into me at Pixelfix Restoration and I can scan it through the glass before anything gets broken and things are made worse. Carol was lucky and we were able to restore the damaged areas and fix up the cracks in the glass.
Ian is updating his families genealogy files and he brought me a bunch of these very badly faded old black and white photos to be restored. The fading was not uniform and was quite bad in places. This type of old photo is very small and was not very sharp. The other blemishes and marks were also removed and the final restored photo was a big improvement on the originals.
Genealogy also known as family history, is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to obtain information about a family and to demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members. The results are often displayed in charts or written as narratives.
Davinder Brought in two very badly damaged photos that had been through the mill. It seemed so literally. Large sections of the image had been damaged so much that the surface had disappeared completely. But using Photoshop to build layers from the surround areas and using the clone and heal tools I was able to reconstruct the missing areas and match this with the rest of the photo. The results are really quite dramatic. Davinder was very pleased with the new photos. so much so that he asked us to frame them for him so they could go back up on the wall. Below is one of these images.
Davinder also wrote us a fantastic review on google you can read more about that here....
Professional service, excellent job done in agreed time.

It has been a very busy Christmas but we are almost at the finishing line now. A few more pick ups still to go but all the hard work is done. The feedback has been fantastic and here are a few reviews that we got on Google. Thank you everyone and Merry Christmas.
I dealt with Richard from PixelFix who assisted me to restore a very special photo of mine. He was very quick to respond to my enquiry and did an amazing job of removing a couple of objects from the background of the photo. The photo had “70’s” wall paper so it would have been very tricky to match up the design. I would highly recommend Richard if you need assistance with photo restoration. Thanks again Richard!

Richard’s service and work quality is excellent. He has done a great job on the only photo I have of my Grandad in the war, even though it was a poor copy. I recommend his work.

Theresa wanted to get this wonderful old school photo restored for her Mother. This was a big task as the photo was very badly damaged. The photo arrived in 2 pieces! Stitching this back together was not easy as the edges had frayed. But after hours of restoration using a number of different layers I had something that was looking fantastic.
Wow, that is fantastic, you are very clever.

Hi Richard, Great job.
In Photoshop I added a new background, used the stamp and healing brush to work away as much of the cracks and surface damage as possible then worked on replacing the colour. Over 3 days and 12 hours later we had this.
It looks great! Thank you
